The Iveco Powerstar has a practical, comfortable interior in both the day and sleeper cabs. The Active Day (AD) and Active Time (AT) have flat floors to give you more room and make movement in the cab easy. The wrap-around console design in both cabs puts the controls such as air-conditioning, park brake, trailer brake, diff locks and rear suspension dump at your fingertips.

  • 90º opening doors
  • Non-slip steps up to cab
  • Aerodynamic powered and heated mirrors
  • IVECO Colour Display (ICD) instrument panel
  • Climate control air conditioning
  • Noise abatement insulation
  • Custom comfort options include leather seats and in-cab fridge

  • 2.3 metre wide sleeper cab with one-piece comfort bunk with inner spring mattress, supported by slats
  • 56 inch distance from seat to rear sleep wall
  • 100 litre sliding storage box that can double as a handy table
  • A foldable tray available for the back wall

The Iveco Powerstar has two engine choices, with a variety of horsepower ratings available. There are also 3 transmission choices to customize your truck set-up to your needs.

Cylinder Capacity12.9 litres
Cab ApplicationAT-AD

Cab ApplicationAT-AD

Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT)

All engines are equipped with VGT, an optimized turbocharger that significantly contributes to the engine performance. It allows permanent control of the turbine speed, and so boosts pressure which is connected to the engine’s power and torque. It also boosts performance of the decompression engine brake.

Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR)

The 15 litre Cummins ISX is ADR 80/03 complaint and uses EGR to meet emissions compliance. It is a simple sub-system on the engine that makes no changes to the proven ISX engine design.

Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)

All Cursor engines Euro 5 compliant and are fitted with SCR technology for exhaust gas after treatment to reduce emissions into the atmosphere. It involves the use of highly efficient engines, a catalytic converter, and a special reservoir for the reducing fluid (AdBlue). The system benefits not only the environment, but also the productivity of the truck; more power, more torque, lower fuel consumption and less oil changes for the mileage.


The Powerstar transmissions options include:

  • 6400 – 12 or 16 speed ZF Eurotronic Automated, or Eaton Roadranger
  • 7200 – 16 speed ZF Eurotronic Automated or Eaton Roadranger 18 speed manual
  • 7800 – Eaton Roadranger 18 speed manual

The 12 or 16 speed Eurotronic Automated ZF transmission operates with electronic clutch control. The automatic software selects the ideal ratio and protects the transmission against over-revving, thereby reducing clutch wear and fuel consumption. The gear level on the steering column and the switches on the dashboard both allow for easy gear changes.


The Iveco Powerstar is equipped with a high-tensile steel frame, designed in Australia to meet our demanding operating environment. The design offers strength and durability while also providing tare weight advantages.


Choose from three suspension options with the Powerstar, depending on your truck model:

  • 6400 – Hendrikson Primaax PAX-462 or HAS-460 air bag suspension
  • 7200 – Hendrikson Primaax PAX-462 air bag suspension
  • 7800 – Iveco Cantilever suspension

In the 7800, Meritor rear axles sit on the increased axles spread of the 56-inch cantilever suspension, with the front 6.5 tonne Meritor axles supported on parabolic springs.


The Powerstar braking system incorporates ABS and the Anti-Slip Reduction (ASR) system. This stops truck wheels from slipping when speeds increase, or when driving on slippery roads or up steep slopes. Front Knorr disc brakes are standard on all models, while rear Knorr disc brakes are optionally available.
