The MAN EfficientCruise GPS-assisted cruise control system detects up and downward gradients along the route up to three kilometres (two miles) in advance. As a result, the cruise control can always adjust the selected gear and speed to achieve optimum economy whilst driving. Downshifts are suppressed where appropriate. This ensures fewer traction interruptions and fuel savings.
MAN EfficientCruise takes into account the route ahead and calculates the most efficient driving style. A smooth and consumption-oriented intervention in the gear selection not only eliminates traction interruptions, but also offers a harmonious driving experience. The driver simply selects the desired speed and one of the four possible speed tolerance levels (ECO Level I – IIII). The ECO Level can be adjusted at any time while driving.
In combination with MAN EfficientRoll, the MAN EfficientCruise GPS-assisted cruise control saves even more fuel and your vehicle is even more environmentally friendly on the road.
Thanks to MAN EfficientRoll with GPS preview, coasting is intelligently controlled: If fuel can be saved, the gearbox automatically shifts to the neutral position “N” – even on a slight downhill slope. Thus the momentum is maintained and the vehicle loses speed less quickly than with an engaged gear. New: When coasting, the engine only runs at 550 rpm (instead of the normal idling speed of 600 rpm). This further reduces fuel consumption.
