The Trakker is a rugged off-road truck, purpose built for demanding conditions and capable of withstanding the toughest off-road work. The Trakker has proven its reliability and durability, successfully competing in the world famous Dakar rally over many years.
The Trakker 4x4 is powered by Iveco's versatile Cursor 8 – 6 cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine. The 7.8 litre powerplant produces 360 hp (265 kW) and 1106 Ib ft (1500 Nm) of torque ensuring plenty of power for the application. The larger 6x6 variant makes use of the popular Cursor 13 - 6 cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine. Packing 450 hp (336 kW) and 1620 lb/ ft (2200 Nm) of torque, the Trakker has ample power to conquer the most demanding jobs.
Coupled to the Cursor 13 in the 6x6 Trakker is the ZF Eurotronic II automated transmission. The unit is a 16-speed transmission which has an electronically controlled clutch engagement. While driving in automated mode the Eurotronic transmission automatically selects the most ideal gearshift according to load, road speed, road incline, etc. The transmission also provides the operator with the flexibility to manually select gears should the application and track conditions require this. Manual gear engagement is simple via a touch on the gear selector as it also is in the 12-speed automated manual available in the Trakker 4x4.
The Trakker cab is known for its superior ergonomics and high levels of comfort adopting many of the features and equipment seen in Iveco's road going models. The well specified cabins work to lessen the impact on the driver and passengers, particularly after long periods driving in tough terrain.
The Iveco Trakker is a genuine off road vehicle, with permanent all-wheel drive to all axles. The Trakker is fitted with parabolic leaf springs, anti-roll bars and shock absorbers on the front suspension, while the rear suspension is an Iveco Cantilever setup in the 6x6 and parabolic leaf springs in the 4x4 - it's a powerful combination that strikes the right balance between vehicle articulation, load carrying ability and comfort.
