IVECO launches T-Way off-road range

IVECO has launched the new T-Way off-road truck range, which will replace the Trakker model.

Recently exhibited at the Brisbane Truck Show, the T-Way is purpose built for the most difficult conditions and designed to meet the rigours of the toughest off-road applications such as mining and exploration, forestry work, water cartage, agricultural spreading and tipper work.

The range includes the hardcore off-road equipment of its predecessor, while introducing the latest Euro 6 (Step E) engine range, improved levels of comfort and refinement as well as a new cabin appearance that draws styling cues from the road going S-Way range.

On offer across the T-Way line-up are 4×4, 6×6 and 8×4 configurations and GVM/GCM of 20,500kg/44,000kg, 33,500kg/60,000kg and 41,000kg/60,000kg. Adding to the range’s flexibility is a choice of four wheelbases; which, model dependent, range from 3800mm to 5820mm.

The new T-Way range is available with four Euro6 (Step E) engines. Standard in the T-Way AD 4×4 is IVECO’s Cursor 9, 8.7l 6-cylinder powerplant producing 360hp (265kW) and torque of 1650Nm at just 925rpm. For those requiring additional power, the optional Euro6 Cursor 13 with its 12.9l displacement is also available. This engine produces 410hp (302kW) and 2100Nm of torque at 1000rpm.

In the T-Way AD 6×6 model, the Cursor 13 again features but in a higher state of tune, to produce 450hp (331kW) and 2200Nm of torque at 870 rpm, while in the dual steer T-Way AD 8×4, the Cursor 13 produces 510hp (375kW) and 2300Nm of torque from 900rpm.

Emission control on all engines is derived from IVECO’s patented Hi-eSCR after-treatment with Diesel Oxydation Catalyst, Diesel Particulate Filter, Selective Catalytic Reduction and Clean Up Catalyst.

Already popular in several IVECO road-going models, the Hi-Tronix Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) is specified in the T-Way. It’s featured as standard in the AD 4×4 in 12-speed guise, and if the AD 4×4 is selected with the optional larger 410hp engine, then it’s matched to the 16-speed Hi-Tronix AMT.

The 16-speed Hi-Tronix is standard on AD 6×6 and 8×4 models. Both AMTs provide the flexibility to be used in auto-mode as you would in an automatic, or alternatively, the driver can elect to manually select the gear via the column mounted sequential shifter, providing an additional level of control if the road conditions require it. A rear engine PTO comes standard on all models.

The Hi-Tronix transmissions offer fast and smooth gear changes and have been durability tested to over 1.2 million kilometres.

Building on the off-road prowess of its predecessor, T-Way features full-time drive systems in 4×4 and 6×6 variants, with drive to the rear axles in the 8×4 variant.

Aiding off-road capabilities is a generous 33° approach angle, while minimum front and rear ground clearance of 346mm and 284mm respectively with standard tyres, provides the ability to negotiate muddy or uneven ground more easily.

T-Way models utilise a steel chassis with 10mm thick frame that allows better flex and articulation over rough ground – its flat finish also means that body fitment to the new T-Way range is easier and more efficient. PTO on all models provides further flexibility and scope for a wide range of body types. A towing cross member and front tow hook also come as standard.

Smoothing out the bumps on the new AD 4×4 and AD 6×6 models while providing impressive articulation, is front parabolic suspension with dampers and stabiliser bar and rear 3-Leaf parabolic suspension with stabiliser bar.

The AD 8×4 also features front parabolic suspension with dampener and rear 4-Leaf parabolic suspension; there’s also an optional pneumatic suspension (8 bag) for this model.
