MADE FOR EFFICIENCY

Long-haul vehicles should ideally have a great deal of torque, combined with great fuel efficiency. Just as you do in the new MAN TGX.

In it, as soon as you turn the ignition key, you can feel the majestic power of the engine. That is because the Euro 6 version of the new MAN D26 and of the new MAN D38 deliver a convincing extra 20 hp of engine power and 200 Nm more torque in all gear ratios and transmission variants (not with the 640 hp engine). The Common Rail diesel engines MAN D20 and MAN D26 with cooled exhaust gas recirculation also have service intervals of up to 140,000 km. These engines do more than just set standards in terms of reliability and service costs. They also deliver great fuel economy.

With the new MAN D26 this is approx. 2.5 % less than in model year 2015, and about 1.9 % less in the new MAN D38 (not with the 640 hp engine). With the new MAN TGX EfficientLine 3, MAN also provides a comprehensive fuel-saving package. This saves diesel costs, reduces CO 2 emissions and then delivers you a decisive competitive advantage. Cost savings can be achieved of up to 6.35 % compared to the previous version.

The 4- and 6-cylinder engines with two-stage turbo-charging guarantee ample pulling power right across every engine speed range, enhance the running smoothness and get the maximum out of every litre of fuel. In comparison with a long-haul vehicle with standard equipment, savings of up to 20 % can be achieved.

MADE FOR DESIGN

Great views. On every drive.

In the new MAN TGX, you really do get down the road in style. The front of the vehicle and the interior have both received an attractive facelift.

This starts with the most important detail. The MAN lion emblem. It now sits on the radiator grille and the steering wheel on a high-gloss black background and delivers a self-assured first impression outwards as well as inwards. A new plastic bumper with a slatted structure enhances the looks of the vehicle and also optimises the flow of cooling air. Optionally, it can be fitted with chrome slats.

In the cab, the warm sand and graphite tones of the interior panelling, surfaces of grained plastic, satin-chromed door handles and the new seat covers create a comfortable and stylish atmosphere. The look of the cab interior can also be individually designed using three optional variants for the allround trim strips (brushed aluminium, Net, Black, wood). The standard multi-function steering wheel has received a new and striking design. The height and angle of the multi-function steering wheel can be adjusted freely and it is also available in a leather version. Various functions are integrated in the steering wheel in a clearly laid out and intuitive manner. It becomes the interface between vehicle and driver. Without taking your hands off the wheel you can call up vehicle information, receive telephone calls and adjust the radio settings.

MADE FOR COMFORT

Totally in the comfort zone

How you sit affects how you drive. For drivers who cover 130,000 kilometres or more every year, exemplary seat ergonomics are an important factor for general well-being and performance.

After a long hard day, they should not feel it in their back. That is why the new MAN TGX provides air-suspended comfortable seats with integrated head rests and three-point seat belts which the driver can adjust individually, such as through pneumatic height adjustment and vertical damper setting. With the new Alcantara leather seat, the genuine leather covering provides the optimum combination of comfort and durability in the areas subjected to greatest wear and tear. Whether it is seat heating, pneumatic lumbar support or side contours and shoulder support – there are almost no limits to your options, including in aesthetic terms.

The ultimate luxury is the climate-controlled seat for a pleasant warm or cool feeling at any time. Regarding on-board air-conditioning: the air-conditioning system with automatic temperature control does the job perfectly. A diesel heater, an auxiliary water heater and a park air-conditioning system are available as optional extras.

MADE FOR WORK

The MAN safety and assistance systems deliver more safety, fewer accidents and
greater efficiency.

In addition to economic aspects, protecting the driver and other road users in the best possible way are priority matters. We need to do all we can to minimise the risk of accidents, which is why the new MAN TGX offers a safety architecture with innovative technologies. This helps the driver in everyday and in difficult situations, and makes an effective contribution towards the avoidance of accidents.

