Ford Trucks launches 6x4 tractor head series
The 3543T has an automated transmission option and is equipped with 24-inch tyres in response to market requirements
Al Tayer Motors, the official Ford Trucks importer-dealer in the United Arab Emirates, has launched a new 6x4 tractor head series, the 3543T, in the UAE.
The 3543T offers specifications such as 10mm 500 MPa strong steel chassis, twin clutch, 16-speed manual ZF transmission, and day and sleeper cab options. Powered by a 12.7L engine, the 6x4 tractor head axle configuration mainly provides the capacity to move heavy loads and enables better grip on off-road conditions such as construction and quarry sites. More power delivered to tyres enable better control and overall vehicle operation for long distance haulage.
Ashok Khanna, CEO, Al Tayer Motors, said: “The Ford Trucks 6x4 tractor head series are powerful and capable vehicles tailored to meet the specific needs of the UAE market. The 3543T is now equipped with 24-inch tyres in response to market requirements and is currently being offered with a comprehensive warranty that can be extended up to five years.”
The 24-inch tyres provide high ground clearance and traction in extreme conditions. The high front axle capacity increases its durability, and the high towing capacity allows transportation of heavy loads. Another important feature in the new Ford Series is the automated transmission option. With off-road, rocking and economy modes, the automated transmission option assists drivers in keeping their vehicle sure-footed on all terrains.
Mustafa Caner Sinanoglu, managing director Middle East, Ford Trucks, said: "The new series has been designed and developed with consideration of our GCC clients’ needs and market requirements. Furthermore, Ford Trucks aims to continue being a true business partner even after the purchase. According to customers’ business needs, we offer both preventive service contract and comprehensive service contracts, which customers can always customise according to their operating requirements.”
