Looking to strengthen its position in the truck segment, Volkswagen Truck & Bus launched its new Delivery 6.160 chassis at ExpoTransporte in November 2017. This unit was designed for urban deliveries regardless of the equipment needed, be it a dry or refrigerated box, a pipe, a crane, a platform or any other application. The chassis can hold a load of up to 3.381kg and offers increased performance in maneuverability and fuel consumption, as well as a wide, comfortable and modern cabin.
The new Delivery 6.160 also brings operating advantages thanks to its technical features. The unit equips a Cummins ISF, 2.8L engine with four cylinders and 2,800cm3 with Euro V technology and selective catalytic reduction (Urea) for emissions post-treatment. The engine delivers a maximum torque of 430Nm at between 1,500rpm and 2,400rpm and a maximum power output of 152hp at 3,200rpm. The engine is coupled to a cable-powered manual Eaton ESO-4206 six-gear transmission. The Delivery also features an independent front suspension with telescopic, double-action hydraulic dampers and a rear suspension with a fixed Hotchkiss axle and double-action hydraulic dampers for greater comfort.
The Delivery 6.160 complements Volkswagen’s 9.170 and 11.180 models. “The introduction of this model to our product portfolio reinforces our offer as a full-liner brand. The model is already available at our dealerships and our aftersales team is qualified to address our cients' needs,” says Miguel Vallejo, Commercial Director of MAN Truck & Bus.
Besides a capable maintenance and repair operation, once clients acquire any Volkswagen Truck & Bus model from the Delivery family they also have access to other aftersales services such as VOLKS Assist, a 1-800 highway-rescue phone line; VOLKS Telematics, a system to track the company’s fleet operations and VOLKS Training, a program to train new operators so they get the most benefits from the vehicle.
