After successfully launching in Australia late last year, the first group of IVECO’s new Stralis X-Way models have left the company’s Melbourne manufacturing facility, destined for IVECO dealerships around the country.
Included among the first vehicles are both prime mover and rigid variants, providing transport operators with a selection of models that produce fewer emissions, consume less fuel and are equipped with an extensive array of new safety features.
The new Stralis X-Way range considerably strengthens IVECO’s heavy market product offering in Australia, delivering technologically-advanced, Euro 6-powered models that have been extensively developed and tested for local conditions and applications. As an added bonus, IVECO’s Australian manufacturing presence allows customers greater flexibility for special builds on the production line to best suit their end application.
Included in the new model line-up are 6×4 AD/AT and 6×4 AS prime mover models as well as 6×4 AD/AT, 8×4 AD/AT and 8×4 AS rigids. The prime movers feature GVMs of 25 tonnes and GCMs of 45 tonnes while the rigids range between 25 and 30 tonnes GVM and 40 to 45 tonnes GCM (higher GCMs available on application).
Cabin options include a ‘Day’, ‘Sleeper’ and ‘Active Space Sleeper’ for prime movers and rigid models while wheelbase options are 3900 and 4200mm for the prime movers and 5720, 5800, 6300 and 6500mm depending on the rigid model selected.
Powering the vehicles are new IVECO Cursor 9, 11 and 13 common rail engines with outputs ranging from 310 hp and 1300 Nm for the entry level Cursor 9 to 510 hp and 2300 Nm for the Cursor 13.
The engines meet stringent Euro 6 emissions levels through the use of IVECO’s unique Hi-eSCR system, which does not require driver intervention.
Complementing the engines is IVECO’s new 12-speed HiTroniX automated transmission, a direct drive unit that delivers fast gear changes while more efficiently selecting the correct ratio for the conditions.
Along with its environmental performance and renewed efficiency, the new Stralis X-Way is amongst the heavy segment leaders is in the area of safety.
Standard equipment on all models is an Electronic Braking System (EBS) with Brake Assistance System (BAS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Hill Holder, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), and daytime running lights
Optional equipment includes a hydraulic retarder, Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Driver Attention Support (DAS), Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and Bi-Xenon headlamps.
