Anyone who wants to get ahead in distribution transport needs a drive that saves fuel while maintaining a high output. The high-torque MAN Common Rail engines impress with their optimum torque curve, low consumption and long maintenance intervals. The powerful and environmentally friendly Euro 3 four- and six-cylinder in-line engines in the D08 series from 110 kW (150 HP) to 176 kW (240 HP) run practically pollution-free.
Tried-and-tested technology for ultimate reliability
MAN has incorporated its entire engineering expertise into the development of the Euro 3 engine to satisfy this demanding standard. MAN has already successfully been using the key Common Rail, exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR). These fully developed technologies were combined and optimally tuned to one another for Euro 3. The result: Euro 3 versions of MAN engines are among the most consumption-efficient units in the competitive market.
Gearbox – how efficiency gets into gear
For even more efficient driving, the MAN TipMatic® semi-automatic gearbox is available as an option. The gear shifting concept reduces fuel consumption and prevents damage to the powertrain. The MAN TipMatic® is offered as a twelve-speed version for six-cylinder engines. Easy-to-operate manual gearboxes are also available with nine gears. In all versions, the current gear is shown on the driver's display.
Moving efficiency up a gear. MAN TipMatic®
Efficiency is one of the major benefits of the MAN TipMatic® semi-automatic gearbox. Another is the high level of comfort. The MAN TipMatic® can be operated effortlessly, either fully automatically or manually using the touch-action lever on the steering wheel. The driver is not distracted and can fully concentrate on the road. If the engine brake is actuated, the gearbox selects the most appropriate gear automatically to provide full braking power – a clear advantage when it comes to safety. The MAN TipMatic® is also extremely economical, as it reduces fuel consumption and prevents damage to the powertrain.
Maximum stability, minimum weight
The Euro standard has changed, but the body-mounting capability has stayed the same. The MAN frame design continues to offer economical body solutions with full utilization of the loading length. The frame concept with its even top frame edge makes it particularly easy to attach superstructures both quickly and cost-efficiently, without having to drill holes and compromise corrosion protection.
The free space on the frame and the KSM interface for external data exchange also give the frame an ideal body-mounting capability. Specific frame add-ons for numerous superstructures are available ex works.
Whatever the superstructure, the handling of the MAN TGL distribution truck is excellent. This is facilitated by the low-friction and low-noise hypoid axles, as well as the sophisticated chassis. In addition to the tried-and-tested parabolic leaf springs, the air suspension with ECAS electronic control delivers a high level of driving comfort and stability. The level can also be adjusted to different loading ramp heights by means of a manual control unit.
