Iveco reveals new off-road Stralis

Iveco has revealed a new truck designed to operate in semi-off-road environments, such as quarries and construction sites.

The Stralis X-WAY is based on the existing rigid-bodied Stralis XP, but comes with four driven wheels on its 8×4 chassis layout, along with the highest claimed payload in its segment.

Pierre Lahutte, IVECO Brand President, said, “The Stralis X-WAY breaks new ground in missions that have very specific requirements. Designed for on-road applications and light off-road mobility, X-WAY combines the Trakker chassis strength with all the fuel saving and safety features of the New Stralis. It offers all the performance and comfort benefits of our most advanced long haul on-road trucks like the latest XP, together with the robustness of our toughest off-road vehicle.”

“With the X-WAY, our customers can have the confidence to tackle the uneven and sometimes challenging terrain encountered during the ‘last mile’ when delivering to construction sites.”

The Stralis X-WAY has a low kerb weight of as littles as nine tonnes, lower than any other comparable rigid.

It will be offered with a choice of 9, 11 and 13-litre Euro 6 diesel engines when it goes on sale, though IVECO’s keenness to promote natural gas as an alternative power source suggests that the engine range could be expanded further in future.

The truck will be built at IVECO’s plant in Madrid, Spain, and will go on sale across Europe from September.
