You will always find plenty of used Iveco Stralis trucks for sale at Truckpages. Iveco’s top weight truck from 2002 until its replacement, the S-Way, arrived in 2020, the Stralis has been undervalued in the UK – especially in the used market. This means that canny UK truck buyers should be able to buy a lot of truck for their money.
The Stralis covers the weight range from 19 tonnes GVW to 44 tonnes – both rigid and articulated. The choice of cabs means that urban distribution can be more effective with the 2.28m wide ‘Active Time’ and ‘Active Day’ cabs and long haul transport suited to the 2.48m wide Active Space Cab.
Later Stralis trucks are well designed and engineered and post-2013 versions have the benefit of using SCR only to reach Euro 6. This means no complicated EGR systems that feed the hot exhaust back into the engine that most other truck manufacturers rely on.
Check out the gas versions of the Stralis – either compressed or liquified natural gas (CNG/LNG) that can make a real and immediate impact on the environment in terms of both well to wheel emissions and noise.

Launched as far back as 2002, it used the structural body of the outgoing EuroStar model but a new exterior and interior. The Stralis introduced a choice of cab widths – the 2.28m Active Time/Active Day as well as the 2.48m Active Space Cab. A choice of Cursor 10 or Cursor 13 engines with the 6-cylinder, 10-litre Cursor 10 offering outputs of 400 to 430hp and the 13-litre 6-cylinder Cursor 13 with 480 or an impressive 540hp.
The Stralis was the first truck to fit an automated gearbox as standard – ZF’s 12AS2301 or 16AS2601 for the Cursor 13.
2007 – Facelift for Euro 4/5
Three engine options available in the Cursor 8, 10 and 13 with outputs from 310 to 560hp
2014 Stralis Hi-Way Launched for Euro 6
As with all truck makers, Iveco had to update the Stralis for the new regulations. The big difference was that the Stralis reached the standards only using SCR to clean up emissions, whereas nearly all the other manufacturers used a combination of EGR and SCR.
This meant less reengineering of the cab for increased cooling and a lighter overall truck. Not to mention the money saved in R&D in changing the cab and installing an EGR system.
2016 – Stralis XP Launched
With re-engineered motors, the XP was launched alongside Iveco’s natural gas-powered Stralis NP. Complete with all-new rear axles and a new-generation, 12-speed ZF automated transmission – the ‘Hi-Tronix’ and a revised, lighter rear suspension set up, fuel consumption was greatly improved over the original Euro 6 model – Iveco claimed by nearly 10%.
2019 – Stralis Model replaced by S-Way
With a brand-new cab, Iveco took the opportunity to rebrand their flagship top-weight truck the S-Way. With improved aerodynamics, Iveco claim up to 4% fuel improvement on the old Stralis cab and details such as improving braking distances by up to 15%. Few changes to the driveline from the 2016 upgrades, but the truck looks a lot more modern and would grace any fleet.
