Comfortable and efficient driving performance
"ESCOT-Ⅵ" – the latest evolution in 12-speed automated manual transmissions, plus disc brakes and an interior designed for driver comfort, deliver a sophisticated driving experience that reduces driver stress and fatigue.
Unparalleled operability: "ESCOT-Ⅵ"
"ESCOT-Ⅵ" provides highly-evolved hardware and software control to ensure professional driving performance. With its advanced and accurate gear changes and smooth fuel efficiency, ESCOT-Ⅵ eases operability, reduces levels of stress and fatigue while driving, and contributes to driver safety. Performance is further improved on snowy roads and in muddy areas.
The ESCOT-Ⅵ gear lever uses a straight shifting pattern, an evolution in its simple and easy-to-use design.
Traffic Eye Cruise Control
This system maintains a fixed distance from the preceding vehicle, detected by a millimeter-wave radar. If the preceding vehicle accelerates, the truck will accelerate within the range of speed that has been set. The driver can set the speed and distance between vehicles with the switches on the control panel. A speed of 30 km/h or higher can be set. If the speed of the truck falls below 15 km/h, this function is cancelled.
4-spoke steering wheel
The shape of the steering wheel has been ergonomically redesigned for a more comfortable grip that reduces driver fatigue. Switches are conveniently positioned for easy access to functions and information, and the driver's line of sight and operation line are on the same plane for efficient, safe, and reliable operability.
Instrument panel affords excellent visibility
The newly designed instrument panel is loaded with driving information and LED indicators arranged in an easy-to-understand way. Information is displayed in zones arranged according to warning priority, with essential information at the top. A large, 5-inch color LCD multi-display monitor occupies the center of the instrument panel, with fonts and layout designed for easy visibility.
1. Easy-to-read font size, easy-to-see symbols and gauges.
2. Multi-display, controlled with switches on the steering wheel.
3. Classy design featuring silver rings.
5. Cruise Control information
6. Gear number information
7. Auxiliary brake information
Dashboard designed for driver comfort
We have designed a sleek black and silver dashboard that skillfully combines straight lines and curves, to enhance driver operability and visibility, and to provide optimal arrangement of the multi-display monitor, switches, equipment, and instruments. Switches are set to light up when in use and to light up at night time, so that all switches can be easily understood at a quick glance.
Disc brakes for reliable and powerful braking
Disc brakes are available on all models for quick and smooth pedal response, and reliable braking even on long descents with a full load. By combining a variety of advanced systems, such as brake blending and an Emergency Braking System (EBS), we have achieved braking comfort that reduces driver fatigue, and is also easy on cargo.
