With improved torque build-up at low rev speeds, start-up is smoother than ever and PowerShift Advanced simplifies starting and gear shifting behaviour: shifting times are up to 40% faster* in the upper gears, thereby reducing torque disruption. 

When it comes to manoeuvring, trucks often present drivers with unexpected challenges. Manoeuvring is now more comfortable* with the help of a more progressive feel in the lower pedal travel (i.e. from a pedal position at rest to pushed down halfway). The direct response in the upper pedal travel (pushed down halfway to full throttle) provides a more dynamic response when starting off. It also makes it easier to drive through roundabouts and accelerate out of them with confidence.
