Scania V8 Truck Range Reviews
Scania's the top of the line truck has received new styling up-to-date and motor enhancements for the 2010 model-year.
The new V8 engine is offered only in conjunction with Scania Opticruise, either the completely automated version or using a clutch pedal, both featuring the applications launched lately.
The new V8 truck range receives Scania, version and V8 badges in chrome finish in front and chrome trim across the clean air-intakes, V8 image on side-skirts, unique front grille in Black Amazing with unique net pattern, Xenon headlights (choice) with dark surrounds, especially-styled exhaust tailpipe with chromefinish cover plate on lefthand side.
"This unique blend of efficiency, transportation effectiveness, fuel-economy, dura bility and driver appeal indicates high-productivity in most respects. Consequently, Scania V8 truck designs possess the greatest resale value on the marketplace. The brand new styling more builds on this particular picture."
Press release following the jump.
New styling characteristics make most of Scania's esteemed V8 trucks instantly recognisable on your way. Four engine outputs can be found, 500, 560, 620 and 730 hp. Scania XPI and a plethora of other inventions in the new 730 hp engine increase heavy-truck productivity to a brand new degree.
Along with the launching of the brand-new topoutput engine, Scania's variety of V8 truck models - based in the newest Scania R-series, International Truck of the Year 2010 - receive a distinctive identity that reflects the powerful position these models experience in industry, among motorists in addition to operators.
"Scania's V8 trucks have assembled a niche of their own in the truck industry," says Henrik Henriksson, Senior Vice-president Trucks at Scania. "The great majority of Scania's V8 clients purchase for logical reasons. They require the reliability, operation and accessibility to get their work done as economically as possible.
"This unique blend of efficiency, transportation effectiveness, fuel-economy, dura bility and driver appeal indicates high-productivity in most respects. Consequently, Scania V8 truck designs possess the greatest resale value on the marketplace. The brand new styling more builds on this particular picture.
Having 3500 Nm of torque on tap makes a delight out of any transportation undertaking and will place a big smile on each motorist's encounter," concludes Mr Henriksson.
Scania V8 trucks are dominating the end of the truck industry, accounting for over half the total sales volume around 600-hp and above. With four power rankings to select from, Scania's requiring V8 customers finally have a broad selection that no one can fit.
The blend of 3500 Nm and 730 hp is greater than any adversary can gather. Scania's powertrain is adapted to manage this effortlessly. A strengthened Scania gearbox can be used fitted as standard together with the new Scania Opticruise automated gear-altering system. Because of the smooth power delivery inherent in a V8 motor, other power-train parts stay mainly unchanged.
The new V8 is completely incorporated in Scania's modular engine range. The engine is conditioned by the modular engine platform and systems applied to Scania's hottest in-line engines, while also sharing numerous characteristics and parts using the present V8s. Scania's theory of detailed developments that usually fit as well as several other elements and components minimises the hassle for clients. Expert servicing and components provide are easily accessible.
PARTICULAR V8 INDIVIDUALITY
Scania V8 owners and motorists are typically happy with their vehicles and desire to display it in other ways, frequently with accents and embellishments inside as well as outside. From Sep tember 2010, all Scania V8 trucks may have styling characteristics that differentiate them from other Scania trucks, developing a fresh visual foundation for operators to construct their picture on.

EXTENDED V8 TRUCK RANGE WITH EXCEPTIONAL DRIVEABILITY
Scania V8 engines are celebrated for being fuelefficient when working hard, however unexpectedly frugal in a load. High-torque at low revs opens the possibility to conserve fuel by specifying a quick back axle. Scania offers the possi bility to operators of operating their trucks on up-to 100% bio-diesel to lessen the carbon footprint.
The engines are tuned to provide loads of torque currently at idling speed to ease beginning. Maximum torque is created from 1000 r/min. Electricity delivery is smooth through the useful rev range.
INHOUSE DESIGN AND ENGINEERING
True to convention, Scania is securing control of tactical measures in performance and improvement control. Engine production and development, along with the layout of the engine management, emission control systems and fuel-injection are carried out inhouse.
This is really a strategic choice to ensure that goals and demands for fuel and perform ance economy are satisfied.
Essential features of the newest highoutput V8 engine
Component of Scania's modular engine range, sharing elements with Scania's in-line and other V8 engines, facilitating support and parts supply, along with mechanics training.
Traditional simple-toservice engine design with individual cylinder heads
Scania XPI (additional highpressure injection) commonrail fuel-injection enabling several injections in addition to personal independently of camshaft position
Max. Fuel-injection pressure up-to 2400 bar, standard working pressure 1800 bar
Scania engine management controls all enginerelated systems to the automobile, including emission control, while reaching all other control systems to the automobile
Euro 5 and EEV conformity
MODULAR ENGINE SYSTEM
The new 730 hp V8 a part of Scania's new engine system with commonrail fuel-injection, introduced in 2007 on in-line engines. It's a totally new design, stronger to allow higher combustion pressures, however it retains conventional Scania features like individual cylinder heads, camshaft situated full of the block and back-mounted time gears, along with the familiar centrifugal oil cleaner. It shares a whole lot of the architecture and several parts with the engines, along with with another Euro 5 V8s, though a fresh layout.
This gives equi librium inside the motor, with perfect equilibrium, even power pulses and ultrasmooth power delivery, smoother than an inline-six of similar-size.
The stroke is unchanged, empowering many parts to be distributed to another Scania V8s and leaving the geometry unaffected within the underside of the motor and in-line engines. The bore has-been raised by 3 millimeters, increasing the swept volume by 0.8 litres. The bore is shared with the brand new inline engines, which means that identical pistons, cylinder liners, cylinder heads, etc., can be utilized for many 9.3-, 12.7- and 16.4-litre commonrail engines.
The camshafts are mounted within the exact same positions as before, I.e. large within the cylinder block to allow using short, secure pushrods. New camshafts are used and also the valve train is simplified because with commonrail fuel injection, the injectors are electronically-controlled, eradicating the demand for different pushrods for the fuel injectors. Other parts within the top portion of the motor, I.e. the cylinder heads and valve train, are mostly unchanged and distributed to the in-line engines.
The proven fact the same parts are used through the entire truck variety opens up for nearly endless scope for operators to tailor vehicles exactly to their requirements.
Trucks with the new highoutput V8 possess a clutch with higher clamp pressure. A strengthened overdrive model of Scania's range-splitter gearbox is employed (12speed with two crawlers), featuring gearwheels with double shotpeening and revised equipment geometry. Maximum torque comes within the very best three gear ratios, offering maximum driveability at street speed. Torsion is decreased 5-6% in the lower gears, but still higher-than anything else on the marketplace.
Regardless of the high power rating of the new V8, just like the engines, an effective singlereduction rear-axle may be utilized for most programs to maximise fuel-economy and minimise power loss.
