MAN introduces new XXL Cab

Australia will soon get its first look at the MAN XXL cab range Penske Commercial Vehicles announced today. Delivered to GI Logistics as part of MAN’s TGX range, the spacious XXL cab prime mover is 200mm taller than the previous XLX cab and nearly 500mm bigger than the XL Cab.

The D38, first introduced to market in October 2016, will house the first MAN 640hp Euro 6c engine, bringing the flagship model into the 600 horsepower category. It will be available in a 6x4 configuration. The engine will produce 3000Nm of torque.

Market demand for roomier cabs in the long-haul segment has driven the response from MAN as it looks to provide improved, more spacious interiors for drivers.

Kevin Dennis, managing director of Penske Commercial Vehicles said the feedback from the market was clear. Fleet managers and owner-operators were after premium conditions for drivers.

“The D38 has always delivered outstanding safety features, low whole-of-life costs, and maximum performance and efficiency,” Dennis said. “And now with the 640hp option, drivers that are after the extra power, will have that too.”

“The latest in European technology, the Euro 6c, with tighter on-board diagnostics, results in improved fluid consumption and, in some cases, longer oil drain intervals, yielding even lower whole-of-life costs.”

MAN’s Euro 6c engine is currently available in 580hp. No date has been announced for when the 640hp Euro 6c will be brought to market in 2018.
