IVECO Trucks Australia Limited announces new truck models in the Stralis range with enhanced design and performance features.
The latest Stralis trucks feature new safety, styling and drivetrain features with some of the models incorporating advanced road safety technologies such as EBS with Brake Assistant Function, Electronic Stability Program (ESP) to regulate engine power and braking during a skid, and the Advanced Emergency Braking System in addition to the optional Daytime Running Lights.
Already renowned for its fuel efficiency, driver convenience and comfort, the latest Stralis is one of the most versatile trucks produced by IVECO. Offering maximum flexibility and versatility with a Gross Combination Mass (GCM) ranging from 36 to 90 tonnes, the Stralis is suitable for a variety of applications including single trailer, prime mover, tanker, car transport and refrigerated transport.
A standard feature in all Stralis trucks, the IVECO Cursor engine delivers power, high torque values and remarkable fuel economy. The standard transmission for the range is the ZF EuroTronic II automated gearbox, which comes in a 12- or 16-speed configuration. Both options use electronically controlled clutch engagement to automatically select the appropriate gearshift according to load, road speed and road incline. The transmission delivers optimum performance, advanced drivability and superior fuel economy, while the intelligent and adaptive controls allow the driver to focus on the road ahead.
The redesigned Stralis interior features improved ergonomics and comfort. The external restyling of the cab has focused on improving vehicle aerodynamics and fuel efficiency. New features in the cabin include a central grille, redesigned air deflectors and a new bumper dam design.
The Stralis offers a choice of three cab designs - Active Day (AD) for short haul metropolitan jobs; Active Time (AT) for medium to long haul jobs; and the flagship of the Stralis cab range, the Active Space Long (AS-L) designed for long haul jobs. All Stralis cab types include an ISRI 3-way adjustable air suspended seat and fully adjustable steering column. Safe and easy driver access is assured with the inclusion of wide opening doors, anti-skid steps and ergonomic grab handles. Multiple storage compartments and vehicle controls are all within easy reach.
The Stralis is a truly international vehicle, and continues to be produced to high manufacturing standards. The AD, AT and AS-L models are made at the IVECO Trucks Australia manufacturing facility in Dandenong, Victoria while the ATi range is manufactured in and fully imported from Madrid, Spain. The latest Australian Stralis is part of an award-winning range with the European Stralis having been awarded ‘International Truck of the Year’ for 2013 at the Hanover Truck Show.
All versions are now available in Australia through the IVECO Trucks Australia Dealer Network.
