Home Manufacturing & Processing Automotive All-new 6x4 truck tractor unveiled

FUSO Trucks, a brand of Daimler Truck Southern Africa (DTSA), accentuated its unrelenting commitment to the region as a trendsetter and versatile all-rounder with the market launch of its all-new Fuso TV33-400S 6×4 truck tractor. Proudly assembled at its well-established manufacturing plant in East London, it has been locally tested under the toughest operating conditions. The new product offers a truckload of industry-leading standard features for short to medium haul, distribution, and construction. It can be purchased with a fully-fledged value chain offering which includes; Service and Maintenance Contracts, and in-house tailor-made finance solutions through Daimler Truck Financial Services (DTFS).

The new Fuso TV33-400S 6×4 truck tractor is robust, powerful, and built with a strong focus on safety, driver comfort, fuel efficiency, and productivity.

Maretha Gerber, Vice President: Sales and Marketing Daimler Truck Southern Africa said, “Southern Africa remains a focus market for Fuso Trucks and with the launch of this new truck, we are confident that it will move us into a stronger position across all major segments.”

Improved fuel efficiency and productivity

One of the prime considerations in the all-new FUSO TV33-400S 6×4 truck tractor is maximum torque from low rpm, which provides the right power and control to pull goods from a standstill – while at the same time providing the driver with enough torque to keep the actual speed and optimised vehicle acceleration, contributing to major savings on fuel.

The new truck also comes standard with an automated manual transmission, a forward-thinking feature that continues to set the bar high in the industry, thanks to its positive impact on fuel consumption, vehicle performance, safety, and driver comfort.

Further to this, driving in the new model is also facilitated by an improved cruise control system and a speed limiter, which allow the driver to maintain constant and fuel-saving speed.

Enhanced safety features

The truck is fully equipped with an ABS air brake system and auxiliary exhaust brake, providing excellent support for safe driving.

Additionally, the new vehicle has further enhanced safety through the design of the cab as it proudly complies with the most stringent ECE R29 version cab strength regulations that involve two cab tests – front impact, static roof strength and an optional impact test on the cab’s rear wall.

Aerodynamic cab, designed for tough conditions

The new model offers outstanding fuel consumption through its finely crafted aerodynamic cab design with the aim of minimising air drag.

Visibility on the new truck has also been enhanced, owing to the distinctively looking dual chamber headlamp with LED daytime running light.

Cab interior, built with the driver in mind

Cab interior design has always been one of Fuso Trucks’ key focus areas to meet the driver’s increasing needs. Its ergonomically designed interiors and features enhance driving pleasure and considerably reduce fatigue.

A prime example is the intelligent instrument cluster – a multi-information display. This exceptional feature provides useful information like coolant temp, ambient temp, engine run hours, avg speed, fuel efficiency DTE, and gear indicator.

Exceptional service intervals and warranty tailored to your business

The new truck offers service intervals and warranty tailored to your business, and this includes; engine oil change at 50,000 kilometres or 1000 hours, coolant change approximately on 100,000 kilometres or 12 months, transmission oil change on 150,000 kilometres, differential oil change on 150,000 kilometres, and warranty at 4 years or 300,000 kilometres.
