Sinotruk T5G truck launched

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - News -

THE Sinotruk T5G medium and heavy-duty truck was in­tro­duced into the lo­cal mar­ket by Sen­dok Group re­cently.

The chas­sis cab price of Sinotruk T5G is RM208,000.

The T5G has a gross ve­hi­cle weight of 18,000kg and is part of the Sinotruk T-se­ries, which was de­vel­oped by Sinotruk and Euro­pean com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle man­u­fac­turer MAN Truck and Bus.

Billed as pro­vid­ing out­stand­ing per­for­mance, dura­bil­ity, high safety stan­dards and cost ef­fi­ciency, the T5G has a 6.9-litre Euro III ad­vanced MAN MC07 en­gine, pro­duc­ing 310hp at 2,300rpm and torque of 1,230Nm at 1,200 to 1,800rpm.

It uses a nine-speed ZF trans­mis­sion and is rated with an av­er­age fuel con­sump­tion of 3.5km per litre.

The T5G uses the MAN TGS nar­row cab de­sign which meets Eu­rope’s ECE R29 safety stan­dard for truck cab strength.

Its wide cabin de­sign pro­vides a clear view of the road, and driv­ing com­fort is due to its four-point pneu­matic cab sus­pen­sion and air sus­pen­sion seats.

The win­ner of 2.5-litre en­gine cat­e­gory was Jerry Wan Jok who trav­elled 208km with only 10.62 litre of diesel.

Run­ner-up was Anuwar Payakun and Dayang Ham­diah Abang Hadari was in third place.

There is am­ple stor­age space, and for rest breaks, the T5G’s berth width is up to 750mm which is bet­ter than the typ­i­cal cab berth width of 500mm.

A sun­roof and elec­tric air-con­di­tion­ing with a large fil­ter en­sures cabin air qual­ity and ven­ti­la­tion.

Sinotruk ve­hi­cles come with twoyear or 200,000km war­ranty (which­ever comes first ) for prime movers, one-year or 100,000km war­ranty for mixer and cargo trucks, and one-year or 60,000km war­ranty (which­ever comes first) for tip­per trucks.

For the 3.0-litre en­gine cat­e­gory, Ng Quek Peng was the win­ner, us­ing only 12.33 litres of diesel to com­plete the chal­lenge.

Ira Be­landa was run­ner-up and Liew Kwong Vun was in third place.

The Dura-Miles Chal­lenge 2017 drew in a long con­voy of par­tic­i­pants.
