Issue Cover

PowerTorque  |  Issue 48 August - September 2012  


PowerTorque is Australia’s leading truck and engine technology magazine and we live up to our reputation in the August/September issue by looking at new developments in aerodynamics and engine building.

For the past few years US truck maker Navistar has been talking down the introduction of Selective Catalytic Reduction but now finds itself adopting the same technology as its competitors. It’s as though Navistar has drawn a line in the sand and moved on.

We profile fleet operators including Lawson Transport, Amarant Trucking, Bodman Transport and Albury Freight Distribution Services and then we head off on the road to test the latest CAT trucks, new models from Scania and the cream of the Europeans for PACCAR, the DAF XF105.

Fuel economy is always a hot topic and by driving the latest Mercedes-Benz Actros according to the book we saved an estimated $24,000 in annual fuel costs. It’s not rocket science but it comes from having the right approach to driver training.

Aerodynamics also play their part on vehicle fuel efficiency and we look at new ways to profile air moving over the trailer that are being used in North America with excellent results.

Then when you add in a quick trip to the US to catch up with Freightliner’s new Evolution, look at the latest Stralis from Italian truck maker IVECO that’s built in Spain and then end up back in Albury in NSW to view the new CMV truck dealership, there’s a lot to look at in the latest PowerTorque.
