Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation(MFTBC) unveiled a new model of the Super Great truck recently.
New Super Great for Improved Fuel Efficiency
The sales of the new Super Great in the Japanese market are scheduled to start within 2023.
The new Super Great, now fully remodeled 6 years after its last major redesign in 2017, focuses on delivering improved economy, safety, and comfort. The latest model is equipped with the 6R30 high-performance 12.8L engine, which provides both power and efficiency. In addition, the cab has been redesigned to improve aerodynamics, and tyres with low rolling resistance have also been adopted to meet Japan’s FY2025 Fuel Efficiency Standards (known as JH25).
The new truck features an upgraded cab design that centers on the FUSO Black Belt motif. The FUSO Black Belt, which is integrated into other products within the lineup such as the light-duty Canter and the heavy-duty Aero Queen coach bus, provides FUSO products with an immediately recognisable identity, bolstering the brand’s overall visibility within the commercial vehicle industry. On the Super Great, the Black Belt motif communicates the strength and sophistication worthy of a flagship heavy-duty truck. The new design also incorporates functional merits: not only is the new cab exterior more aerodynamic, reduced use of resin parts and more environmentally friendly surface treatments contribute to the reduction of CO₂ in the manufacturing process.
In addition, the new Super Great comes with the latest in advanced safety technology. The truck is equipped with Active Brake Assist 6 (ABA 6), the updated frontal collision mitigation system. Active Side Guard Assist 2.0, which detects hazards on both sides of the vehicle for turns and lane-changes, is also part of the standard product offering.
As an integral part of the Daimler Truck group, MFTBC supports the organization’s pursuit of Vision Zero. The aspiration aims to eventually reduce road accidents involving Daimler Truck vehicles to zero through the development of safety and driver assistance technology as well as automated driving systems. MFTBC was the first commercial vehicle manufacturer to bring Level-2 automated driving assistance features to the Japanese market with the 2019 Super Great, thanks to technology developed within the Daimler Truck network, and it remains committed to delivering further market-leading trucks that enable safer and more efficient long-haul transportation.
