The new MAN TGX D38 − efficiency meets performance
The new MAN TGX D38 has a tailored powertrain with numerous efficiency functions and is designed for demanding transport tasks. Its core element is the new D38 six-cylinder inline engine with a displacement of 15.2 litres. This power unit stands for superb power delivery and extends the TGX model range by the HP classes 540, 580 and 640.
Thanks to the many new features in the powertrain as well as its powerful high-torque D38 engines and many comfort- and safety-related improvements, the new MAN TGX D38 is now even more efficient and high-performance.
In the development of the TGX D38, MAN consistently kept the total cost of ownership (TCO) in central focus and managed to combine
- the new MAN D38 engine,
- the enhanced MAN TipMatic® shifting system with new gear functions, and
- the new GPS-controlled cruise control system MAN EfficientCruise® with MAN EfficientRoll
into an extraordinarily efficient total package.
MAN has designed the new TGX D38 as an ideal truck for heavy-duty long-haul transport and offers suitable basic vehicles. The maximum torques between 2,700 Nm (540 HP) and 3,000 Nm (640 HP) are available in all gears. For customers who often transport high gross train weights, the new TGX D38 offers a fascinating combination of excellent transport capacity and cost efficiency. For routes that place maximum topological demands on the vehicle, the new TGX D38 has enduring power reserves and good traction power on gradients. High transport speeds can thus also be achieved on difficult routes. The enormous output of the continuous braking systems also allows for higher average speeds on downward gradients.
