The new stars of the Iveco heavy range at IAA 2012

On the occasion of the 64th International Commercial Vehicle Show (IAA) in Hanover, from 20 to 27 September 2012, Iveco presents the new stars of its heavy-duty range: the new STRALIS and the new Trakker.

The new STRALIS in the spotlight

After its launch on July 1, the new STRALIS debuts before a large international audience, with two important novelties concerning the choice of Euro VI engines offered. The vehicle, which is the Iveco’s answer to the needs of today’s professional transport, is enhanced by the new powerful Cursor 9 with 400 HP and 1700 Nm, a particularly competitive choice for fuel transport applications and the Cursor 11 with 480 HP and 2250 Nm, which offers the same performance as a 13-litre engine, combined with significant advantages in terms of weight and fuel consumption.

With the new STRALIS, Iveco reinforces its customer-oriented strategy, reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) of up to 4% for long haulage missions. The vehicle is characterised by highly innovative new engine technology,  the patented FPT Industrial system, Hi-eSCR, which meets the Euro VI regulations without compromising fuel efficiency.
An additional novelty for 2012, displayed in Hanover, is the STRALIS LNG Natural Power version, a vehicle powered by liquefied natural gas that is ideally suited to medium-range distribution and night-time delivery applications, which starting this year, has been marketed all over Europe.

STRALIS Emotional: a novelty “super-equipped”

One of the new additions to the heavy vehicle range presented by Iveco is the STRALIS “Emotional”, a vehicle offering a huge choice of additional accessories to create a pleasant driving environment and an area of complete relaxation on board. These factors contribute to increased productivity and vehicle safety.

The new Trakker: a redesigned cab and improved comfort

In order to complete the heavy-duty range renewal, Iveco presents, in its world premiere, the New Trakker, an off-road construction site vehicle, with an entirely renewed cab. The cab has been conceived to enhance driving comfort and life on board, factors already considered to be fundamental for productivity and safety.

The new Trakker operates on impracticable uneven terrain, relying on its Cursor engines (8 and 13 Euro V), which ensure power and resistance over years for a vehicle that must be operative 365 days per year. The new Trakker significantly increases productivity, offering the comfort of a road vehicle during construction site and off-road missions.

Trakker Dakar

Iveco is also exhibiting the Trakker, driven by the champion Miki Biasion,  which competed at the 2012 Dakar Rally. Recently the vehicle won first place in another international race, the 29th Baja España-Aragón, which is the sixth competition in the world championship Rallyes Tout Terrain.
