Transport efficiency at its best

An efficient driveline and efficiency-enhancing assistance systems have a positive effect on fuel consumption.

The MAN TGX driveline

In national and international transport business, performance and efficiency are crucial for success. MAN trucks for use in long-haul transport rely on powerful yet economical engines not only ensuring more payload but also saving fuel.

The MAN TGX with D26 Euro 6 engine saves up to 8.2 % fuel – compared to the previous model. In addition to our efficient engines, also other efficiency-enhancing innovations contribute to this result.

The extended hypoid axle with a particularly long final drive ratio, which is used in long-haul transport with up to 44 tonnes gross weight, ensures a lower rated speed and thus lower fuel consumption.

Another efficiency-enhancing component in long-haul transport is the GPS supported MAN EfficientCruise cruise control . The cruise control detects up and downward gradients along the route up to three kilometres (two miles) in advance and always adjusts the selected gear and speed to achieve optimum economy whilst driving.

The driver’s workplace in the MAN TGX

A workplace that puts the driver first

Take a seat in the MAN cockpit and drive confidently – thanks to the workplace with excellent driver fit, precise steering and digital mirror replacement system for an ideal overview.

A cockpit with excellent driver fit

A comfortable and ergonomic workplace facilitates the driver’s daily work routines on motorways or dual carriageways. Our cockpit is optimised to the driver: The focus is on the premium seats with its ergonomic seat contours developed in extensive driver tests. Regardless of the driver’s physique, the seats offer a relaxed and comfortable seating position on long journeys. Instrument panel and exterior mirror designs are aimed at maximum direct view of the surroundings. All controls can be easily reached from the driving position and the display elements are arranged at a perfect viewing distance. Operation is intuitive and clear. With the innovative MAN SmartSelect control unit including a hand rest, the driver can easily operate the infotainment system even under rough driving conditions.

The steering wheel with a significantly increased adjustment range adds perfectly to the ergonomic workplace. This ensures a personalised and ergonomic steering position for drivers of any height and physique. In addition, the adjustment range of the driver’s seat has been significantly extended.

Steering made easy

MAN ComfortSteering enhances the hydraulic steering system of your MAN truck with additional steering torque from an electric motor. The electronic control unit reliably ensures precise steering and directional stability. At higher speeds, the active MAN ComfortSteering system automatically reduces the steering force, making it easier for the driver to maintain directional stability. The navigation system ensures that the system is only activated when driving on motorways. It will be automatically deactivated before using routes which are unsuitable.

Digital mirror replacement system for the best possible overview

With MAN OptiView , the driver always has an excellent overview – even when driving at dusk or at night. Five exterior cameras capture the traffic situation next to, behind and in front of the truck. Irritating glare from the low sun or from high-beam headlights of following vehicles is filtered out. The displays in the cab – on the left and on the right in the area around the A-pillar – automatically adjust to the ambient brightness, the camera image is always perfectly visible. The view through the side windows is no longer obstructed by mirror arms.

It is possible to activate the monitoring mode of the digital exterior mirrors during driving breaks. Even with the curtains closed, the driver keeps an eye on the vehicle’s surroundings at all times.
