Volkswagen launches all-new Delivery light truck range

Recommended Posts

Volkswagen Truck & Bus  /  September 13, 2017

The new global platform for Volkswagen light trucks

  • Trucks designed and developed in Latin America
  • International standards for the most demanding markets
  • The Volkswagen brand reaches the disputed segment of 3.5 tonnes
  • New Delivery has models up to 13 tons in different versions

The new Delivery family arrives to revolutionize cargo transportation in the lightweight trucks segment. Developed and produced in Latin America, the launch has already complied with international standards for the most demanding markets. Composed of models from 3.5 to 13 tons, it is ready to conquer the world: It was born from the recipe of success of the first generation Delivery and the customer experience from over 100,000 units produced. It was listening to the customer that allowed Volkswagen Truck & Bus to debut a new light truck range tailored for today's requirements.

With the release, the result of an investment of more than R $1 billion, Volkswagen will compete in the hot 3.5 ton segment with the new Delivery “Express”. The Express combines the features of a heavy truck including interior cab space and robustness, the all-new Delivery represents cutting edge light truck design.

The all-new Delivery is also available in 4x2 configurations rated at 4, 6, 9 and 11 metric tones.

The largest variant, the 6x2 Model 13.180, features a 180 horsepower engine and tag axle configuration.

The all-new Delivery is available in three cab trim levels: City, Trend and Prime.

Meet the new Delivery family:

Delivery Express – tailored for urban deliveries, combining the agility with impressive maneuverability and heavy truck robustness. Powered by the popular 2.8-litre Cummins ISF engine rated at 150 horsepower, it is rated at Euro 5 utilizing an SCR exhaust aftertreatment system. Speaking on safety, driver and passenger airbags as well as pretensioner-equipped seat belts are standard equipment.

Delivery 4.150 – A new premier VW light truck, the Model 4.150 features a 150 horsepower Cummins 2.8-litre engine paired to a fully synchronized 6-speed Eaton ESO-4106 transmission.

Delivery 6.160 – Featuring class-leading maneuverability, the Model 4.150 features a 160 horsepower Cummins 2.8-litre engine paired to a fully synchronized 6-speed Eaton ESO-4206 transmission.

Delivery 9.170 – Each component of the new Delivery 9.170 was developed with the most innovative materials resulting in a 10% weight reduction versus its predecessor for greater operating economy and load capacity, and reduced emissions. The 9.170 pairs a 165 horsepower Cummins 3.8-litre engine with a fully synchronized 6-speed Eaton ESO-6106 transmission or an optional ZF automated manual transmission (AMT).

Delivery 11.180 – Offering the best combination of load capacity, performance, reliability and robustness in its category, the 11.180 features a 175 horsepower 3.8-litre Cummins ISF engine paired with either a fully synchronized 6-speed Eaton ESO-6106 transmission or an optional ZF automated manual transmission (AMT).

Delivery 13.180 – The range-topping Model 13.180 features a 6x2 drive configuration with rear-mounted tag axle. Offering the highest loading capacity of the new Delivery family with robustness and flexibility, it is able to meet a broad range of customer applications. The 13.180 is powered by a 175 horsepower 3.8-litre Cummins ISF engine paired with either a fully synchronized 6-speed Eaton ESO-6206 transmission or an optional ZF automated manual transmission (AMT).

The new benchmark in global light trucks

The new Delivery family has been designed, developed and tested to meet the varying requirements of all global regions.

Interesting little tandem, and it looks like the lighter versions have independent front suspension.

The 6x2 has been extremely popular with the beverage industry, where, as in the US, they begin the day essentially overloaded.

Would fill a big whole in the North American Ford lineup.

I have suggested it to Navistar management. Alike Chevrolet Commercial, NAV would offer both the CV conventional and the Delivery low-cab-forward.

More likely these would end up at International dealers than Ford dealers.  The new VW's are Cummins powered, so they would fit will in International's current line up.  I think Traton will eventually be spun off of VW, so Ford may not have access to them anyway.
