According to the company, the new vehicle is powered by the company’s 200HP engine with iGen6 technology which delivers better fluid efficiency and will be available in cowl and 3 cabin options: N Cab, U cab, M cab. The N cabin comes with a suspended cab with dampers, suspended driver seat, anti-roll bar in the front, good storage spaces, full metal front fascia, music system, AC & HVAC options.

The new product can be operated as 25.5 T (6x2) truck with the lift axle down (offering payload closer to regular 6x2 MAV truck) and a 4x2 truck (18.5T GVW) with lift axle up ((lower fuel and operating cost similar to 4x2) during light load/partial load/return empty, the company said.
