The launch of the New Trucks Generation range in Qatar is part of the regional introduction of the trucks in Middle East region.

Great efficiency & economy

The engine range remains robust, reliable and efficient as before. It will continue to deliver consistent high-performance over long-duty cycles. MAN is the only truck maker to offer engines that conform to emission norms ranging from Euro 2 to 4, 5 and 6d, depending upon the selected model. Substantial improvements on the product, and in the areas of maintenance and service can reduce service life costs. These trucks also offer significant pay- load advantages for weight-sensitive application sectors.

Strong partner – competent and personal partnership

Partnership has been key to MAN’s successes, and its importer partners have done a commendable job of achieving customer satisfaction. The New TG Range also follows a product logic, which is oriented towards the application profile. This logic allows for a new MAN TGX, TGS, TGM or TGL to be put together and fits the exact transport task, using flexible configuration options.

Optimised uptime – utmost availability over the entire service life 

The operational efficiency of a truck is largely dependent on the parameter of reliability and how easily it fulfils its task, each day. MAN endeavors to make the tried and tested even better with the New TG Range. These trucks will perform just as before as the powertrain retains its characteristics from the previous generation. The new simplified and powerful electronic architecture offers increased support to the trucks' functionalities, making the New MAN Truck Generation fit for the future.

Excellent driver fit – the driver is the focus

In order to optimise the work place in the truck, performance and motivation need to be placed at the forefront. The new MAN Truck Generation sets industry standards, offering premium user-friendly features, optimum ergonomics, and operation, which is more intuitive and reliable. There is also the aspect of optimum space – a well-thought-out storage concept and perfect sleeping comfort. The ultimate achievement is a driver who is well rested, comfortable and alert at all times, which leads to safer and more efficient operations each time. MAN ProfiDrive offers additional targeted and practice-oriented training to help drivers with more efficient and safer driving methods.

The new MAN TGX is the International Truck of the Year 2021

In addition to its driving comfort, the driver's workplace impressed the jury of the International Truck of the Year. Its clearly arranged, fully digital display instruments, intuitively operable driving and multimedia functions incorporated into the new, generously adjustable multifunction steering wheel, and the innovative, distraction-free rotary pushbutton control function of the MAN SmartSelect system are stand-out features. Moreover, the jurors were just as positive about the living conditions in the new driver's cab as the high level of safety on offer. Last but not least, the new MAN TGX made a particularly trendsetting impression thanks to the high degree of connectivity provided by its electronic architecture, which is the first-of-its kind in the commercial vehicle sector.
