Optional ex­tras

Owner Driver - - Truck Technology -

Quar­anta says an optional pack fea­tures items such as hy­draulic re­tarder, lane de­par­ture warn­ing and driver at­ten­tion sup­port which monitors the driver’s level of at­ten­tion with var­i­ous fac­tors and plain warn­ings if his at­ten­tion ac­tu­ally drops or the ve­hi­cle changes lanes with­out in­di­cat­ing.

There’s also a tyre pres­sure mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem which Quar­anta says pro­vides real time in­for­ma­tion about the level of pres­sure in the tyres, warn­ing the driver of any pres­sure loss.

“Newly de­signed clus­ter with easy read­ing and high vis­i­bil­ity, and au­to­matic cli­mate con­trol are just some of the fea­tures of the cab,” Quar­anta con­tin­ues.

Add to that the Ive­con­nect mul­ti­me­dia sys­tem, re­vised steer­ing wheel-mounted con­trols and leather air sus­pended seats, and Iveco has come up with an im­pres­sive pack­age.

Bruce Healy be­lieves the new Stralis X-Way range will not only strengthen Iveco’s po­si­tion in the Aus­tralian truck mar­ket but con­sol­i­date Iveco’s lo­cal man­u­fac­tur­ing fu­ture.

“A com­bi­na­tion of ad­vanced safety fea­tures, cleaner and more ef­fi­cient Euro 6 en­gines, smart trans­mis­sions and a range of equip­ment to min­imise fuel use will make the Stralis X-Way a valu­able ad­di­tion to any fleet, from the owner-driver to larger multi­na­tion­als.”
