MAN TGS in distribution transport

Efficiency needs a strong drive

MAN vehicles with the new Euro 6 exhaust gas technology based on tried-and-tested engine technology, sophisticated components and perfectly coordinated technologies. This is all based on the high-torque six-cylinder engines. In order to achieve the extremely low emissions values, MAN uses Common Rail injection, exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and diesel particle filters (DPF/CRT). The result: MAN engines in Euro 6 set the standard when it comes to low fuel consumption and are also characterised by very low AdBlue® consumption.

Tailor-made powertrain for the numerous requirements of distribution transport – the advantages:

  Displacement Euro 6
D2066 10.5 l  
235 kW (320 HP), 1,600 Nm   X
265 kW (360 HP), 1,800 Nm   X
D2676 12.4 l  
294 kW (400 HP), 1,900 Nm   X
324 kW (440 HP), 2,100 Nm   X
353 kW (480 HP), 2,300 Nm   X

Since the 1st of January 2014, the exhaust-gas standard Euro 6 applies to all newly registered trucks in Europe. To comply with this demanding standard, MAN invested its entire engineering skills in the development of the Euro 6 engines. MAN has already successfully been using the key Common Rail, exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR), selective catalytic reduction and diesel particle filter (DPF/CRT) technologies for many years in its series production. For Euro 6, MAN has combined these sophisticated technologies and coordinated them perfectly. The result: The Euro 6 versions of MAN engines are also the most consumption-efficient units in the competitive market.

Gearbox – how efficiency gets into gear

Anyone who wants to get ahead in distribution transport needs a drive that saves fuel while maintaining a high output. With the MAN TipMatic® gearbox, which can be operated fully automatically or manually, efficiency is moved up a gear. The gearbox reduces fuel consumption, prevents damage to the powertrain and provides considerable weight advantages in comparison with similar gearboxes.

Improved efficiency: MAN TipMatic® with MAN EasyStart

This versatile MAN TGS also has numerous motorisation variants. The powerful and environmentally friendly Euro 6 six-cylinder in-line engines in the D20 and D26 series from 235 kW (320 HP) to 353 kW (480 HP) run practically pollution-free. For even more efficient driving, the MAN TipMatic® semi-automatic gearbox is available as an option. With automatic or manual operation by means of the touch-action lever on the steering wheel, the driver is not distracted and can fully concentrate on the road. If the engine brake is actuated, the gearbox selects the most appropriate gear automatically to provide full braking power. Thanks to the sophisticated gear shifting concept, the MAN TipMatic® is also extremely economical, as it reduces fuel consumption and prevents damage to the powertrain. The integrated MAN EasyStart starting aid, which automatically sustains the brake pressure when the brake pedal is released until the driver presses the accelerator, also helps to take the pressure off the driver. The MAN TipMatic® is offered as a twelve-speed version for six-cylinder engines

MAN TipMatic® 2 with new gearbox functions

The MAN TipMatic® 2 semi-automatic gearbox provides three new fuel-saving gearbox functions for even better efficiency.

Idle Speed Driving enables comfortable driving at idling speed. This function allows the driver to manoeuvre the truck sensitively and with great precision or to "flow" comfortably in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the motorway.

With Speed Shifting the MAN TipMatic® 2 switches faster between the three highest gears 10, 11 and 12. This allows the gearbox to shift down faster on inclines and the tractive power is interrupted for less time. This maintains more momentum and the vehicle uses less fuel.

The EfficientRoll gearbox function saves fuel by fully exploiting slight downhill inclines on rolling sections and is therefore designed for slight downhill stretches of motorway or country roads.

A stable chassis

With a large number of permissible front axle loads, leaf/air and full air suspension and a range of fifth-wheel heights for Euro and high-volume trailers, the MAN TGS is a reliable and stable partner for long-haul transport.

The chassis can be lowered by 90 mm and raised by 190 mm. The ECAS control system allows the frame height to be adjusted precisely. The system has a memory function for storing two heights and is extremely easy to operate with the touch of a finger.
