MAN will be displaying its 2017 range of trucks, which it said would feature higher power of up to 640hp and torque along with finely tuned transmissions and switching functions into application-optimised drivetrains, at IAA Commercial Vehicles (IAA) 2016.

The new features will also be accompanied by exterior and design innovations, said the company.

The IAA 2016 is the world’s leading trade fair for mobility, transportation and logistics.

During the fair, MAN will highlight its optimised engine programme that can help improve fuel consumption and ensure increased performance and driving dynamics, as well as a high level of reliability.

The new generation D38 engine offers up to 640 HP and the new D26 offers a power spectrum from 420 to 500 HP with a simultaneously low tare weight and low fuel consumption.

In combination with the new versions of the MAN TipMatic transmission with individually coordinated driving programmes for every area of application, the MAN range provides “highly efficient, economical and environmentally-friendly drivetrains.”

In addition to this, MAN will be unveiling some design innovations for its TG series at the IAA 2016.

The MAN Lion features a striking exterior look, while the interior of all TG models is characterised by a warm color scheme, with new fabrics and seat covers creating a bright and high-quality image perfectly rounded off by the concise design of the steering wheel.

For the TGS series, aerodynamically optimized radiator fins with their upward angled blade profile improve the airflow to the radiator located behind and increase the cooling efficiency.

The new standard steering wheel optimises the centre of the driver’s workplace both optically and ergonomically and the new seat covers provide a sporty and secure grip as well as comfortable seating.

MAN has optimised the automated TipMatic gearbox in their vehicles with individual moving-off and switching strategies for each specific area of application and added various new functions to enhance efficiency and comfort.

The new functions of the gearbox are available for all 12-speed gearbox versions in the new TG generation and can be broken down into various gearshift programmes to be adjusted for both on-the-road and off-road usage.
