FORD F-MAX: A TRUCK WITH DIFFERENT AERODYNAMIC SOLUTIONS TO LOWER FUEL CONSUMPTION
Ford has been producing a truck called F-Max since 2018 with a total mass from 18 to 44 tons.
It was presented at the international fair in Hanover and was initially conceived for the South American, Turkish, Russian and Eastern European markets, but in 2019 it was also widespread in Western Europe with great success, because it was mechanically developed to obtain the best reliability with few maintenance costs to bear.
The Ford Truck has added an additional feature to improve its commercial strategy and thus spread above all in the Italian industrial vehicle market; in fact, for the construction of this vehicle various aerodynamic solutions have been designed to reduce fuel consumption.
Thanks to the Ecotorq engine, the new F-Max, combined with the 12-speed ZF automatic transmission, guarantees reduced fuel consumption of around 4%. In addition, the new model available as early as January 2021 has a new 2.5 meter wide cab and an internal height of 2,160 millimeters. A new navigation system, automatic climate control, a multifunction steering wheel and a 7.2-inch touchscreen display were installed on board.
It is a hyper-technological vehicle because it is subjected to Predictive Cruise Control, which allows you to predetermine the speed of the vehicle and then, with the adaptive system, allows you to adjust the gear to maintain an optimal safety distance with the vehicle in front. And finally, with another system, the vehicle stops in an emergency.
In short, a whole series of instruments that are connected to a platform that allows transport companies to access all information regarding the vehicle, its position, fuel consumption and even the driver´s performance.
