Commercial Vehicle - - COVER STORY -

The strong and ver­sa­tile MCV seg­ment con­tin­ues to grow. It is emerg­ing as a seg­ment that ad­dresses the myr­iad needs of the mar­ket, be it a rigid truck tip­per or a spe­cial ap­pli­ca­tion truck. Ca­pa­ble of ad­dress­ing a di­verse range of ap­pli­ca­tions and cus­tomer re­quire­ments, the Eicher Pro 6025 drew at­ten­tion due to its mod­ern con­struc­tion and an abil­ity to de­liver. A medium seg­ment cargo car­rier, the Eicher Pro 6025 is in­dica­tive of how CV mak­ers are striv­ing to ad­dress the chang­ing needs of the mar­ket. Pow­ered by a 180 hp, 5.1-litre engine that pro­duces a peak torque of 750 Nm at 1200-1600 rpm, the Eicher Pro 6025 fea­tures four-point sus­pended cabin, an engine pro­tec­tion sys­tem, an in­tel­li­gent driver in­for­ma­tion sys­tem and cruise con­trol. Trans­mis­sion is a six-speed unit, and the brakes are pneu­matic in na­ture. With a 25-tonne GVW, the Pro 6025 is ef­fi­cient, and of­fers a high earn­ing po­ten­tial.
