One of the lesser-known models produced by Scania, The T Series is the bonneted truck, easy to spot by its unique bonneted design. Affectionately known among by drivers as the Scania Bullnose, it has a protruding bonnet at the front of what is an otherwise standard Scania cab.
The T Series was never made available for commercial sale in the UK, made for other markets such as mainland Europe and North America. The T Series was made to help accommodate bigger engines, thereby providing more power in front of the wheel for those trucks which need to carry a larger payload. They were made to be the successor to the 4 Series T models, which had been phased out back in 2004.

Although it is no longer being made, the T Series is still available for sale in some parts of the world, even in the UK where it wasn’t made available for general sale. However, the T Series, where sold, has been altered to cope with driving on UK roads.
T Series models have been very well-received by those who have been able to drive them. Eccentric design apart, they have all the equipment needed in the dashboard, ABSW, a roof deflector and cruise control, something which was a recent innovation for most trucks at the time of production.
The biggest trucks in the T Series range weighed 44 tonnes, as is the case with most other ranges of trucks from Scania. The bigger trucks are recommended, as they’re in their element when lugging around a huge amount of goods, especially over long distances.
Despite its rarity and short lifespan, the Scania T Series is worth a second look, especially for those looking to get themselves a powerful truck capable of doing the biggest possible jobs.
