New Kenworth T403

New Kenworth T403

In 2010, the new model T403 came to replace T402, which has been producing only for 1 and a half year. Developed as a purpose built aerodynamic solution for intrastate and interstate distribution in single trailer, some vocational 19m B-Double and rigid applications, the T403 utilises a set back front axle and optimal bumper to back of cab dimension. The 2011 model range received the new design. A grille that’s now bigger, bolder and from which Kenworth’s design DNA now flows more freely around a wider, more contoured engine compartment, more muscular wheel arches and more streamlined side fairings. 

New Australian cab over Kenworth K200

New Australian cab over Kenworth K200

While the Kenworth K108 might be the current king of the road in terms of linehaul operations, there is a new challenger to the throne from within Kenworth’s ranks. The new K200, revealed exclusively to transport journalists in Alice Springs last week before its public launch, builds on the core elements of the K108 and offers them in a refined package. While the new model does not go on sale until April 1 next year – when the K108 will be retired – Kenworth is taking the opportunity to launch the new model now, with fleet testing of ‘seed models’ beginning in September. The new cab over, complete with Cummins ISX engine and a choice of Eaton manual or the Ultrashift Plus auto transmission, is rated to over 600 horsepower, yet is able to meet the stringent new ADR 80/03 emission regulations. While the model on display at Alice Springs retains the infamous ‘up and across’ entry to the cab, sales and marketing manager Andrew Hadjikakou says the final version will “have some changes” in this area, with rumours persisting of swing out steps similar to the Freightliner Argosy.

While the basic shape is similar to the K108, in reality the new model is 50mm higher, with the extra space accommodating a refined engine cooling package to deal with the demands of ADR 80/03. Under the skin is a new charge air cooler, moulded fan shroud and a nine-blade fan, all working on reducing heat stress on the engine, while revised auxiliary coolers are relocated to reduce shadowing, where airflow is prevented from reaching the coolers. Drivers will also appreciate the additional heat and noise shielding between the cab floor and the engine bay, which is expected to make the K200 the quietest Kenworth cab over model to roll off the production line. Driver comfort is also more advanced than ever before, with a greater use of soft plush vinyl and recessed panels, as well as a fresh contemporary range of new trim colours, including Shiraz and charcoal. The new cab floor is almost flat, with a lower engine tunnel. The gearshift has a wider gate for easier shifts. A fold-away gear lever allows easy access to the sleeper area, as well as the two 30 litre fridges or storage drawers mounted under the bunk.

Mitsubishi Fuso Introduces 8-Ton Fighter

After the renewing of 11 and 14.5-ton models Fighter, the Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation updates 8-ton version. The new Fighter incorporates the 6M60 engine (in-line six cylinder, 7.5-liter) with a new 162 kW (220 PS) / 2200 rpm rating. Due to the enhanced combustion efficiency of the Fighter’s engine unit and the environmentally-friendly BlueTec® emissions reduction system, the new Fighter achieves significant reductions of particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide. The 6-speed INOMAT-II has been improved to reduce gear-change time and alleviate gear-change shock, which leads to smooth driving and enhance comfort.

New for Australian Mack’s 2011 generation

New for Australian Mack’s 2011 generation

Mack Trucks Australia has announced that its most popular models will, in 2011, offer more power and torque, improved fuel economy and longer service intervals. In addition, Mack says all models will get a host of cab refinements. In addition to stronger, cooler running engines, Mack says it will introduce its home- grown automated manual transmission, the mDRIVE; and a new generation of tough Mack drive axles. Mack Trucks says its 2011 solution to ADR80/03 introduces Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), to clean exhaust gases to the best level ever, while providing the double whammy benefit of increasing power and torque in the Metro-Liner, Granite and Trident range. SCR-equipped Mack trucks will use AdBlue in the SCR process.

The 12-speed, two-pedal transmission will be available exclusively with the Granite and Trident models, which also have the option of Mack’s 150/151 tandem drive axles. These 20 tonne-rated axles come standard with driver controlled diff locks. For the 2011 Metro-Liner, Mack are offering the Cummins ISL SCR engine as standard, with various power ratings up to 400hp. The Metroliner also comes with the latest generation Allison automatic transmission. Buyers of Mack’s new Titan with have the choice of 550 or 600hp Cummins ISX / Signature engines, which comply with ADR80/03 through the use of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), which involves the addition of a locally engineered Cummins (Diesel) Particulate Filter (CPF).
