The 2 Series range of trucks from Scania is as reliable and versatile as they come. Until it was replaced by the 3 Series in 1987, they were big sellers throughout the 1980s. Today, their popularity still endures, as they can be used for purposes as diverse as fire engines, tippers and even tankers.
The most recent 2 Series trucks were made in in the later part of the last decade before being phased out. They come with a range of cabs including crew cabs, day cabs and even sleeper cabs. New or used, they provide something which can be driven without too many problems, whether for long or short-haul journeys.

The 2 Series P114-380 Tanker is a good example of how wide the range actually is. The 13-speed engine is proof that it can move through the gears when needed, while it’s secure enough to handle a tank full of water or milk.
One of the newer models, the R480 has a payload of some 44 tonnes, making it among the larger vehicles which Scania has produced. The R480 has all the equipment a driver could wish for including air seats, air suspension and a night heater for those longer journeys.
Some of the newer models are compatible with the Euro 4 emission standards, although this cannot be guaranteed with some of the older trucks in the range. If this is a major concern for you, it should be worth looking for a newer 2 Series.
As they’re no longer in production, buying a used 2 Series is likely to be something of a bargain. Searching for spare parts, if needed, isn’t too much of an issue as they’re still a common sight on the roads today.
In a nutshell
With a larger-than-average payload capacity and a high level of versatility, the 2 Series remains a favourite among drivers. Their use as fire engines and tankers in particular make them worth a second look.
