Fuso will launch a new heavy rigid Shogun model at the Brisbane Truck Show next month.

Fuso Truck and Bus says the Shogun 360 was developed as a premium 14-pallet rigid model with class-leading safety, comfort and Euro 6 emissions using a more compact engine.

It features the Daimler OM936 7.7-litre six-cylinder with 360hp (268kW) and 1,033ft-lb (1,400Nm) of torque linked to a fully-automated 12-speed transmission.

The transmission features Eco Roll fuel saving capability and a crawler mode for low-speed work.

The Shogun 360 has a tare weight of 6,950kg and is available as a 6x2 or 6x4.

It features a full-suite of safety technology, including advanced emergency braking system, lane departure warning system, electronic stability program and driver attention assist, which uses facial recognition technology to warn of fatigue.

According to Fuso Truck and Bus director Alex Müller, the Shogun 360 was developed for a specific segment of the Australian transport industry.

"Many of our customers operating in the 14-pallet distribution segment have been asking for a truck with the safety, quality and efficiency of Shogun, so we are thrilled to deliver it," Müller says.

"We have already taken extensive orders for this exciting new Shogun model and are pleased that our customers value the safety and fuel efficiency the 360 offers."

Müller says the Shogun 360 introduction is another example Fuso’s commitment to help customers boost safety and cut emissions.

"Fuso is proud to further contribute to road safety in Australia with the latest active safety features and also help reduce emissions with Euro 6 technology well in advance of any regulations," he adds.

The Shogun 360 is covered by a five year/500,000km warranty (whichever comes first), and features 50,000km service intervals.

Fuso points out that the Shogun 360’s low chassis height and electronically controlled rear air suspension, with memory function for two settings, allows for easy loading and unloading at docks.   

It features the same cabin as regular Shogun models, including the innovative passenger-side transom window to aid visibility and the ergonomic interior with a driver-focused dashboard layout.

Standard features include a 7-inch multi-media unit with digital radio, air-suspension seat, climate control and steering wheel mounted controls, and push button start. A reverse camera is standard, while as many as seven can be supported.

The Shogun range also includes prime mover and rigid models that use the Daimler OM470 10.7-litre six-cylinder engine and 12-speed AMT.

A Shogun 360 will be one of the stars on the Daimler stand at the Brisbane Truck Show at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from May 13 to 16. For more information about the show visit www.brisbanetruckshow.com.au
