   The MAN HX58 is a tactical military truck. Vehicle has a 6x6 configuration. This military truck is in service with Germany, New Zealand and UK. The United Kingdom ordered about 500 of the MAN HX58 trucks in various versions. First vehicles were delivered in 2007. It replaced the Bedford TM 6-6 heavy utility truck in the British Army service. New Zealand operates approximately 60 HX58 military trucks. These trucks have expected service life of 20 years. In the MAN HX range there are also HX60 (4x4) and HX77 (8x8) tactical military trucks.

   Essentially this military truck is a successor to the MAN KAT 1 with 6x6 configuration. The HX58 has a payload capacity of 9 t. It is available as a general purpose cargo vehicle, artillery tractor or tanker.

   The cab accommodates driver and two passengers. The same cab is used across the HX and SX ranges of military trucks. Vehicle is available with Modular Armor Cabin (MAC) or heavier Integrated Armored Cabin (IAC). The MAC cabin provides protection against 7.62x39 mm armor-piercing rounds and withstands 6 kg anti-tank mine blast under any wheel. The IAC protects against 7.62x52 mm armor-piercing rounds and withstands 8 kg anti-tank mine blast anywhere under the hull.

   The MAN HX range uses a number of automotive components of the civilian MAN TGA heavy truck range. This truck has good cross-country mobility. Vehicle is powered by a MAN D2066 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 440 hp. It meets EURO IV emission requirements. It is coupled with a 12-speed automatic gearbox. Engine and radiator are located behind the cab. This feature allowed to reduce height of the vehicle. Also such location prevents damage of the radiator or blockage with mud. Maximum road speed is electronically limited to 88 km/h. With preparation this tactical truck fords water obstacles up to 1.5 m deep. It can operate in temperature range from -32C to +49C. The HX58 can be fitted with an arctic kit for operation down to -46C.

   The MAN HX61 is an air-portable version of the HX58 with a shorter wheelbase. It can be airlifted by the C-130 Hercules cargo aircraft with little preparation. The HX80 is a tractor truck version.
