The world's largest food retailer Walmart has revealed its idea of an efficient semi-truck that would cut substantially cut emissions caused by road transportation. Actually, they didn’t stop with the tractor and went on to create a full trailer made out of carbon fiber. Yes, that’s right, the huge panels you see making up the sides of the regular-sized trailer measure 53 feet (16 meters) in length and are by all accounts the biggest of their kind in the world.
Called the WAVE concept, its name stands for Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experiment, and the most striking thing about it is the shape of the cab, as well as the way the interior is set up. The driver gets a perfectly centered view of the road, thanks to the McLaren F1 driving position, with additional information being supplied exclusively via information screen – there are no physical gauges in sight.
Power for the WAVE comes from a “prototype advanced turbine-powered, range-extending series hybrid powertrain (or microturbine-hybrid powertrain) combined with an electric motor and battery storage system.” Purely a concept, the WAVE will not spawn a Walmart-branded truck, at least not officially or any time soon, plus it’s very unlikely that it will be deemed financially viable to make an entire trailer out of carbon, even with the reported weight savings of 4,000 lbs (1,814 kg).
Ford has revealed and detailed its latest generation of F650/F750 trucks that are more efficient, ride on new upfit-friendly chassis and come with the promise of having thoroughly tested. In fact, the testing bit actually pops up a lot in the official text, emphasized through repeated use of the word “tough” (a quick search shows it appears nine times on the press release page, only three of which were part of “Built Ford Tough”).
Come spring 2014, the Blue Oval wants to keep itself ahead of the commercial pack, so its launching the new range in three cab styles (Regular Cab, Super Cab and Crew Cab) and three variants: straight frame, dock height and an all-new dedicated tractor model for heavy towing. A new engine is also on offer, in the form of a 6.7-liter PowerStroke V8 diesel that is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Additionally, a 6.8-liter V10 petrol engine can be specified too, and be prepped to run on (harmfully-obtained) compressed natural or liquid propane gas. Also new is the styling, which the manufacturer says lends itself well to practicality too. The tech front gets an update too, the Intelligent Oil Change Monitoring that is now standard-fit - it calculates intervals based on actual usage.
Designed for a gross truck and trailer weight of 250 t, the Mercedes-Benz SLT heavy-haulage vehicle is available now in numerous configurations with three and four axles based on the Actros and Arocs. The steel-sprung Arocs SLT based on the particularly robust Arocs Grounder is available with the BigSpace cab as well as the StreamSpace cab measuring 2300 mm in width, while the Actros SLT is produced only with air suspension. The steel-sprung Arocs SLT is available in the following variants: Arocs SLT 6x4, wheelbase 3300 mm or 3900 mm, Arocs SLT 8x4, wheelbase 3900 mm, Arocs SLT 8x6, wheelbase 4200 mm, Arocs SLT 6x6, wheelbase 3900 mm, and Arocs SLT 8x8, wheelbase 4850 mm. As a genuine global truck the SLT heavy-haulage vehicle will be available with right- and left-hand drive, and in special variants, such as all-wheel-drive vehicles fitted with tyres up to size 14.00 R 20 for off-road use.
The four-axle variants form the core of the range. In this configuration the technically permissible gross vehicle weight stands at 41 t, with individual axle loads from front to rear of 9 t, 8 t and 2 x 13 t. For export markets, higher gross weights for the tractor of up to 48 t are possible in the case of the Arocs 8x8. While unmistakeably based on the Arocs, the SLT heavy-haulage vehicle sports an unchanging hallmark in the form of the bumper centre section sporting an attachment bracket for a heavy-duty coupling to be deployed in pushing mode. Hydraulic and brake connections are provided at this point for such applications. Steps are additionally integrated for servicing work.
A fitting candidate for a superlative to the term "heavy-duty" would be the Mercedes-Benz OM 473 six-cylinder in-line engine. The OM 473 is available in three output ratings: 517, 578 and 625 Hp, and a maximum torque from 2600 to 3000 Nm. The supercharged decompression engine brake on the OM 473 which goes by the name of "High Performance Engine Brake" is a boon in heavy-duty transport. The driver activates the brake in two stages via the right-hand steering-column lever, triggering a very fast response. The engine brake attains an impressive output of up to 475 kW (646 hp). The engine power is transferred by the Mercedes G 280-16 transmission with PowerShift automatic gearshift – the only automated transmission with 16 gears on a heavy-duty tractor.
