Commercial Motor names Scania 3-Series “the greatest truck of all time”


Recommended Posts

Scania Press Release / July 16, 2015

The magazine published a list of the 100 greatest trucks of all time in its 7 May 2015 issue and said of its top pick:

“Scania’s legendary 3-series takes our top spot. Introduced in the autumn of 1987, the 3-series built on the already enviable reputation of the 2-series and scooped the IToY award in 1989. Still highly regarded today, the top model was the 143M Streamline with 500hp. Trucks don’t get better than this.”

The magazine’s 100 greatest truck list did not include trucks built in the past 10 years as “they haven’t had time to prove their greatness or iconic status yet.”

Three more Scania trucks also made the list. The 1-series was placed 4th, the R-series came 11th and the Scania-Vabis LB 76, developed as a result of maximum length legislation, was placed 26th.
