MAN is presenting the new D15 engine platform later this year. The nine liter 400 Hp engine is replacing the current D20. The new D15 is smaller, lighter and has less swept volume. That seems like another step towards less CO2 emissions. The D15 engine is already on the market in MAN busses and coaches.
Other, non confirmed news is that MAN seems to be testing the Scania 16 litre V8 with 730 Hp for heavy transport purposes. It could well be that MAN is going to sell the famous V8 in the heavy transport trucks. That would make sense, because for normal road transport the 16 litres V8 is a bit oversized. But again, this is just a rumour.
News about the new cab of MAN keeps dripping. The new dashboard should look like the previous Scania models. On the photo you can see what we mean by that. It is a bit ‘cockpit shaped’ in stead of the straight dashboard of MAN that we know. Also the roof is new. This is the highroof version in combination with the low windscreen.
The engine news of MAN is espected for the IAA 2018. The new generation of cabs is planned for 2019 for as far as we know.
