The pride of the pack for the construction industry




Extreme power. Extreme durability. Extreme reliability. This X stands for “eXtreme”. The MAN XLION equipment packages use this winning formula to deliver peak performance in the long-haul, distribution, and construction transport segments.


MAN is demonstrating this with an extremely powerful lion at the world’s leading trade fair in Munich: the MAN TGX 18.510 4×2 BLS tipper semitrailer – complete with eye-catching lion design on the sides of the cab. This special look can be ordered for all MAN XLION models on request.



The XLX cab also makes quite an impression. Its door, decorated with the XLION logo, opens to reveal a modern, ergonomic work place, tailor-made for truckers. “Our focus was on the driver when we made further improvements to the design of the cab’s interior, for example with the colour display and function-oriented switch layout”, comments Michael Makowsky, Senior Manager Sales & Marketing at MAN Truck & Bus SE.


And the special-edition MAN TGX model is also ideally equipped from a technical perspective.



Stronger engine for even more power


Increased performance is the key feature of the Euro 6 standard D26 engine. A part of MAN’s new family of engines, the Euro 6 standard D26 offers an extra 10 hp and 100 Nm more torque – meaning that it now generates 510 hp and achieves maximum torque of 2 600 Nm with the same, low fuel consumption.



Check-in for new assistants


The new safety and assistance systems provide more on-board support for drivers. MAN ComfortSteering actively reduces the burden by adapting the steering forces to the vehicle’s speed. “Add stands for easy manoeuvrability. Subtract stands for directional stability at high speeds,” explains Michael Makowsky.



The system also provides the technical basis for the LaneReturnAssist (LRA) function. If the driver unintentionally drifts out of the lane without indicating, the LRA kicks in and guides the vehicle back into the marked lane.


“The exclusive equipment packages make each MAN XLION the perfect truck for our customers’ applications. In addition, there are special rates for selected MAN DigitalServices and repair and maintenance contracts,” Michael Makowsky adds.


Meet the cool MAN TGX XLION and the experts at bauma from 8 – 14 April 2019.
