With its Euro 3, Cummins 4.5L ISB engine, the N140, with its excellent fuel consumption and low cost of ownership, is set to become popular in the transport industry, according to JAC.

Over the past decade, JAC Motors has invested in refining its N-Series range of trucks, ensuring better performance, reliability, safety and a low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). The new N140 is a testament to this commitment.

"A trademark of the N-Series is its excellent fuel efficiency across the range. The new N140 continues in that tradition," says Karl-Heinz Göbel, Chief Executive Officer of JAC Motors South Africa. "Add to that its low cost of ownership, robust chassis design and durable drivetrain, and you have a truck suitable for various modern-day transport applications."

The N140's Euro 3, Cummins 4.5L ISB four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine is known for its power and performance, which makes it ideal for heavy-duty applications. It produces 154 kW @ 2 300 r/min and 740 Nm of peak torque between 1 200 - 1 800 r/min.

The N140's powerful engine is paired with a synchromesh six-speed manual transmission and a hydraulic-assisted clutch. The drivetrain set-up allows for low engine RPMs at cruising speeds, thereby reducing fuel consumption.

The N140 benefits from the N-Series' new heavy-duty ladder-frame chassis stamping and welding treatment process, making it robust for various transport applications. The main advantage of a rugged chassis frame is the ability to support heavy loads under all operating conditions.

The N140 supports a wheelbase of 5 300 mm and offers a payload of 9 000 kg. Its dimensions are 8 890 mm (L) x 2 348 mm (W) x 2 475 mm (H), making it suitable for various body applications.

The N140's driver-friendly cab, with its innovative flat floor design, provides generous space for the driver, two passengers and their gear. Wider door apertures, footsteps and safety climbing handles allow for easy entry and exit, which is less tiring for the driver and passengers.

The reinforced cab floor increases driver protection, while the double rear-view exterior mirrors improve visibility. LED Daytime Running Lights, height adjustable headlights, a reverse warning buzzer, a seatbelt warning alarm and a tilt-and-telescoping multi-function steering wheel with radio and cruise control settings enhance the N140's safety credentials.

The N140 supports a neat, functionally designed truck interior. It features an air-conditioner, electric windows, a 12V Accessory Power Outlet, and a radio with an MP3 player and Bluetooth, including a USB. It features a bunk bed, a lockable toolbox and ample storage space inside the cab.

The N140 9-tonne is available in chassis cab configuration. The N-Series line-up comprises six derivatives, all featuring ABS and A/C. Prices exclude VAT:

N140 Cummins 4.5L ISB 9-tonne C/C (R607 827), N90 Cummins 3.8L ISB 6-tonne C/C (R499 914), N90 Cummins 3.8L ISB 6-tonne D/S (R517 305), N75 EV 4-tonne C/C (R1 042 609), N56 2.8L TDI 3-tonne C/C (R334 696) and the N56 2.8L TDI 3-tonne D/S (R347 740).
