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 with our super lightweight engine series D08 you can save even more 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.

Areas of application for the MAN TGL

Engine & gearbox

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


MAN TGL D0834 engine in Euro 6

Achieve more with less: the D08 engine generation from MAN. More HP and torque on the road than the previous generation, despite up to 5 % less fuel consumption. 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 D08 engine can also be fuelled with environmentally-friendly biodiesel, reducing pollution to a minimum when on the road. 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. With our MAN D08 engines we ensure that you never have to worry about your engine again.

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 sleek 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. Our MAN D08 engine with its reduced number of components runs without any disruptions when in constant use, meaning there is no need to spend more time than necessary on tiresome maintenance. Efficient, high performance and particularly easy to maintain – the D08 engine generation from MAN.

Design & cab

MAN TGL highlights

  • Pioneering networking thanks to the new on-board telematics module (RIO box)
    The RIO box is your ticket to the world of Logistics 4.0, fitted for you 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 centre consoles, as well as the cool and stowage compartments that can be completely stowed away under the bed.

  • Hard-wearing interior
    Warm colours optimise the interior, offering 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.

  • A comfortable place to relax
    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 within close reach, as is the flexibly adjustable gooseneck lamp.


Because it's not all about what’s on the inside: aerodynamic design and a well thought out exterior also make a valuable contribution to efficiency, helping you to get even more out of your truck.
