Among the innovations in the medium-duty truck sector, MAN TGL and TGM are now on the move with a new engine featuring new power stages. The new MAN D08SCR generation of engines excels with its simpler design and exhaust gas aftertreatment based solely on Selective Catalytic Reduction technology. This expands the range of applications while easing maintenance and strengthening overall reliability. MAN has also managed to further reduce the new unit’s consumption by 5.5 percent. The TGL and TGM can also boast added driving comfort and efficiency thanks to new functions for the TipMatic gearbox. Inside the cab, the workplace experiences an additional upgrade with new controls, making it more driver-friendly.
While the new interior design primarily takes shape around the workplace in the short C and M cabs, drivers will also benefit from a redesign of the living area in the long L, LX, XL, XLX and XXL cabs, which are chiefly used in the MAN TGX and TGS. The living area changes include new storage and lighting features as well as a new retractable fridge, located fully underneath the resting bunk. All the important comfort functions can be controlled via a new operator control concept. In addition, the TGX series ensures restful sleep with an acoustic package that markedly further reduces the noise levels in the cab via extensive insulation measures.
MAN has equipped the new Adaptive Cruise Control variant with a Stop-and-Go function to prevent driver fatigue as far as possible on congested roads and in sluggish traffic situations. This automatically regulates the distance from the vehicle in front (including at low speeds), slows the vehicle (to a stop if necessary) and automatically moves off again after short stops. This way, the driver can relax and enjoy the ride free of stress, even in stop-and-go traffic.
