Scania Unveils New Urban Tipper with Bolstered Safety Standard
Published On Apr 06, 2016
Recently, Scania unveiled a new Urban Tipper model for the American market, which was designed to set a new standard in city safety. The company had showcased the vehicle at the Clocs exhibition, held at ExCel London recently. The company believes that the new machine would help to strengthen all fields of the drive, including efficiency.
Unlike the usual 8x4 wheelplan that is incorporated in most of the models, this new machine comes with a 8x2x6 configuration. This new set-up would bring a more reliable chassis framework, with three axles for a more robust support in all the vehicle's activities. A full air-based suspension system is also present for enhanced stability on the roads. Docked within the hood, the massive machine has a SCR-only 410 hpw engine designed to meet Euro 6 standards. The engine's power is channelled through Scania's Opticruise transmission.
As for the craft and body dynamics, the company has given the new model a lightweight 'Wilcox' body structure that is supposedly meant to meet the requirements of all drive conditions. An array of safety features help to solidify the experience, and this ranges from conventional and well-known systems such as electronic stability program (ESP), to more advanced facilities such as advanced emergency braking (AEB) and a lane departure warning (LDW). A sophisticated camera monitoring system is also integrated within the vehicle, working to boost overall security. The company has set the cabin up with a unique passenger vision door that enhances visibility for the driver, providing a clearer sight of the road conditions directly upfront.
