Event information

16 April 2010

Scania’s new top-of-the-line V8 has the highest torque and power ratings of any truck engine: 3,500 Nm and 730 hp. With the latest Scania XPI fuel injection system and a host of other innovations, the new engine raises the bar for heavy truck productivity.

Market-leading truck range

In conjunction with the launch of the top-output engine, new styling traits make all of Scania’s V8 trucks easily recognisable on the road. Based on the Scania R-series (International Truck of the Year 2010), Scania V8 trucks dominate the high-output end of the truck market, accounting for more than half of the total sales volume around 600 hp and above. With four power ratings to choose from – 500, 560, 620 and 730 hp – demanding customers now have a wide choice that nobody can match.

Outstanding reliability

The combination of 3,500 Nm and 730 hp is more than any competitor can muster, and Scania's powertrain has been adapted to handle it with ease. A reinforced Scania gearbox is fitted as standard with the new Scania Opticruise automated gearchanging system.

Service and support

The new V8 is fully integrated in Scania's modular engine range. The engine is based on the modular engine platform and technologies used with Scania's new inline engines, while also sharing many features and components of existing V8s. Professional servicing and parts supply are readily available.
