Chinese truck maker Sinotruk Group has unveiled an updated model Huanghe X7, writes the “Chinese Cars” publication. The brand’s flagship is now powered by some of the world’s most powerful gas engines.

The new power plants of Sinotruk Huanghe X7 with a working volume of 15 liters – the WP15NG500E61 and WP15NG530E61 models – produce 500 or 530 horsepower, respectively. Both engines comply with Euro 6 environmental standards.

Previously, the most powerful gas engines available on the Chinese market produced no more than 480 hp. Similar power plants in the European market are available from Iveco – 12.9 liters and 460 hp, Scania – 12.7 liters and 410 hp, and Volvo Trucks – 12.8 liters and 420 or 460 hp. c.

For the Sinotruk Huanghe X7 LNG model, there are several ways to install fuel tanks: for example, two large tanks behind the cab or cryogenic tanks on the side of the chassis. The first installation option makes it possible to achieve a greater range, but increases the center of gravity and reduces the size of the semi-trailer allowed for use. The second installation option is less “long-range”, but does not “eat up” the useful volume of the semi-trailer, and also does not change the center of gravity.

Recall that the Sinotruk Huanghe X7 tractor appeared on the Chinese market in September last year and attracted attention with its futuristic exterior. According to the developer, this model is the most aerodynamic truck on the planet, while the shape of the cabin of the car makes it possible to save up to 10% of fuel.

    Although it is definitely an unfinished replica, I would be interested in contact details, anyway. Maybe this could be an interesting project.
