The brand new October 2020 issue of Truck & Driver is out now! Roadtests of the latest trucks from DAF, Volvo & MAN, sweet Scanias, the Convoy Mack & loads more!

Following on from last month’s bumper-sized issue we’ve gone to town again with this one. Brand new trucks from Volvo and MAN get put to the test, we spend a week tramping in a DAF XF and there’s a huge mix of superb trucks from new to old. Without further ado, let’s run through all the great features we have. At £3.99 for 100 pages, T&D is by far the biggest, best value and most truckilicious magazine out there.
