IVECO launches off-road successor to Trakker04 May 2021

The new IVECO T-WAY introduces a new HI-TRONIX automated transmission with functions specifically developed for off-road mobility.

Features of interest include new rear disc brakes, heavy-duty rear suspension system for tandem axles, lower kerb weight and a host of features such as the HI-TRACTION system, together with digital services and high-comfort cab.

The model joins stablemates the IVECO S-WAY for full road transport and the IVECO X-WAY, intended for applications that are 90% on road.

The IVECO T-WAY steel chassis features a 10mm-thick frame, and with a rail bending moment at the top of the segment at 177 kNm. The front axle has a maximum capacity of up to 9 tonnes. Hub reduction on the rear axle is standard to maximise strength and performance. The new heavy-duty rear suspension system for tandem axles optimises vehicle weight and improves off-road performance with greater ground clearance and a better departure angle.

The IVECO T-WAY delivers power for traction and PTO via the 13-litre Cursor 13 engine, producing up to 503bhp, and exceeding the Trakker’s performance by 10 hp. For lighter-weight configurations, it is also available with the Cursor 9 engine. The new PTO line-up includes a new high-performance sandwich PTO that delivers up to 2,300 Nm torque.

The engines are coupled with the 12- and 16-speed HI-TRONIX automated gearbox, which now also features new functions specifically intended for off-road mobility. They include a Hill Holder function to help departure on steep slopes, Rocking Mode to help recover traction in slippery conditions, and Creep Mode for ultra-low speed control at idle. For the on-road sections of the mission, the IVECO HI-CRUISE system further enhances the transmission’s efficiency with features including predictive gear shifting, predictive cruise control and an eco-roll function that uses the vehicle’s inertia when travelling downhill.

In addition, the new braking system features EBS as standard, full disc brakes are available on PWD models, and new ADAS (Advanced Driving Assistance Systems) are available across the range.

The IVECO T-WAY also offers a new fuel-saving solution for missions that require an occasional all wheel drive (AWD) capability: the HI-TRACTION hydrostatic drive system for 6x4 rigid and articulated models. It operates at speeds of up to 25 km/h and is automatically activated to provide additional hydraulic front-wheel traction when needed. It delivers significant benefits in terms of fuel consumption and payload compared to the AWD solution.

The kerb weight has been reduced by 325 kg compared to the Trakker with the new design of the tandem support on the rear axles, which is now a single-piece casting component.

The IVECO T-WAY features the best-in-class connectivity that is the hallmark of the WAY range through the standard Connectivity Box. The connectivity system provides telediagnostics and predictive maintenance.
