Iveco New Zealand launched its new S-Way and T-Way model ranges yesterday. It was the region’s first reveal of the new product.

Michael May, managing director Iveco Australia and New Zealand, says the S-Way and T-Way are a big part of the brand’s growth plans in the region.

“Not only is it the best-looking heavy truck in the market, but it’s leading the way with a new level of safety and performance enhancement. We also focussed on comfort, it’s all about the driver,” he says.

The S-Way will be available in 4×2, 6×2, 6×4, 8×4 and, for the first time, 10×4 configurations, powered by the Cursor 9, Cursor 11 and Cursor 13 range of engines. Power ratings include 265kW (360hp)/1650Nm, 338kW (460hp)/2150Nm, and 425kW (570hp)/2500Nm. All are coupled to ZF transmissions.

“We’ve kept the range quite simplistic, the combination of driveline is a winner,” says Pieter Theron, medium and heavy truck sales executive, Iveco New Zealand.

The new T-Way is offered in 4×4, 6×6, 6×4 and 8×4 configurations, with power options including the 268kW (360hp), 305kW (410hp), 335kW (450hp) and 380kW (510hp).

“The Trakker was a winner for us in the South Island, hopefully we can gain more market share in the North Island with the T-Way,” says Theron. “The T-Way is suitable for severe off road applications and the 410hp model is a benchmark in this sector.”

May adds: “Importantly, the combined package brings these trucks up to the next level.”

In this regard, the range offers a host of standard features, including:

  • Meets Euro-6E emissions via Hi-SCR, which requires vehicle’s to be 100% emissions compliant from cold start.
  • Multi-piece hybrid front bumper, which comprises plastic and steel components and reduces the cost of ownership and is easy to repair.
  • Meets the latest European safety requirements, with technology such as adaptive cruise and full autonomous emergency braking.
  • A driver assessment system that can be accessed via the Iveco mobile app.
  • LED lights across the range, with cornering headlights.
  • Eco-Roll and Eco Fleet mode, which allows the vehicle to be locked in its most fuel efficient mode.
  • GPS Predictive Drive, which assess the road ahead and adapts the drivetrain for optimal fuel consumption.
  • High-efficiency mirror design and slim, high-efficiency A-pillar reduces wind noise and keeps driver and passenger windows clean, while increasing visibility.
  • Standard fridge and freezers, with interior layout focussed on the driver and connectivity for the driver.

All S-Way models for on-road applications have a 75,000km or 1500hour/12-month service interval. For off-road applications a shorter interval of 25,000km or 500 hours applies. Comprehensive service and maintenance contracts are available and Iveco can offer those up to seven years or 1,000,000km.
