ABA5 helps to avoid or mitigate collisions with pedestrians (at speeds up to 50km/h) and other vehicles (at speeds up to 80km/h) by using a high-definition camera and radar in combination to monitor the road ahead. If there is risk of collision with a vehicle or pedestraian detected in the road ahead, ABA5 triggers a visual and audio warning and initiates partial braking, if the driver doesn’t respond, full emergency braking and hazard lights are autonomously initiated to prevent or minimise a collision.

Maximum power and efficiency
Shogun is about precision, efficiency and performance – and its Detroit designed OM engine range is at the heart of it. Every engine is rated Euro 6 minimum, which means noxious gases and particulate matter are near zero in the exhaust. Advanced SCR technology, improved exhaust gas recirculation and increased particulate filtration help meet these stringent standards, which exceed current NZ requirements.
What’s more, the impressive power capability of the OM engine range is employed by a three-stage Jake brake for superior deceleration.
At the top of the food chain is the 13-litre, Detroit Diesel-derived OM471 engine of the Shogun 510, featuring twin overhead camshafts, a common-rail injection system with second-generation X-Pulse pressure booster, and asymmetric exhaust gas turbocharger for optimal output. With broad power and torque delivery, the OM471 knocks out a hefty 2,500Nm (1844lb/ft) torque from around 900rpm to produce exceptional performance in the toughest conditions NZ can throw at it.
Don’t just take our word for it: “The 2,500Nm […] peaks at just 900rpm and then continues at that level through to almost 1,500rpm, which is right in the driving sweet spot for a big, heavily loaded truck that has to cope with the diverse New Zealand roading landscape. If you need to push the revs a little higher, there’s still 90% of peak torque available out to 1,600rpm. Nice.” – John Ellegard, NZ Truck & Driver
With their Detroit heritage, the 11-litre Euro 6 OM470 engines offer legendary torque delivery (up to 2,000Nm or 2,200Nm) and the ability to hang in there when the going gets tough, with maximum power (up to 400hp or 460hp) more or less constantly across a broad engine range. These exceptionally efficient engines feature in 6x4, 8x4 and Tractor models.
Like the OM471, twin overhead camshafts, a common-rail injection system with second-generation X-Pulse pressure booster, and asymmetric exhaust gas turbocharger combine to deliver optimal output.
Our compact and lightweight 8-litre JP17 rated OM936 engine has a high output to displacement ratio, providing efficient, effective power delivery and exceptional fuel economy, resulting in a low carbon footprint.
Advanced compound twin turbos ensure torque is available from down low and builds strongly throughout the rev range, returning peak figures of 360hp/1,400Nm. The flexibility of this power delivery is further enhanced by the 12-speed AMT with Eco Roll and Skip Shift functions.
Home safely after every shift
The 2022 Shogun range features key improvements to its already strong safety credentials, making it the class leader among Japanese brands with a broad range of advanced active crash-prevention technology and passive systems to help avoid or mitigate on-road accidents.
Other safety improvements include LED daytime-running lights and auto high beam to improve visibility when there’s no traffic ahead.

ACTIVE BRAKE ASSIST 5 (ABA5)
LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM
LDWS operates at speeds over 60km/h to reduce the risk of lane departure accidents caused by distraction or fatigue.
A camera behind the windscreen detects lane markings and triggers visual and audio alerts if the vehicle crosses without the indicator deployed or an intended steering wheel movement.
ACTIVE ATTENTION ASSIST (DRIVER FATIGUE MONITORING)
This system employs a range of inputs from monitoring steering behaviour, the truck’s path between lane markings and the driver’s head position and eye movement to register signs of driver fatigue and issue an alert if these are detected.
ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC)
ESC employs a steering sensor and yaw rate sensor to detect loss of control or the onset of rollover. This information is relayed to the ESC controller, which reduces engine torque and applies appropriate brake force to individual wheels to aid steering control and improve stability.
PROXIMITY CONTROL ASSIST (ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL)
Automatically adapts the truck’s speed through accelerator and brake control to maintain safe proximity to the vehicle in front.
The system incorporates a stop-and-go function, which brings the truck to a complete stop if the vehicle in front stops and slowly pulls away when the vehicle in front starts to move ahead. This technology has huge benefits in stop/go traffic and helps reduce driver fatigue.
ACTIVE SIDEGUARD ASSIST
ASA detects moving objects on the left-hand side of the vehicle, triggering an eye-level warning light to attract the driver’s attention to the left-side wing mirrors. If there is a risk of collision, the warning light flashes several times in red. After two seconds, it remains permanently illuminated in red and, in the event of an imminent collision, a warning tone also sounds.
7” TOUCHSCREEN MEDIA UNIT WITH REVERSING CAMERA
This class-leading, new system with steering wheel controls for safe operation, features an on-dash screen, which relays images from the high-definition, infrared reversing camera, and has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility for hands-free talking text-to-speech functionality. It is also compatible with other approved phone apps such as Google Maps and Spotify. Four additional cameras, reverse sensors and tyre pressure monitoring are optional extras, along with truck specific navigation.
Geared for New Zealand
Shogun really is built for New Zealand – equipped with bespoke, super-smart ShiftPilot software, fine-tuned over 160,000km of Kiwi roads to ensure its automated manual transmission (AMT) delivers precisely the right amount of power and torque exactly when they’re needed.
This AMT features 12 forward and two reverse gears with lightning fast 0.6 second gear changes. Drivers will find this smooth and efficient system extremely easy to operate.
Standard and Power modes enable optimal performance in even the most challenging conditions, alongside the fuel-saving Eco Mode 3.0 with Eco Roll and Eco Cruise. Manual mode gives drivers the option to perform on-demand operations as required. Further driver assistance is provided through
Rock Free Mode and Crawler Mode.
