Photographs of the magazine KamAZ with K5 cabins appeared on the web. The "three-axle" pre-series is running development tests in real-world conditions on the M-7 "Moscow-Ufa" federal highway. The photo of the experimental truck is published by Auto-Ref. The new, like KAMAZ 54901, has a high salon K5. As an extension to the onboard platform.
Previously, two-axle dump trucks were published on the Internet.
It is worth noting that the "third" third axis of the new generation of trilogies is completely built, which means that the truck's wheel formula is no longer 6×4 but 6×2. Sloth allows you to save fuel and protect the rubber. Judging by the protruding rear axle, the car drove over the motorway without load.
We can safely say that the new three-axle vehicle is the "successor" of the KAMAZ-5320.
The 5320 carries the name of a "crash" truck, it was who became the first brand of the KAMAZ model. The car was equipped with a V-shaped eight-cylinder diesel engine with a capacity of 10.85 liters, with a capacity of 180-210 hp, connected with a 10-speed manual gearbox. The model "lived" on a conveyor from 1976 to 2001.
Recall, the main KamAZ tractor with the index 54901 will be the first model of the new K5 group of trucks. Fifth generation serial tractors will be on the assembly line in January 2019. At the same time, during the current year Naberezhnye Chelny will be complemented by an experimental industrial party; "long-distance workers" will complement their transport companies KamAZ and several large carriers – their feedback and feedback are needed.
Most KamAZ 54901 external and external components are combined with the latest generation of Mercedes Benz Actros (produced since 2012), while at the same time it has a completely original front and other interior design.
The new KamAZ will be equipped with the new P6 turbodiesel, which was created in cooperation with the Swiss company Liebherr. The engine has a capacity of 12.0 liters and a capacity of 380 to 550 horsepower The requested vehicle is 1.5 million kilometers and each interval is 150,000 kilometers. The engine is assembled with the German automated gearbox ZF Traxon.
According to preliminary information, 54,901 will be localized at 80-85%, and will cost 15-20% less than the same Actros.
