Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation has unveiled a new addition to the heavy-duty Shogun line-up in Australia, the Shogun 510.

The model is also set to launch in New Zealand.

The new Shogun model is available in Australia as a 6×4 prime mover or rigid truck for intra-hub transportation needs. With a gross combination mass of 63 tonnes, 380kW (510hp) and 2500Nm, the truck is capable of hauling a single or double trailer.

The performance of the truck makes it the most powerful Euro-6-compliant heavy-duty truck delivered to the Australian market from a Japanese brand.

MFTBC implemented extensive testing for the Shogun 510 during the development phase in order to ensure compatibility with local needs. The vehicle underwent outdoor testing in the Australian outback at the prototype stage, climate testing in South Africa, and another round pre-production testing both in Australia and New Zealand.
