Penske New Zealand has welcomed the all-new MAN Truck and Bus truck generation (TG) to the New Zealand market.
The introduction of the new TGL, TGM, TGS, and TGX truck ranges to New Zealand are the first MAN trucks designed from the ground up in twenty years.
With over 167,000 hours invested by MAN Truck & Bus in the design of the all-new truck generation, drivers will realise what MAN calls “the ultimate package”.
All-new modern interior
Awaiting drivers inside the cab is a modern and streamlined experience, including the intuitive dash layout, multi-function steering wheel, advanced infotainment system, and SmartSelect navigator.
MAN’s innovative driver assistance features, such as adaptive cruise control, steering wheel airbag, cabin safety cell, emergency brake assist, lane departure warning, and more, ensure drivers have all the systems they need at their fingertips. And the spacious rest and sleep area is fully furnished with plentiful storage, a fridge, and air conditioning.
Multiple Euro 6 engines to choose from
MAN is offereing a range of different Euro 6 engines in its TG range, from the 164kW (220hp) D08 engine powering the TGL to the 477kW (640hp) D38 engine powering the TGX.
Utilising software to determine the optimum moving off and gearshift strategy, the Tipmatic gearbox has load and inclination detection, ‘SmartShifting’ and ‘idle speed driving’ functionalities. Efficiency is further improved with the most powerful engine brake on the New Zealand market at 626kW (840hp) on the D38 engine.
The features within the cabin and powertrain are complemented by reliable and fully integrated technology that delivers optimised uptime. Extended oil drain intervals and low tare weights are said to yield higher payload availability increase productivity and profits for customers.
Penske New Zealand support
All this is further backed by Penske New Zealand’s national MAN dealer footprint and MAN’s 24/365 support program, customised repair and maintenance packages, and generous warranties.
“We are thrilled to welcome the all-new MAN truck generation to the New Zealand market and introduce our customers to this superior portfolio,” said Brent Warner, general manager of Penske New Zealand.
“We are offering eight different cabin configurations from the crew cab that seats up to seven to the super spacious GX cab, and the D08, D15, D26, and D38 engines are all Euro 6, delivering power that is reliable and highly efficient.
“Close attention has been paid to ensuring the specifications are ideally suited to our New Zealand conditions, including tyre and diff ratio selections to optimise performance and economy for our unique terrain.
“We’re excited to be offering for the first time a down-line factory 8×4 model specifically for New Zealand too.
“We look forward to hearing the thoughts of our existing MAN Truck and Bus customers and our new customers as they step into this truck generation and experience it for themselves.”
