Together with a partner, an agreement was reached to create a new product line based on the KAMAZ chassis of the K5 family.

As the KAMAZ’s General Director, Sergey Kogogin, told in an interview with Prime agency, a new-generation tractor KAMAZ-54901 is already being produced in test mode in Naberezhnye Chelny, vehicles from pilot industrial lots will be transferred to large transport companies for test operation this year. Serial production of vehicles of the new K5 family will begin the next year.

The first model of a promising lineup will be the KAMAZ-54901 premium-segment trunk truck. The main field of application of the latest KAMAZ-54901 main truck with a fundamentally new cab is the towing of semi-trailers on roads for various purposes that have a hard surface. The standard equipment of KAMAZ-54901 includes an improved comfortable cab with a width of 2500 mm with a flat floor, a new in-line engine KAMAZ P6 with a capacity of 450 HP and a 12-speed automated gearbox.

Also among the features of the new items it can be noted the increased fuel reserve to 1400 liters, the service interval to 120 thousand km, load control on the drive axle. The technical condition of the vehicle and its location can be monitored through the satellite monitoring and control system for the operation of ITIS-KAMAZ vehicles. As previously reported, at the end of 2020 it is planned to launch the second model of the K5 family - the KAMAZ-6595 dump truck, which is adapted for work in the construction sector.