Electronic stability program (ESP)

ESP protects you from unpleasant surprises. ESP sensors constantly monitor the driving dynamics. If there is a risk of imminent skidding or tipping over, the separate wheels are braked accordingly and, where necessary, the engine torque is reduced. In this way ESP stabilises the vehicle and keeps it safely in the lane. MAN offers the electronic stability program for vehicles with leading or trailing axles and even for 4-axle vehicles or multiple tractors.

MAN BrakeMatic® brake system with ABS and ASR

The most important distance is the braking distance. To prevent any nasty surprises, the electronic brake system (EBS), including ABS and ASR, ensures reduced braking distances. The coupling force control for optimal balancing of the trailer and/or semitrailer brakes enables perfect brake performance, reduced braking distances and evens brake lining wear along the entire vehicle combination to increase the service life of the linings.

Continuous braking

EVBec®: As a further development of the MAN EVB engine brake (Exhaust Valve Brake), the EVBec® has many advantages, e.g. an improved braking effect by controlling the exhaust gas back pressure, significantly increased brake output especially in the lower engine speed range, overheating protection during long braking operations and constant brake output whether the engine speed is rising or falling. Three brake output stages are available. The retarder is a hydrodynamic continuous brake integrated into the gearbox housing. Its brake output depends on the driving speed, with the best performance achieved in the medium to high speed range. The brake output level does not depend on gearshifts or clutch operation. This increases driving safety during long descents by relieving the load on the service brake system.

Brake assistant

The brake assistant registers speed and pressure when the brake pedal is operated and optimises the applied brake pressure through to full brake force. It recognises an emergency stop when it is initiated and immediately develops the largest possible brake pressure.

New Emergency Brake Assist (EBA)

As even a brief moment of distraction can lead to an accident, MAN has developed the anticipatory Emergency Brake Assist (EBA). It gives drivers an advance warning of impending collisions, providing them with valuable time to react. The system automatically initiates braking in an emergency. The optimised Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) features a more advanced traffic monitoring system by using two independent sensor systems (radar and video) to detect a potential collision more quickly and to issue a warning signal earlier. EBA complies with the more stringent legal requirements for emergency braking systems starting in 2016/2018.

Lane Guard System (LGS)

The electronic lane guard system (LGS) constantly monitors the vehicle’s position in the lane. If the driver strays from the lane without activating the indicator, an acoustic warning sounds. Depending on the direction in which the driver has strayed, the loudspeaker on the left- or right-hand side emits a rumble-strip noise, which the driver intuitively understands. LGS increases the driver’s awareness of staying in the lane, thereby reducing certain hazardous situations.

MADE FOR PERFORMANCE

Fitting bodies is easy, the frame is clearly laid out, it offers great payload and majestic driving characteristics. The new MAN TGX convinces through its great attention paid to even the smallest of details.

It comes as a 4×2, 6×2 or 6×4 semitrailer tractor and as a 6×4 and 8×4-4 chassis with different wheelbases, variable front-axle loads and various fifth-wheel coupling heights for Euro semitrailers and large-capacity semitrailers. Optionally, the new MAN TGX can be obtained as a 4×2 or 6×2 chassis with drive axle or trailing axle version. The stable, rigid and torsion-resistant frame with no protruding parts ensures optimum body compatibility. The close-knit matrix of holes means that later additions and conversions can be made easily

Full air suspension with well-spaced air-suspension gaiters provides optimum road safety and ride comfort for the 4×2, 6×2-2 and 6×2-4 chassis. On vehicles with high body centres of gravity, the air-damper system (LDS) delivers superlative ride stability, i.e. road holding. The 6×4 chassis is also available with full-leaf suspension or with leaf-air suspension. The electronic air suspension control, ECAS, allows you to lower the chassis of the new MAN TGX by 90 mm or to raise it by 190 mm. The memory function makes it possible to set two freely definable heights at any time, at the touch of a button.

The MAN TGX with MAN D38 engine can also handle very heavy traction assignments. With engine power ratings of 397 kW (540 hp) to 471 kW (640 hp), it is ideally suited for tasks involving high gross train weights, examples being the transporting of construction vehicles, heavy-duty tipper trucks and the towing of heavy loads.
