Forward control version
The Forward control version was released in 2000, replacing the existing F2000, L2000 and M2000 series. It was initially developed in Germany. The first heavy duty cab was the TGA. Available models included L, LX, XL, XLX, and XXL. After its discontinuation in 2007, the TGA was replaced by the new TGS and TGX models. In addition to a manual transmission, these models are also available with the company's TipMatic automated manual transmission.
The TGL and TGM have been the best selling trucks in the light and medium duty categories since 2005.
Also in 2007, MAN introduced an option for the 16.2 L D28 series turbocharged V8 engine available in the TGX. In 2012 new models were revealed, though these lacked the option of a V8 engine due to a lack of demand. The carryover 15.2 L D38 series in-line six-cylinder engine added into the lineup for 2014, replacing the D28 V8 engine.
In 2016, another updated version was also revealed.
The MAN TGE is a badge engineered version of the second generation Volkswagen Crafter. It is assembled by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in Września, Poland alongside the Crafter. MAN intends to differentiate itself from Volkswagen by offering a higher standard of service that is aimed at professional customers.
