New MAN in town for Brisbane trucking festival

02 Jan, 2023

The first newly-developed MAN truck generation in two decades will be centre stage on the Penske Australia stand at the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show

The first newly-developed MAN in two decades, Penske Australia and MAN Truck & Bus introduced the all-new MAN truck generation to the Australian market in August.

Imported and distributed by Penske Australia, the TGL, TGM, TGS and TGX ranges comprising the new truck generation boast excellent driver fit and great efficiency and economy features.

When it comes to driver fit, the streamlined and modern workspace sets a new benchmark. The intuitive dash layout, multi-function steering wheel, advanced info-tainment system, and SmartSelect navigator provide a user-friendly and ergonomically-optimal cabin environment.

The spacious rest and sleep area is 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.

The MAN Tipmatic gearbox shift system uses software to determine optimum moving off and gearshift strategy in all situations in conjunction with load and inclination detection.

Coupled with ‘SmartShifting’ and ‘idle speed driving’ functionality, MAN delivers the ultimate transmission.

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

The modern and intuitive cabins and efficient and economical truck features and systems are further complemented by reliable and 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.

This is backed by an extensive national MAN dealer footprint and a host of rental and leasing options from Penske Truck Rental.

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

All this is underpinned via MAN’s 24/7 roadside assist program, custom repair and maintenance packages, long warranties, and enterprise-grade telematics solution, MAN Opti-Connect.

Craig Lee, Executive General Manager of On-Highway at Penske Australia, is confident the new MAN truck generation will redefine trucking.

“And as we partner with our dealer network to continue to roll out opportunities for new and long-standing customers to climb into the cab, we’re sure they will also be convinced the new TG has redefined the Australian market,” says Lee, who chats with BTS23’s Harrison Hunkin in an exclusive interview above.
