IVECO launched a brand new range of long-haul heavy trucks in Madrid on Tuesday night.

The S-WAY, which replaces the Stralis, is the first vehicle to be launched in the truck maker’s new WAY heavy range.

The S-Way uses an entirely new cab, available in two widths. Aerodynamics are better, resulting in a claimed 4% fuel economy improvement over its predecessor. Also new is a multi-piece bumper, which reduces repair costs in the event of an accident.

The truck uses the Stralis’ existing driveline, with 9-, 11- and 13-litre engines (330hp to 570hp) and 9- and 13-litre gas engines (270hp to 460hp). They continue to be paired with the ZF-sourced Hi-Tronix transmission.

The S-Way features an entirely new interior. It retains a manual handbrake and has been launched with mirrors instead of a camera and screen system like the new Mercedes-Benz Actros.
