The Scania G/P/R-Series, formerly Scania 4-series, is a truck model range which was produced by Scania in 1995 as the 1996 model. It was the successor of the 3-series and it came in five engine combinations and four chassis types. Production of Scania 4-series was stopped after its successors P-series, R-series and G-series were starting in 2004.
- Engine size
The engine sizes are - as usual for the 1-4 series - shown in the model name with a number constructed by the cylinder volume in litres followed by the generation of truck. This way a 14 litre engine in the 4-series will be a 144.
- Chassis type
The letter, following the number describes the chassis type, but in the 4-series this code changed compared to former series (L, D, C and G in 4-series). The 3-digit number on the opposite corner in the front stands for horse power. This ranged up to 530 bhp, dwarfed by Scania's top of the line truck with 730 bhp.
The 4-series changed the well-known Scania front look from quite square and lined to new round and curved shapes. The new cab design also split the grill in two horizontally, making the lower part flip down to make a step usable for better reach when cleaning windows or eventually as a bench while waiting somewhere.
The 4-series was succeeded by the R/P/G-series in 2004. This is technically the 5-series. Chassis type and engine size are no longer visible on the front side in 5-series.
