In this issue we take a look inside the massive IAA Truck Show in Hanover, Europe’s major biennial truck show and all that this revealed. Back home we have a drive of the Freightliner Cascadia which Daimler is currently subjecting to intensive local testing to ensure it is fit to take the fight up to those local makers like Kenworth, Volvo and Mack in the heavy market come 2020.

We also take a look at Iveco’s plans for locally built product with its ‘re-imagined’ Acco and its Stralis X-Way coming out of the Dandenong factory. We have reports on the updated N-series models from market leader Isuzu and the new Mercedes Benz Sprinter vans as well as operator stories with a Kenworth fleet and a Hino operator and we road test UD’s heavy duty Quon.

Plenty there we reckon so enjoy the read, drive safely and we will see you in 2019.
