ABA5 helps to avoid or mitigate collisions with pedestrians (at speeds up to 50km/h) and other vehicles (at speeds up to 80km/h) by using a high-definition camera and radar in combination to monitor the road ahead. If there is risk of collision with a vehicle or pedestraian detected in the road ahead, ABA5 triggers a visual and audio warning and initiates partial braking, if the driver doesn’t respond, full emergency braking and hazard lights are autonomously initiated to prevent or minimise a collision.
With their Detroit® heritage, the 11-litre Euro 6 OM470 engines offer legendary torque delivery (up to 2,011Nm or 2,213Nm) and the ability to hang in there when the going gets tough, with maximum power (up to 400hp or 460hp) more or less constantly across a broad engine range. These exceptionally efficient engines feature in 6x4, 8x4 and Tractor models.
As with the OM471, twin overhead camshafts, a common-rail injection system with second-generation X-Pulse pressure booster, and asymmetric exhaust gas turbocharger combine to deliver optimal output.
Popular in the civil construction industry as tipper-trailer units, as well as for line-haul work, these heavy-duty FUSO trucks are as at home in the quarry as they are on the highway. All units feature an inter-axle diff lock.
Whether you’re travelling from the forest to the mill, or from Kaitaia to Bluff, our 8x4 series delivers first-class freight solutions with superior cab comfort, exceptional fuel economy and class-leading safety, plus light tare weights to maximise payload. The 460hp range includes two Hi Top options – one with air suspension.
The 400hp ‘Super Low’ model has a low chassis height to maximise load and features 19.5” wheels with class-leading front and rear air suspension to safeguard the most sensitive freight
For lighter duty tractor applications, the 400hp 4x2 model features a lower floor and cab height for easy access and improved cab clearance for hard-to-access areas.
Geared for New Zealand
Crucially, Shogun’s super-smart ShiftPilot software has been finely tuned over 160,000km of New Zealand roads to ensure the G230-12 automated manual transmission delivers precisely the right amount of power and torque exactly when they’re needed.
Daimler engineering and FUSO innovation go a long way. We’ve ensured they go further with input from experienced Kiwi truckie Mark ‘Skip’ Golden, who helped fine-tune the transmission mapping for our variable roads.
Ensuring it continues to deliver on the pledge ‘We Look After Our Own’, Fuso New Zealand has focused on beefing up Shogun’s already strong safety credentials as much as it has cranked up its pulling performance.
The new models boast an upgraded autonomous braking system in the form of Active Brake Assist 5 – top-of-the-range technology found in Daimler’s other headliners Actros 5 and Cascadia – as well as new Sideguard Assist, which monitors blind spots.
These additions strengthen Shogun’s existing stable of standard safety features, including Lane Departure Warning, Driver Fatigue Monitoring and Electronic Stability Control (460hp models have Active Brake Assist 4).
Active Brake Assist 5 (ABA5)
Lane Departure Warning System
LDWS operates at speeds over 60km/h to reduce the risk of lane departure accidents caused by distraction or fatigue.
A camera behind the windscreen detects lane markings and triggers visual and audio alerts if the vehicle crosses without the indicator deployed or an intended steering wheel movement.
Active Attention Assist (Driver Fatigue Monitoring)
This system employs a range of inputs from monitoring steering behaviour, the truck’s path between lane markings and the driver’s head position and eye movement to register signs of driver fatigue and issue an alert if these are detected.
Active Sideguard Assist
ASA detects moving objects on the left-hand side of the vehicle, triggering an eye-level warning light to attract the driver’s attention to the left-side wing mirrors. If there is a risk of collision, the warning light flashes several times in red. After two seconds, it remains permanently illuminated in red and, in the event of an imminent collision, a warning tone also sounds.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
ESC employs a steering sensor and yaw rate sensor to detect loss of control or the onset of rollover. This information is relayed to the ESC controller, which reduces engine torque and applies appropriate brake force to individual wheels to aid steering control and improve stability.
ESC – Directional Control and Roll-over Protection
Brake force is applied to the inside rear wheel to prevent drift when cornering on slippery roads.
Brake force is applied to both outside wheels during cornering to help prevent roll-over.
Proximity Control Assist (Adaptive Cruise Control)
Automatically adapts the truck’s speed through accelerator and brake control to maintain safe proximity to the vehicle in front.
The system incorporates a stop-and-go function, which brings the truck to a complete stop if the vehicle in front stops and slowly pulls away when the vehicle in front starts to move ahead. This technology has huge benefits in stop/go traffic and helps reduce driver fatigue.
7” TOUCHSCREEN MEDIA UNIT WITH REVERSING CAMERA
This class-leading, new system with steering wheel controls for safe operation, features an on-dash screen, which relays images from the high-definition, infrared reversing camera, and has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility for hands-free talking text-to-speech functionality. It is also compatible with other approved phone apps such as Google Maps and Spotify. Four additional cameras, reverse sensors and tyre pressure monitoring are optional extras, along with truck specific navigation.
