Shogun is Back - the Most Advanced Japanese Truck Ever

April 7, 2019

The legendary Shogun is back. Armed with six active safety systems, superior comfort, and an all new powertrain with class-leading Euro 6 emissions, this new generation heavyweight is head and shoulders above its predecessors – and the competition.

Shogun represents the pinnacle of current, ready-for-market FUSO-Daimler engineering. Tested over 3.3 million kilometres in Japan and 150,000km on New Zealand roads, in tipper and line-haul applications, this heavy-duty pioneer is ready to hit the ground running.

“We are very excited to be bringing Shogun back to New Zealand as the most advanced Japanese truck ever,” said Fuso NZ managing director Kurtis Andrews. “It’s an iconic name with an impressive legacy and the new-generation model is sure to add to its prestige.

“Stacked with leading technology and an all-new powertrain, Shogun is way ahead of the pack for safety, comfort and economy. Its new ShiftPilot transmission mapping, customised for New Zealand conditions, is a huge step up and drivers will appreciate the significantly quicker gear shifts – twice as fast as in the HD.”

With an extensive range of safety systems and a premium interior, Shogun will appeal equally to drivers who want a safe and comfortable work environment, and operators whose staff are their most valuable asset.
