The new D08 engine

MAN TGL – for convincing driving dynamics.

The most extensive manoeuvrability in every application: maximum payload, high loading capacity and low fuel consumption make our MAN TGL a real multi-talent, cutting a great figure both in the municipal sector and in construction, or even in classical distribution transport. Regardless of your requirements, our MAN TGL can be configured precisely to meet your specific needs.

Its short wheelbase means the MAN TGL is exceptionally manoeuvrable. A characteristic that really comes into its own when used on construction sites with limited space, and also in heavy inner-city traffic. And thanks to the innovative and extra light D08 engine series, you can now save up to 5% on fuel. This is in part due to its more streamlined design and lower number of components, which in addition make it more easy to service. Enjoy the best in driving dynamics with our MAN TGL.

Engine & gearbox – the new D08 engine

Engine: D0834, 118-162 kW, MAN D08 engine in Euro 6


MAN TGL D0834 engine in Euro 6

Achieves more with less: the new MAN D08 engine generation. Offering you more HP and torque on the road despite a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 5%. The secret: reducing it down to the essentials. The engine is lighter, less complex and therefore easier to service thanks to much simpler exhaust gas cleaning and cooling systems. An additional plus: the new engine generations can also be fuelled with environmentally-friendly biodiesel, making them as pollution-free as possible on the roads. The use of components with a reduced weight, such as the oil sump made from robust plastic, has additionally increased the payload of the MAN TGL for you. We put so much thought into our new MAN D08 engines to ensure you’ll never have to give them a second thought.

Engine: D0836,184-235 kW, MAN D08 engine in Euro 6


MAN TGL D0836 engine in Euro 6

High power, simplified construction: The 6-cylinder version of the new, streamlined MAN D08 engine generation has up to 250 HP (MAN TGL) under the hood. Its innovative engine and exhaust gas cleaning concept ensures optimal power delivery, a higher level of efficiency and the best possible performance. You are now able to transport even more with our MAN TGL, thanks to the low weight offered by the truck itself. The reduced weight of the engine allows you to considerably reduce your fuel consumption too, of course. Thanks to a reduced number of components, our MAN D08 engine functions fault-free in continuous operation, saving you time on tiresome maintenance. Efficient, high performance and particularly easy to service – the new D08 engine generation from MAN.

MAN TipMatic® 12-speed gearbox

MAN TipMatic®

Intelligent gearbox with gearshift-fun guarantee

The highest levels of driving comfort and effective cost-cutting come together in our MAN TipMatic® gearbox, available as an optional extra. The SpeedShifting gearbox function in the 12 speed version makes it possible to change quickly between the highest three gears, so that your MAN TGL is able to master inclines with significantly greater efficiency. The intelligent gearbox system with its rocking-free function prevents the tyres from slipping, so that even in sticky situations, you are able to get driving freely again quickly. You can also allow the MAN TGL to cruise along thanks to the Idle Speed Driving gearbox function; giving you a relaxing driving experience, even in slow-moving traffic.

Design & driver's cab


Everything in sight, everything to hand – and everything in the right place: The perfect set up awaits you behind the wheel of the MAN TGL, with the most modern technology available driving your business. And because good work requires proper relaxation, we have also optimised the rest compartment for you.

Highlights of the MAN TGL

  • Pioneering networking thanks to the new on-board telematics module (RIO-Box)
    The RIO-BOX is your entry into the world of Logistics 4.0, and comes on board as standard. It integrates vehicle information with digital value-adding services, raising the efficiency of your transport processes to a whole new level.

  • Optimised switch and operate concept
    To make your everyday life that bit easier, the switches in the cockpit have been placed according to their usage frequency, have been grouped in usage groups and are thus even more intuitive to operate. Tips and warnings easily catch your eye on the new high-definition colour display: keeping your eyes free for the road.

  • Space-saving space optimisation
    Everything has its place with us: your documents are just as easily to hand as the stowage compartment and the electrical connections for your mobile devices. You have much more room in the newly-designed driver's cab, thanks to the much slimmer switch and/or middle consoles, as well as the cool and stowage compartments that can be completely stowed away under the bed.

  • Hard-wearing interior
    Warm colours in the optimised interior ensure a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The optional “Urban Concrete” colour palette for the surfaces is the right colour to choose if you are often out and about in muckier areas. It doesn’t matter if it is mud, dust or oil, the robust materials will forgive anything. At least coffee stains are now a thing of the past, thanks to the new spring-assisted cup holders.

  • Comfortable relaxation zone
    Strength lies in tranquillity: as only a well-rested driver is able to give it their best behind the wheel. High-quality beds with slatted frames ensure a relaxing sleep and generous storage compartments offer plenty of space for your luggage and personal items. In the MAN TGL, you don’t have to give up on your favourite habits either, such as reading comfortably in bed: stowage compartments for books and glasses are easily in reach, as is the flexibly adjustable gooseneck lamp.
