MAN Truck & Bus
The new TGX not only made its way from production to the road last year, but also won a coveted trophy: It was voted Truck of the Year, one of the most important awards in the transport industry. Which new features convinced the jury? We'll find all the answers to this question in our practical test on the test track.
To provide the best possible support to drivers, the development process for the new MAN truck generation focused particularly on the cab as a combination of workplace and living space.
The new trucks are not only more comfortable, but also more dynamic and economic than ever before. The new truck has a drive that is fully tuned for efficiency and performance, so it extracts even more power from every drop of fuel.
The new GPS-based EfficientCruise assistance system continuously determines the truck's current position and direction of travel and links this information with saved road map data and the route planned in the navigation system. The system thus knows the topography of the road ahead and calculates the optimum speed and gear shift strategy for a particularly fuel-efficient driving style.
The streamlined, application-oriented format of the electric and electronic architecture is also fundamentally new. The newly developed on-board network has a modern central computer that controls all the processes and enables significantly improved interaction of all sensors installed in the truck.
These assistance systems also ensure further safety: a congestion assistant takes over continuous guidance of the vehicle in stressful congestion situations on the motorway. A lane change assistant enables the driver to avoid possible collisions with other road users.
Reliability not only means the new MAN truck generation is even smoother, more trouble-free and safer on the road. But also that transport companies can even better plan and organise upcoming repairs and workshop visits. For maximum availability.
Whether in sun, rain, snow or icy temperatures: the new truck has covered a total of 5,000,000 kilometres in test drives prior to market launch. This has ensured that the vehicle reacts perfectly in all conditions..
The new MAN-truck impresses with its dynamic exterior design including highlights such as its LED headlights, but also with its trademark – the lateral aerodomes. Reduced to three sharply contoured curves, they are even more effective.
… at Bilster Berg comes to an end. The new truck was able to fully convince via its performance. But a strong partner not only builds a great vehicle, but also supports its customers and drivers in all other challenges. For an all-inclusive, personal service. 24 hours a day.
