International truck of the year prepares for CV Show 27 February 2013

A trio of International Truck Of The Year-winning Stralis tractor units will take pride of place on Iveco's stand at the upcoming CV Show.

They will be joined by a static display of FPT Industrial's SCR-only (selective catalytic reduction) Euro 6 engine.

The feature vehicle will be a Euro 6 example of Iveco's new long-haul Stralis Hi-Way 4x2 tractor unit – the first of its kind to arrive in the UK and making its public debut at the NEC.

The truck will be positioned alongside a pair of EEV-rated Stralis trucks, including a 6x2 Stralis Hi-Way powered by a 500bhp engine, and a 460bhp 6x2 Stralis Hi-Road, the preferred model for distribution and fleet operations, as well as medium to long-haul domestic missions.

"This is a hugely important year for the truck market and we're expecting a lot of interest in our new Stralis range," states Nigel Emms, director of press and PR at Iveco UK.

"Only one manufacturer has the prestige of showcasing the International Truck of the Year 2013 on its stand, and we'll have three examples on display, plus a further two outside. We're preparing for a very busy exhibition."

Also making its official debut in the UK will be Iveco's new on/off-road Trakker Hi-Land, with a 410bhp 8x4 rigid finished in Dakar green factory colours, made famous by Petronas Team De Rooy in the last two Dakar Rallies.
