Success in New Zealand means the Trakker 4x4 has headed across the ditch

 

Italian truck maker Iveco has announced the launch of an 18-tonne GVM Trakker 4x4 variant, taking the mantle as the company’s largest 4x4 model.

Having previously only been available in 6x6 variants, the new heavy-duty off-road Trakker 360AD features a Cursor 8 engine, a ZF 16-speed manual transmission, permanent 4x4 operation and triple differential locks (front, centre and rear).

The 7.8-litre 6-cylinder engine offers 265kW (360hp) and 1500Nm of torque.

Iveco says the Trakker meets the Euro 5 emissions standard. A Eurotronic 12-speed automated transmission is available as an option.

Targeting customers in the construction, mining and exploration, agricultural and emergency service fields, Iveco product spokesman Joel Read says the new 4x4 model "fills a niche between the Eurocargo 4x4 and the larger Trakker 6x6."

"While there are similarities in applications the Trakker 4x4 and 6x6 models are targeted at, we’re finding that not all customers require a 33-tonne GVM off-road vehicle," he says.

"The Trakker 4x4 has been available in New Zealand for some time and was well received there, and with its stellar off-road ability we think it will develop a strong following in Australia as well."

The Trakker is fitted with an anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic brakeforce limitation (EBL), and anti-skid regulator (ASR).

Iveco says the model is available at its dealerships. The company has released a video to accompany the launch of the 4x4 Trakker in Australia.
