HYUNDAI COMMERCIAL VEHICLES AUSTRALIA LAUNCH ALL-NEW TRUCK RANGE
November 11th 2016: Sydney – Newly-appointed distributor, Hyundai Commercial Vehicles Australia, today unveiled the all-new Hyundai “Mighty” range of light duty trucks to the Australian market.
The All New “Mighty” range is a new design and features a bold modern exterior, a spacious and state of the art interior boasting passenger car comfort, together with powerful and efficient drivelines.
Three models make up the All New “Mighty”range:
The EX4, which competes in the 4.5 tonne sector and can be driven on a passenger car licence.
Available with either a factory tipper, pantech or refrigerated pantech body, the EX4 comes in two wheelbase configurations, short and medium.
Next model in the range is the EX6, a 6.5 tonne truck which will be available as a cab chassis as well as a factory tipper on a medium wheelbase.
At the top of the model range is the EX8; a 7.5 tonne truck offered in medium, long and extra-long wheelbase configurations and with a choice of refrigerated and non-refrigerated pantech bodies.
A choice of Standard Cab or the bigger Supercab will be available on all three models.
The all-new EX range features vertical headlights with daytime running lights incorporated in the front bumper, giving it a strong on-road presence.
Access to and from the cabin is easy thanks to the doors opening up to 80 degrees and the wider, deeper steps.
Raked A-pillars and large side windows provide excellent visibility and the whisper quiet cabin is due to the employment of double-seal weather strips.
Emphasis has been placed on operator comfort and efficiency, with a driver focused dash, cruise control, dusk sensing headlights, powered mirrors and windows.
Finding the perfect driving position will take no time with the tilt and telescopic steering column and improved pedal layout.
Cabin storage is outstanding in both cabin layouts with each having a large roof console, seat back console, sizable glovebox, deep door pockets and a big centre console.
Passenger comfort hasn’t been overlooked with an independently adjustable seat that has, like the driver’s seat, excellent adjustability in all directions.
A powerful HVAC system will keep occupants comfortable in all weather conditions and to keep them entertained, all EX models feature an AM/FM audio system with Bluetooth connectivity, as well as MP3 and IPOD compatibility, with steering wheel controls.
To ensure mobile phones and laptops are always charged, four 12-volt power outlets are spread through the cabin.
At the heart of the EX range is a powerful and frugal 3.9 litre Four-cylinder turbo diesel powerplant with two power output levels.
The EX4 develops 103kw / 2500rpm and delivers max torque of 392 newton metres at 1400rpm Power and torque increase to 125 kilowatts and torque to 610 newton metres in the EX6 allowing it to easily operate with the extra carrying capacity.
Both the EX4 and EX6 have a common dual mode five speed manual transmission.
The EX8 shares the same power and torque as the EX6 but gains a six-speed manual transmission with dual modes.
All EX models have a comprehensive suite of active and passive safety features including: Vehicle Dynamic Control for improved stability and a shock absorbing steering wheel that reduces driver fatigue, by minimising vibrations.
Also standard four-wheel disc brakes, hill start assist, longer multi-leaf rear springs and gas-filled shock absorbers, providing greater comfort for both occupants and cargo and finally, a zincgalavanised, high-strength steel cabin providing improved driver and passenger door protection.
In a unique departure from the norm, the Hyundai EX range warranty not only covers a 3 year period and / or 200,000 kilometres, the warranty also applies to any body fitted to the truck.
For the first time, an owner makes one call to Hyundai and anything to do with the truck or body is taken care of with the one call. No longer will owners have to endure the time consuming and frustrations of ringing several different suppliers for any repair or a warranty claims.
The EX bodies are all made by Hyundai Special Vehicles and offer customers both, ‘Ready Built, Ready to Work’ or tailor-made cargo transportation solutions.
In addition to the comprehensive warranty, all EX models come with a 24/7 nationwide roadside assist program for the length of the warranty as well as service and parts back up.
