Compact with a low cab weight, the P-Series is one of Scania’s most versatile ranges in its lineup. It can be configured for a myriad of surfaces ranging from paved or even dirt roads. The truck can be outfitted with either a 7-liter or a 9-liter engine that is fed with diesel.
Scania offers two types of cab designs, short/day or sleeper. Short and day cabs offer a comfortable driving experience for the crew with multiple storage spaces and an ergonomic cabin layout. The Day cab is offered in a variety of height variations, namely the P-Short cab, P-Day Cab Low, and the P-Day Cab Normal. Meanwhile, the Sleeper expands the cabin area with more storage capacity, a resting area, and expanded room behind the driver and front passenger. Under this type of cab, Scania has the P-Sleeper Cab Low, the P-Sleeper Cab Normal, and the P-Sleeper Cab Highline.
As for other body configurations, Scania offers the P-Series in either a tractor body or rigid body. Wheel configurations for the tractor body are 4x2, 4x4, 6x2, 6x2/2, 6x2/4, 6x4, and 6x6. For rigid trucks, the number of wheels and tires increases, allowing Scania to offer a wider range of configurations like 4x2, 4x4, 6x2, 6x2/2, 6x2/4, 6x4, 6x6, 8x2, 8x2*6, 8x2/4, 8x4, 8x4*4, and 10x4*6.
There are two engine options for the P-Series 280, which can come in either 7 or 9-liter displacement sizes. The smaller 7-liter engine makes 280 hp and 1,200 Nm of torque, while the 9-liter makes the same horsepower figure, but with 1,400 Nm of torque. There is also the option of getting either Scania’s 8 or 8+1-speed gearboxes under the Range-Change line. Another option for the transmission of the P-Series is the Range-Splitter gearbox, which has up to either 12 or 12+1 gears. Following that, Scania equips its powertrains with either single-driven rear axle gears or tandem-driven axle gears that allow the truck to handle up to 78 to 80 tones of gross vehicle weight with the single-driven set, or from 80 tons all the way to 210 tons with the tandem-driven set.
