Penske New Zealand has welcomed the all-new MAN truck generation (TG) to the New Zealand market.

The introduction of the new TGL, TGM, TGS, and TGX truck ranges to New Zealand are the first MAN trucks designed from the ground up in twenty years.

With over 167,000 hours invested by MAN Truck & Bus in the design of the all-new truck generation, drivers will realise the ultimate package.

Awaiting drivers inside the cab is a modern and streamlined experience, including the intuitive dash layout, multi-function steering wheel, advanced infotainment system, and SmartSelect navigator. MAN’s innovative driver assistance features, such as adaptive cruise control, steering wheel airbag, cabin safety cell, emergency brake assist, lane departure warning, and more, ensure drivers have all the systems they need at their fingertips. And the spacious rest and sleep area is fully furnished with plentiful storage, a fridge, and air conditioning.

Delivering great efficiency and economy, MAN takes customers further with an economical range of engines. From the 220 hp D08 engine powering the TGL to the 640 hp D38 engine powering the TGX, MAN’s range of Euro 6 engines has the ideal solution for every application. Utilising software to determine the optimum moving off and gearshift strategy, the Tipmatic gearbox has load and inclination detection, ‘SmartShifting’ and ‘idle speed driving’ functionalities. Efficiency is further improved with the most powerful engine brake on the New Zealand market at 840 hp on the D38 engine.

These advanced features within the cabin and powertrain are complemented by highly reliable and fully integrated technology that delivers optimised uptime. Extended oil drain intervals and low tare weights yielding higher payload availability increase productivity and profits for customers.

All this is further backed by Penske New Zealand’s national MAN dealer footprint and MAN’s 24/365 support program, customised repair and maintenance packages, and generous warranties.

“We are thrilled to welcome the all-new MAN truck generation to the New Zealand market and introduce our customers to this superior portfolio,” said Brent Warner, general manager of Penske New Zealand.

“We are offering eight different cabin configurations from the crew cab that seats up to seven to the super spacious GX cab, and the D08, D15, D26, and D38 engines are all Euro 6, delivering power that is reliable and highly efficient.

“Close attention has been paid to ensuring the specifications are ideally suited to our New Zealand conditions, including tyre and diff ratio selections to optimise performance and economy for our unique terrain.

“We’re excited to be offering for the first time a down-line factory 8x4 model specifically for New Zealand too.

“We look forward to hearing the thoughts of our existing MAN customers and our new customers as they step into this truck generation and experience it for themselves.”
