Great efficiency and economy
The engine range remains robust, reliable and efficient as before. It will continue to deliver consistent high-performance over long duty cycles. Substantial improvements on the product, and in the areas of maintenance & service can reduce service life costs. These trucks also offer significant payload 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 to achieve customer satisfaction. The New TG Range also follows a product logic, which is oriented towards the application profile.

The ACC with stop-and-go function automatically regulates the speed and the distance to traffic ahead. It retains the required speed without the driver’s having to actuate the accelerator. The vehicle is automatically braked to a standstill and after brief stops moves off again automatically
