The July issue of Truck & Driver is out now! British truck special + awesome trucks from Scania, MAN, Volvo, Renault, Kenworth & more

This month’s issue turns the spotlight on the final years of British manufacturing with a special in-depth report looking at the trials, tribulations and final years of our truck makers. Not only that, but we also have a double feature on possibly the finest ERF ECX and Foden Alpha in the country PLUS we spend a day with the legendary Les Baston and his 39-year old Seddon Atkinson.

Cam Davies and Oliver Parry’s family run companies both have long histories with ERF and Foden

Our Editor’s Choice for this issue is a truck with plenty of British heritage – the DAF XF. This 90th anniversary example is adorned with full airbrushing from the Greatest Showman!

Our Editor’s Choice is ABH’s superb 90th anniversary DAF XF

We also go to visit the hard grafting MAN tipper fleet of JR Humble, high in the Weardale hills. This feature was originally destined for our owner-driver issue. Read all about a family firm that’s moved with the times and modernised, while still retaining their traditional values of hard work and good service.

MAN TGS and TGX trucks are the vehicles of choice for JR Humble

We’ve got two superb Scania features in this issue too, with our calendar star this month the immaculate R580 V8 of Scottish-based haulier Burns. Bob Beech also does a thorough assessment of a S500 and S650.

This next-gen V8 has exceeded all expectations for both driver and operator.

And… there’s a Trucker’s Test on the Renault Range-T High, and updates from Team T&D including the second part of Paul O Callaghan’s adventures in Australia. This month he gets handed the keys to this massive, brand new Kenworth.
