MAN TGS in long-haul transport

MAN TGS – efficiency and economy in long-haul transport

The MAN TGS is characterised by its excellent performance in national and close-to-the-border long-haul transport, as well as in heavy-duty short-haul, municipal and building site traffic. The high-torque Common Rail engines and the MAN TipMatic® automatic gear shift system provide the necessary dynamics. With its high payload, unique ergonomics and economy, the MAN TGS sets the standard in long-distance transport.

A range of intelligent assistance systems and innovative technologies guarantee improved driving comfort, maximum efficiency and a high level of transport safety. These take the pressure off the driver on long journeys and ensure that the truck reaches its destination efficiently and on time.

For longer trips, the modern cabs of the MAN TGS provide high-quality living comfort. Discover the new MAN TGS.

Since 2002, the MAN TGS has represented robustness and reliability in long-haul transport. With a range of innovative driver assistance systems, it delivers its load safely and reliably. The necessary transport safety is provided by technologies such as the electronic stability program (ESP), the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and the lane guard system (LGS), which are included as standard and take the pressure off the driver on long journeys, and defuse critical driving situations when necessary.

The Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) warns the driver when there is a risk of collision with the vehicle in front or a stationary vehicle, and automatically initiates emergency braking when necessary. The Continuous Damping Control (CDC) guarantees increased driving safety in vehicles with a high centre of gravity, such as swap body trucks or timber transporters.

The lighter a vehicle, the more payload it can transport and the less fuel it consumes. The particularly light chassis of the MAN TGS-TS (tanker) is made from high-strength fine-grained steel, which gives it a particularly high bending strength and robustness. The new, heavy-duty series impresses with its consistent lightweight construction, which only increases the unladen vehicle weight by just under 200 kg, even with the extensive Euro 6 exhaust gas after-treatment system.

The even top edge of the frame allows all types of superstructures to be mounted onto the MAN TGS quickly and economically. The hole pattern enables it to be extended or converted at a later date. The frame clearance behind the cab can also be used for additional add-on components, such as a crane superstructure if necessary. Due to the different wheelbases, the MAN TGS can be configured for various fifth-wheel heights, as well as for Euro and high-volume trailers.

In national long-haul transport and over medium distances, the MAN TGS is miles ahead when it comes to economy. Thanks to its low weight, it has an above-average payload. The innovative Common Rail injection of the MAN engines ensures high power density and low fuel consumption.
