At the IAA 2016 in Hannover the ‘International Truck of the Year 2017’ is going to be appointed. Now this year the jury has three trucks that are nominated. The nominees are: The new Iveco XP and NP trucks, The Mercedes-Benz Actros ‘Powerbooster’ with its new engine generation and the new Scania R- and S- series.
Now Iveco won the award for 2016 with the EuroCargo, so the chances for the XP and NP models are not very good. The Mercedes-Benz with its renewed engines doesn’t seem all that new to me and that makes it realy easy. If you ask me, and I know you don’t, it is going to be the new Scania R- and S- series. Next week we will know for shure but I think Scania can start ordering the transfers to put on the trucks at the IAA show.
