MAZ has made a pro­to­type bon­neted truck MAZ 6440, which is un­par­al­leled in the CIS.

The pow­er­ful truck trac­tor can haul a MAZ 975830 semi­trailer to de­liver car­goes across long dis­tances. The ve­hi­cle tar­gets the home mar­ket as well as mar­kets of Rus­sia and the coun­tries that do not ap­ply re­stric­tions on the clear­ance length of eigh­teen-wheel­ers.

The truck is pow­ered by a 600hp Euro-4 en­gine de­signed by Minsk Mo­tor Plant and an Al­li­son 4500R gear­box for bet­ter re­li­a­bil­ity.

The bon­neted en­gine lo­ca­tion pro­vides bet­ter ac­cess to all com­po­nents, im­prov­ing the ve­hi­cle’s repara­bil­ity. The MAZ 6440 ve­hi­cle boasts cruise con­trol, a dig­i­tal tacho­graph, a pow­ered roof vent, air con­di­tion­ing, com­fort­able seats, a re­frig­er­a­tor, and two sleep­ing berths.

As many as 75% com­po­nents of the ve­hi­cle are Be­larus-made. The truck MAZ 6440 will be un­der­go­ing sched­uled tests till the end of the year.
