Mighty HD65 and HD72: Safe, dependable partners for your business
Since the Hyundai Bakkie entered the competitive LCV market in 1997 Hyundai has established itself firmly amongst small-businesses with a need for reliable, versatile transport. The diesel Bakkie took on far more established competitors and proved itself a viable option with a long list of standard benefits.
Now, in addition to the standard Bakkie, and the Tipper, Hyundai has introduced the new upgraded Euro 2 Mighty trucks, aimed at business operators as well as bigger fleet owners in need of a versatile and reliable vehicle for their daily operations.
The new Mighty HD65 and HD72 are powered by a 3,9-litre turbo diesel engine and offer all the reliability and hard working attributes associated with Hyundai commercial vehicles. Its versatile nature and low maintenance make it a useful tool for enhancing the productivity of all businesses in need of a reliable 3 and 4-ton truck.
Enhanced safety, style and performance:
Equipped with a safety Cab the Mighty HD trucks offer excellent protection in the event of a collision. Visibility has been improved by enlarging both the windscreen, wiper sweep area and the specification of high-luminosity headlamps which sport a stylish look. Exterior dimensions of the Cab were maximised to provide a roomy interior. Overhead storage consoles and more generous adjustment ranges for the seat sliding mechanism and seatback reclining angle, contribute greatly to improved comfort and convenience.
The D4DB 3.9-litre turbo charged inter-cooled engine is quiet, clean and efficient, resulting in great economy and durability.
Comfortable and cosy interior space:
Driver fatigue is an unavoidable fact of truck driving. Long-distance hauls and heavy stop-and-go city traffic will put any driver’s endurance to the test. But with the new Mighty HD series, Hyundai has taken a major step forward in creating a driving environment offering a new level of comfort.
By consulting professional drivers and listening carefully to their needs, Hyundai has come up with a highly comfortable interior package that takes the stress and strain out of daily driving.
Making the biggest difference are features such as increased headroom and legroom, a bucket-type driver’s seat that evenly distributes pressure across the back and bottom and a curved cockpit-styled instrument panel.
Impressively low NVH performance figures were attained through a combination of factors including the application of the very latest NVH testing equipment and the use of an electronic cab analysis system. Large reductions in NVH levels were obtained by removing the roof water drip rails as well as by specifying a molded door panel instead of the previous welded one. To reduce wind noise, the corner vane has been removed and the door opening gap has been reduced to 4,3 mm. In addition, triple door seals were applied and more sound deadening material has been installed.
Power and reliability
Power and reliability define the true value of a truck and that is what makes Hyundai trucks so appealing. For the most economical performance, the D4DB turbocharged engine produces a maximum output of 95 kW @ 2 900 rpm and displaces 372 Nm @1 800 rpm. And with impressively low NVH figures, it delivers remarkably quiet and civilised performance.
The D4DB turbocharged inter-cooled engine has a built in turbo protector. The result of the inter-cooled engine is a flat torque curve allowing for a better torque range, giving the HDs better durability under load, improved economy and superior performance.
Maintenance and service
Regular preventive maintenance reduces service and repair costs by as much as 25%. For easier, speedier maintenance and repair, the truck cab tilts to convenient 45 degrees. Finally, all Hyundai trucks are backed up by Hyundai’s commitment to first-class customer care and a first class parts distribution network.
The Truck has a 1 year/60 000km service plan and a standard 2 year/unlimited mileage manufacturer’s warranty. Service intervals on the Mighty HD is every 10 000 km.
