The MAN EfficientCruise® GPS-assisted cruise control system detects up and downward gradients along the route up to three kilometres in advance. This means that the cruise control can adjust the selected gear and speed to achieve optimum economy whilst driving. Downshifts are suppressed where appropriate. This means fewer interruptions to traction and saves fuel.
Predictive driving - smart savings
MAN EfficientCruise® means predictive driving: the GPS-supported cruise control takes the upcoming route profile into account and determines the most economical driving style. A smooth and consumption-oriented intervention in the gear selection not only eliminates large interruptions in traction, but also offers the driver a harmonious driving experience. The driver simply selects the desired speed and one of the four possible speed tolerance levels (ECO Level I - IIII). ECO Level I means the lowest deviation from the set speed - suitable for heavy traffic and poor weather conditions. ECO Level IIII tolerates the largest deviation from the set speed and allows maximum fuel saving. Ideal for light traffic on motorways and country roads. By means of a rocker switch, the ECO level may be adjusted to the current traffic situation at any time during the journey.
MAN EfficientRoll – Intelligent coasting through situational activation
Thanks to innovative technology, coasting is now also intelligently controlled by means of GPS preview. MAN has here once again significantly expanded the potential for fuel savings. Even when on a slight downward gradient, the transmission automatically shifts to the neutral position "N" - but only where fuel consumption can actually be reduced. Thus the momentum is maintained and the vehicle loses speed less quickly than with an engaged gear. The intelligent activation of the feature means that it is used less often but at the same time more efficiently.
Added value for the driver and the environment
In combination with EfficientRoll, the new generation of MAN EfficientCruise® saves more fuel and enables the vehicle to travel the roads in a more environmentally friendly way than ever before. The smooth intervention of the cruise control enormously increases comfort and optimally reduces the strain on the driver. This means that the driver can now concentrate fully on the driving tasks in greater comfort and with minimum time expenditure.
The adaptive cruise control (ACC Stop & Go) controls the speed of the truck and maintains a safe distance to the traffic ahead. In heavy Stop & Go traffic, it also takes over moving off and braking automatically.
More traction for off-road applications and greater fuel efficiency on the road: The MAN HydroDrive® hydrostatic front-axle drive masters both.
Save fuel, but without sacrificing driving comfort: MAN TipMatic® supports the driver on every tour and as the situation requires. Powerful shifting programs and transmission functions ensure perfect drive power.
