Coming from the PRT lineup of trucks from the Scania brand, the S-Series is a long-distance hauler that is designed to give the driver and his crew a comfortable trucking experience. Good enough for the longest of jobs and built with luxurious features and amenities, the S-Series is the truck for the most taxing journeys on the road. The 500 is the middle child of the lineup, and it features higher output compared to its entry-level counterpart, the 380.
Two body types comprise the lineup, with the S-Sleeper Cab Normal being the standard offering, and the S-Sleeper Cab Highline being the more accommodating of the two. More bed space is allotted for the Highline, and up to two occupants can be housed.
As its name suggests, the 13-liter turbo-diesel motor in the S-Series 500 produces 500 hp and 2,550 Nm of torque. Its power courses through either an 8 or 8+1-speed Range-Change Gearbox, or a 12 or 12+1 Range-Splitter Gearbox. Scania’s Rear Axle gears are also configurable. Single-driven gearsets hold up to 80 tons, while the tandem-driven gearsets can go all the way up to 210 tons.
As for axle configurations, the S-Series is offered in 4x2, 4x4, 6x2, 6x2/2, 6x2/4, 6x4, and 6x6 for the tractor bodies. Rigid S-Series bodies expand on that range with 4x2, 4x4, 6x2, 6x2/2, 6x2/4, 6x4, 6x6, 8x2, 8x2*6, 8x2/4, 8x4, 8x4*4, and 10x4*6 axle configurations.
Scania offers its customers a premium body-building service that includes the full suite of instructions, drawings, details, equipment, tools, certificates, and online resources to help owners get seamlessly started with their operations.
