IVECO Debuts 'T For Tough' T-WAY Heavy-Duty Off-Road Trucks

IVECO has launched its new T-WAY heavy off-road vehicle with the advertising campaign, “Treat It Bad.” The extremely rugged 40-tonne (44-U.S.-ton) off-highway truck is the successor to the company’s TRAKKER model with high reliability and payload capacity, as well as safety, digital connectivity, and driver comfort features.

“Today we open a new chapter in IVECO’s extraordinary off-road history with the launch of the IVECO T-WAY, heir to the throne of the TRAKKER as the ‘strongest of the heaviest’,” says IVECO Truck Business Unit Chief Operating Officer Luca Sra.

“We designed the IVECO T-WAY with the ambition to set new standards in robustness, reliability, efficiency, handling, body-fitting flexibility and connected services—and design, a must for an Italian brand,” says IVECO Brand President Thomas Hilse. “The name says it all: T for Tough!”

Traction & Stopping Power

IVECO touts the T-WAY’s sturdy steel chassis, as well as its 10-millimetre (0.39-inch)-thick frame which has a very high 177-kilonewton-metre (130,500-pound-force foot) rail bending moment. At the same time, the truck’s kerb weight is 325 kilograms (717 pounds) lighter than its predecessor’s. Bodybuilders can easily turn the T-WAY into a tipper truck, a mixer, a timber transporter, a gully cleaner, a crane and platform truck, and more.

IVECO says the new T-WAY has the widest selection of driveline options available, with two- to four-axle rigid and articulated models featuring either partial-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. A Hi-Traction hydrostatic drive system automatically provides extra hydraulic front-wheel traction on 6x4 rigid and articulated models with better fuel economy than an AWD configuration.

The T-WAY’s front axle has a 9-t (9.9-U.S.-t) maximum capacity, while its rear axle suspension provides better ground clearance and an improved departure angle for off-road performance. Air suspensions and both parabolic and semi-elliptic mechanical suspensions are available. Hub reduction comes standard on the rear axle. The T-WAY also includes an electronic braking system (EBS), and full disc brakes are available on PWD models.

Driving Assistance Available

The redesigned, ergonomic cabin of the T-WAY comes in AD short cab and AT long sleeper cab versions with a selection of roof heights. There’s a new multi-function steering wheel, and also a standard Connectivity Box for telematics, remote fleet monitoring, and predictive maintenance.

The T-WAY’s new Hi-Mux electric/electronic architecture supports the latest control systems, according to IVECO. New Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) are available as options.

One Smart Transmission

IVECO offers the T-WAY with a 12.9-litre Cursor 13 engine with up to 510 horsepower (380 kilowatts), or a fuel-efficient 8.7-L Cursor 9 engine starting at 340 HP (254 kW). Both engines comply with Euro VI emissions standards. In addition, a new sandwich PTO produces up to 2,300 newton-metres (1,700 pounds-foot) of torque.

The T-WAY comes with a 12- or 16-speed Hi-Tronix automated gearbox with various assistive features. Its Hill Holder function helps the truck start moving on steep grades, while its Rocking Mode seeks to regain traction on a slippery surface. A hydrostatic Creeping Mode enables very slow-speed travel. The Hi-Tronix transmission also includes an Off-road Mode and four reverse gears.

For highway travel, the IVECO Hi-Cruise system increases the efficiency of the transmission to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. The system includes predictive gear shifting, predictive cruise control, and a downhill eco-roll function that leverages the inertia of the truck.

Find The Right IVECO

The T-Way completes IVECO’s Way Range, which includes the on-road S-WAY and S-WAY Natural Power gas-powered trucks and the X-WAY, which marries on-road efficiency with last-mile off-road capability.
