A Central North Queensland freight carrier has celebrated the opening of the 2019 Brisbane Truck Show by receiving delivery of a TGX D38 PerformanceLine.
The limited edition vehicle powered by a 640hp engine in turn housed by an XXL cab, with an internal height of two metres, was presented to CNQ Freight Services on the first day of the four day long event.
Penske Commercial Vehicles National Sales Manager Sergio Carboni, who was on hand to present the truck to media said it was the first of the limited edition PerformanceLine units to be sold to CNQ Freight Services.
“Through Penske Truck Leasing, CNQ has secured a leasing package that includes very competitive rates and full maintenance giving complete peace of mind,” he said.
“As with CNQ’s other MANs, we know this unit will deliver outstanding fuel efficiency, low whole-of-life costs, the ultimate in safety and comfort, along with excellent reliability.”
CNQ Freight Services has been running MAN commercial vehicles in its fleet for the last four years.
The longstanding partnership with Penske Power Systems Brisbane, according to CNQ Freight Services Director Andrew Cox, was a decisive influence behind the purchasing process.
“We have worked with Callie Le Roux of Penske Power Systems for a long time,” he said.
“He told us about the PerformanceLine and once we learned more about the unit, we were sold,” said Cox.
“From fuel efficiency, to comfort, to reliability, the MANs are a favourite among the fleet.”
The flagship MAN truck boasts a powerful 15.2L 640hp D38 engine that delivers 3,000 Nm of torque at 930 – 1,350 rpm.
It comes with an automated manual 12‐speed Traxon transmission.
With an overarching view to maximising safety for its drivers, clients and the general public, the Glen Cameron Group has specified SAF-Holland G36 fifth-wheels with RECOSS integrated dashboard display status alert on a batch of new Volvo prime movers. Longer release handles requiring significantly reduced pull effort and one-handed operation are big drawcards.
