The unveiling of the all-new FUSO TV33-400S 6x4 truck tractor.

FUSO Trucks, a brand of Daimler Truck Southern Africa (DTSA) has expanded its product portfolio in the local market with the launch of the all-new FUSO TV33-400S 6×4 truck tractor.

Assembled at its manufacturing plant in East London and locally tested under tough operating conditions, the new product offers a truckload of features for short to medium haul, distribution, and construction.

Speaking at the launch function, Maretha Gerber, Vice President: Sales and Marketing Daimler Truck Southern Africa, said this new model has been built with a strong focus on safety, driver comfort, fuel efficiency, and productivity. Furthermore, it can be purchased with a fully-fledged value chain offering which includes; Service and Maintenance Contracts and in-house tailor-made finance solutions through Daimler Truck Financial Services (DTFS). 

“Southern Africa remains a focus market for FUSO Trucks and with the launch of this new truck, we are confident that it will move us into a stronger position across all major segments,” said Gerber.

One of the prime considerations in the all-new FUSO TV33-400S 6×4 truck tractor is maximum torque from low rpm, which provides the right power and control to pull goods from a standstill – while at the same time providing the driver with enough torque to keep the actual speed and optimised vehicle acceleration, contributing to major savings on fuel. 

Maretha Gerber, Vice President: Sales and Marketing Daimler Truck Southern Africa: “Southern Africa remains a focus market for FUSO Trucks and with the launch of this new truck, we are confident that it will move us into a stronger position across all major segments.”

The new truck also comes standard with an automated manual transmission, which has a positive impact on fuel consumption, vehicle performance, safety, and driver comfort. 

Driving is also facilitated by an improved cruise control system and a speed limiter, which allow the driver to maintain constant and fuel-saving speed – reducing driver fatigue and accidents, especially when driving on open highways. 

The all-new 6×4 truck tractor is built on a heavy-duty hub reduction rear axle with a differential lock to handle any kind of tasks thrown at it to meet a variety of business needs. 

Enhanced safety features

When it comes to standard safety features, the truck is fully equipped with an ABS air brake system and auxiliary exhaust brake, providing excellent support for safe driving. Additionally, the new vehicle has further enhanced safety through the design of the cab as it complies with the most stringent ECE R29 version cab strength regulations that involve two cab tests – front impact, static roof strength and an optional impact test on the cab’s rear wall. 

Visibility on the new truck has also been enhanced, owing to the distinctively looking dual chamber headlamp with LED daytime running light. The LED daytime running lights increases road presence and improves safety.

Further improvement on the truck is the electrical cab tilt which provides effortless operation – easy to lift and wide access to the engine bay for easy maintenance.  

All inspection and maintenance points are easy to find and access, thanks to the front service flap which ensures the vehicle is in optimal operating condition and on the road where it belongs. 

Cab interior design has always been one of FUSO Trucks’ key focus areas to meet the driver’s increasing needs. A prime example is the intelligent instrument cluster – a multi-information display. This feature provides useful information like coolant temp, ambient temp, engine running hours, average speed, fuel efficiency DTE, and gear indicator. A lot of attention to detail also went into the sleeper cab, which has been designed to make drivers feel at home while on the road, reduce driver fatigue and maximise productivity.

Service intervals and warranty includes; engine oil change at 50 000 kilometres or 1 000 hours, coolant change approximately on 100 000 kilometres or 12 months, transmission oil change on 150 000 kilometres, differential oil change on 150 000 kilometres, and warranty at 4 years or 300 000 kilometres. 

Adding this model to the FUSO stable is an exciting move for the company which over the past few years has made great inroads into the market.
