All-new MAN truck range sets a new benchmark

The first newly-developed MAN truck generation in two decades, Penske Australia and MAN Truck & Bus introduced the all-new MAN truck generation (TG) to the Australian market late last year. 

Boasting excellent driver fit, great efficiency and economy features, and optimised uptime, the new truck generation makes for a strong business partner. 

With over 167,000 hours invested by MAN Truck & Bus in the design of the all-new truck generation, customers will realise the ultimate package. 

When it comes to excellent driver fit, the streamlined and modern MAN workspace sets a new benchmark. The intuitive and fully digital dash is centrally located and displays in high resolution and full colour. The multi- function steering wheel is highly ergonomic and intuitively arranged. The advanced infotainment system with a 12.3” display is easy to navigate and delivers an exceptional infotainment experience. 

The rotary/push SmartSelect navigator allows for quick and straightforward navigation of functions. This all yields a user- friendly and ergonomically optimal cabin environment. 

The spacious rest and sleep area are fully furnished with everything a driver could require in a home away from home. And when combined with MAN’s innovative driver assistance features such as ACC, steering wheel airbag, cabin safety cell, emergency brake assist, ComfortSteering, and much more, drivers won’t want to leave the cabin. 

Delivering great efficiency and economy, MAN takes customers further with less. Economical engines range from the 250hp D08 to the 640hp D38 Euro 6e engine, with various options in between. 

The MAN Tipmatic gearbox shift system uses software to determine the optimum moving off and gearshift strategy in all situations in conjunction with load and inclination detection. Coupled with ‘SmartShifting’ and the ‘idle speed driving’ functionality, MAN delivers the ultimate transmission. 

Efficiency is further improved through an enhanced overall aerodynamic package and the Turbo EVBec that produces 840hp of engine braking. 

The modern and intuitive cabins, and efficient and economical truck features, are further complemented by highly reliable and fully integrated technology that delivers optimised uptime. Extended oil drain intervals mean less time off the road for customers, and low tare weights mean higher payload availability, further increasing productivity. This is backed by an extensive national MAN dealer footprint and a host of rental and leasing options from Penske Truck Rental’s national network. 

Furthermore, over the last decade, German Technical Inspection Agency (TÜV) reports have confirmed that MAN’s quality has continually improved, giving MAN and its customers an edge over competitors. 

All of this is underpinned through MAN’s comprehensive 24/7 roadside assist program, customised repair and maintenance packages, generous warranties, and powerful enterprise-grade telematics solution, MAN Opti- Connect, offering customers the ultimate strong business partnership.
