Attendees at this year’s Brisbane Truck Show (BTS) will be able to take an in-depth look at one of the country’s most eagerly anticipated new heavy-duty truck models, the IVECO S-WAY.
With its stunning cabin design, highlighted by a prominent grille, angular headlamps and clever front bumper integration, S-WAY delivers contemporary aesthetics that are immediately striking, while under the skin, models feature the latest in European technology including advanced Euro6 (Step E) engines matched to market-leading Automated Manual Transmissions.
The S-WAY launch completes IVECO Australia’s transition to a full importer and distributor of commercial vehicles, with the model joining its European-produced light and medium duty stablemates, the Daily and Eurocargo, along with its extensive off-highway line-up which incorporates Daily 4×4, Eurocargo 4×4, T-WAY and ASTRA.
The transition to a fully imported model range helps streamline IVECO’s operations and carries considerable benefits for the brand and its customers, including allowing IVECO ANZ to closely align model introductions with IVECO Europe, bringing the latest technology and innovation to local markets faster.
But while the S-WAY ushers in a new era for IVECO as an exclusive European manufacturer, the model – along with the broader IVECO line-up – still has strong connections with Australia, with considerable input being provided by IVECO Australia engineers during development to make the range fit-for-task for Australian and New Zealand road transport applications and conditions.
Local engineering and validation teams have played a major role in trialling the range over the last 18 months, with test vehicles amassing thousands of kilometres in a variety of real-world operating environments at full GVM. As a result of this input S-WAY models will feature several exclusive to our market specifications and configurations including a B-Double variant.
The S-WAY range comprises both rigid (6×2, 6×4 and 8×4 – with load share front suspension) and prime mover (4×2 and 6×4) variants with GVM and GCMs for the new range spanning from 18,200kg to 27,600kg (GVM), and from 50,000kg to 70,000kg (GCM) for prime movers and 27600kg (GVM) and 70,000t (GCM) for selected rigids (13l 6×4 and 8×4 models).
