Eicher Pro 6037 - Technology Meets Productivity
Published On Feb 26, 2016
Volvo Eicher Commercial Vehicles (VECV) is one of the leading commercial vehicle manufactures in India with trucks for every application in its quiver. The recently concluded Auto Expo 2016 was also used as a platform by the company to launch a few new trucks and Pro 6037 is one of them.
The Pro range of trucks is already famous among buyers for its robustness, high performance, heavy load capacity and low maintenance. And with this all new Pro 6037, VECV has gone one step up with not only performance but with technology as well to ensure the maximum productivity.
Here is a quick look at what Pro 6037 has got:
Pumped up with the brand’s global VEDX5 5.0 Liter 4-Cylinder engine, Pro 6037 churns out best in class 210 hp power @ 2,200 rpm and a peak torque of 825 Nm @ 1,200 - 1,600 rpm and that too with unmatched fuel efficiency. This powerhouse is developed to meet the frugal demands of transporters while offering ecstatic performance over a wide rpm range alongside Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of 37,000 kg.
VECV has also paired with up the engine with a few frills like Engine Management System (EMS 3.0) courtesy extended by Volvo group to maintain balance among load, fuel efficiency and emission control. Apart from this, there is advanced Fuel Injection Equipment (FIE) for optimum fuel pressure and Fuel Coaching interface to help driver hit the sweet spot of rpm range.
Ergonomic Cabin Features
Ensuring that Eicher trucks become synonym of comfort and leisure over long and exhausting road trips, Pro 6037 has been equipped with state-of-the-art comfort features with ergonomic design. There is provision for 4-speed AC blower, 5-Vent air grille, power windows for both driver & co-driver, in-built music system, fully suspended cabin, 8-way adjustable driver seat and revamped instrument cluster.
However, the highlights of the cabin are Intelligent Driver Information System (IDIS) and Engine Protection System (EPS). While IDIS is responsible for feeding live information to driver about different operational parameters and a diagnostic check, EPS helps engine from getting into low situations like low oil pressure, high coolant temperature and fuel leakage.
Unmatched Safety Measures
Driving a vehicle as heavy as a truck could be trick sometimes and can land occupants into life threatening conditions. Eicher, on the other hand has worked brilliantly on this aspect and has offered features like Cruise Control, reliable parabolic suspension, heavy duty chassis, durable frame and tubeless tyres for better grip on the road. The seat-belts are also capable of getting tighter around the passengers in required situations.
With technology fast becoming the need of today’s world whatever the niche is, road transportation too is getting a glimmer of it. At Auto Expo 2016 Eicher demoed its technological solutions along with its products and one of them is Eicher Live.
The system keeps an eye on the statistics part of the trips that include fuel consumption, trip time, breakdown and others for fleet owners so that they could analysis their numbers in a better way to maximize the profit.
Amid the ups and downs VECV has been able to stay afloat and the recent months have been quite fruitful from the sales perspective. Now, with Pro 6037 launch and its availability in different body types (FSD, HSD, CBC) making the Eicher truck suitable for different applications, the future looks glorious and bright for the brand.
