These two Scanias share the same model name G 450 CB8x4 MHZ (KO). However, it's the details that give each its special character.
They both share the same name and look confusingly similar. But despite their identical model designation, they are fundamentally different characters. Say hello to the Scania modular system. The manufacturer gives customers the choice, even in the same performance class. The 450 HP engine that powers both candidates is available for Euro 6 with both EGR and SCR or in the SCR-only version.
Two big brothers, different details
The all-black model relies on the traditional recipe with both ingredients, whereas its counterpart with a white driver's cab uses SCR-only. The first difference is in the weight, with the SCR-only model weighing precisely 37 kg less. Although it requires more AdBlue, it will save one or two extra drops of fuel.
When it comes to the rest of the vehicle, the Scania modular system leaves customers spoiled for choice with a wide range of possible variants. Customers can pick and choose to their heart's content. One example is the short G cab with low roof. Even though the engine tunnel here rises nowhere near as high into the driver's cab as in the lower P cab, the total height of the vehicle (3,160 millimeters) is still low enough to avoid collisions even with old silo loading points 3.4 meters off the ground. This still leaves a significant climb to the driver's seat. The distance of 1,625 millimeters separating the cab floor from the ground is bridged by a total of four steps.
