MAN revealed a selection of new features across the weight range yesterday, from 3.5-tonne vans to top-weight tractors. 

The whole MAN truck range has been given a heavily revised cab interior, with a rearranged switch gear layout and colour information display. 

Floor space is improved by the gear selector being moved to the dash and a redesigned park brake console, although it remains a mechanical device rather than electronic.

The TGX also gets a new sound-deadening package.

The medium-weight TGM is now powered by an SCR-only D08 engine, in 4- and 6-cylinder versions, offering ratings from 160hp/600Nm to 320hp/2,500Nm. MAN claims a weight saving of up to 103kg and a fuel saving of up to 5%. The TGS also saves weight with a new hypoid rear axle, while 8x4 tippers now come with a four-year warranty.

The TGE van and chassis-cab range is now available with front, rear or all four driven wheels. It is also available with a ‘Vans To Go’ line-up of ready bodied vehicles, comprising a dropside and tipper from Ingimex and a JC Payne Luton van.  

With MAN the only heavy truck brand with a full manufacturer presence at the show, its UK MD Thomas Hemmerich expressed to CM his bewilderment at other makers’ reluctance to attend.
