The Trakker, from Italian manufacturer IVECO, is a two-, three-, or four-axle truck ready for a variety of quarry and construction applications. More recently known as the New Trakker, the latest iteration ended up winning the grueling Dakar Rally in 2012. Today, it’s a common sight on the road as a rigid truck or tractor unit, with or without all-wheel drive, in tipper, hook loader, grab loader, car transporter, beavertail, and many more configurations.

Engine & Drivetrain Options

The versatile Trakker comes in 4x4, 6x4, 6x6, and 8x4 axle configurations. The 6x4 version is available in tractor or rigid form. The Trakker’s high-yield-strength steel frame comes in lightweight 7.7-millimetre or heavy-duty 10-mm thicknesses. Its suspension uses parabolic or semi-elliptical leaf springs, with air suspension available on the three- and four-axle models.


IVECO equips the truck with FPT Industrial’s Cursor inline six-cylinder turbocharged engine with common-rail injection. The Trakker complies with Euro VI emissions standards using HI-SCR (selective catalytic reduction) and a diesel particulate filter, eschewing exhaust gas recirculation to reduce weight. The FPT Cursor engines come in 9- and 13-litre variants ranging from 330 to 500 horsepower (246 to 372 kilowatts). The Cursor 9 is available in 330-, 360-, and 400-hp (243-, 265-, and 294-kW) steps, while the Cursor 13 comes in 410-, 450-, and 500-hp (302-, 331-, and 368-kW) versions. The 400-hp Cursor 9 and the 500-hp Cursor 13 employ a variable-geometry turbo for low-end torque, while the lower-horsepower editions use a waste gate turbocharger.

Transmissions for the Trakker include manual gearboxes with “single H” control or EUROTRONIC 12- and 16- speed automated transmissions with steering column-mounted shift. Trucks without all-wheel drive have disc brakes up front, while AWD Trakkers use front drums. The brakes are electronically controlled by antilock and EBL (Electronic Braking Limitation) systems; ASR (anti-slip regulation) traction control is available as an option. To augment the Cursor engine’s INTARDER system, the Trakker has a new exhaust flap to improve engine braking by 25%.

Comfort & Connection

The Trakker comes with either the HI-LAND day cab/short cab with a standard roof or the HI-TRACK sleeper cab/long cab with a low or high roof. The cab is sound-insulated for a quiet interior and features an efficient HVAC system for driver comfort. Visibility is enhanced by well-placed mirrors and built-in fog lamps. For rough environments, the Trakker’s headlamp protection guards can be joined by an optional steel radiator guard.


On the technological side, IVECO’s Iveconnect system provides driver aids, navigation, and infotainment, along with wireless telematics for fleet management.
