High-performance gearboxes

The New CF and XF come with the latest generation of TraXon automated gearboxes (12 and 16 speed). Fewer friction losses, even faster upshifts and the extended use of EcoRoll contribute to lowest fuel consumption, whereas driver comfort is enhanced thanks to its quiet and smooth operation and precise clutch actuation. The TraXon automated transmission also allows higher reductions in lowest gears through which even faster drive lines could be realized.

High-Efficiency Rear Axles

In addition these new engines and gearboxes, we’ve introduced high-efficiency rear axles with low-friction wheel ends. What’s more, a range of faster ratios starting from 2.05 enable lower engine rpm’s for highest fuel efficiency. To reduce friction losses, we’ve introduced ground differential gear sets and added new bearings and seals in the rear axle along with low-level, low-friction rear axle oil.

The ideal base for any superstructure

Strong, light and superb handling

Pure excellence is also carried through in the new well thought out chassis. Manufactured from high-quality steel, it’s both strong and light. In tractor units and some rigids, the robust, lightweight rear axle is mounted with a Stabilink construction.

  • Light weight increases fuel savings and payload, for greater transport efficiency.
  • The Stabilink rear axle suspension ensures optimum roll stability, higher payloads and superb handling.

Maximum flexibility

The New CF and XF offer unmatched efficiency when it comes to chassis configurations. Components can be positioned to optimally meet your specific requirements for highest efficiency. In addition, there is ample of space for mounting pump systems, crane leg supports or large fuel tanks.

  • The smart chassis lay-out allows fuel tank volumes of up to no less than 1,500 liters on tractors.
  • Variation in chassis component positioning is almost endless for industry-leading flexibility.

Body builder-friendly

The new CF and XF offer an extensive Body Attachment Module (BAM) programme that offers excellent body builder friendliness. Specific modules are available for boxed bodies and the installation of cranes. Rigids have a standard hole pattern at rear for easy fitment of cross members and tail lifts.

  • Extended Body Attachment Program shortens build-up time.
  • A completely flat chassis and components installed on the inside add to great body builder friendliness.

Ultra-compact EAS unit

For the New CF and XF we developed a completely new and ultra-compact Emissions After-treatment System. It results in more free space at the chassis. For special applications, DeNOx installation and Diesel Particulate Filter don’t need to be split anymore. That also contributes to highest efficiency.

  • Ultra-compact EAS unit means more free chassis space.
  • It’s 50 kilograms lower weight directly translates into the additional payload.

ECAS air suspension

For excellent reliability, durability and functionality, the electronically controlled air suspension (ECAS) has been completely renewed. New functions include pressure ratio control, lift axle 2 control and pressure control of lift bellows. It also offers ECAS freeze and ECAS bump and freeze to stabilise the axle when operating auxiliaries like cranes and hook lifts. An innovative, easy-to-use remote control with illuminated buttons is connected to the seat.

  • New ECAS options ensure safer working during loading and unloading
  • Drivers enjoy precise control under all conditions using handy remote
