They no longer bother having fluent English speakers presenting machines. Ive no doubt that the narrator worked hard and did his very best but it is very hard work to listen to this. Quite frankly I don't see anything new, only a slight refresh, mainly of styling. If there is anything more, it was certainly either not disclosed or lost in the translation.
The most significant improvement I noticed and which was briefly mentioned was that the cats are relocated below the vertical exhaust pipe rather than inside it, which should surely improve long term running costs due to less and cheaper to replace broken exhausts.

Why should they? Aren't they based in France and broadcasting to a global audience?

In this particular case they are broadcasting to English speakers. There are other videos for non-English speaking countries and people. Why should they? Because they presumably wish to sell their tractors and for that it would be great if their promotional material was rather easier listening and understandable. There are several parts of that video that are very difficult to follow. For instance, is the power boost 30hp, which is what I heard, or 13hp? Previous models have certainly been nearer 13hp than 30. I've listened three times to that claim and I still think I hear 30hp, which isn't impossible or improbable of course.

Next time they might as well have a fisherman from Dunbar, Scotland narrate it if being understandable isn't a priority.

Overall these are very poor promotional efforts in my opinion. They are all fluff and zero substance. Might as well have posted a few photos with no explanation up, as they would be just as informative. The tractors and their dealers deserve better than this.

A half hearted looking new range, they could have made more of an effort with the cab all of the progress with the 8s not filtered down the range, no d7 either, a cheap makeover at best, when jd gobble up another chunk of the mf market share, you can have no sympathy for them, their own bad choices.

I heard 30 hp too
 
Imo its a shame they did not release the 6 and 7 series with a smaller version of the dyna 7 trans, l can live with a revamp of the older cab its better to have a smaller door on the smaller chassis tractors that are going to be climbed in and out of 100 times a day. Just my opinion

If it is one of the Maximo premium models there will be a tab on the base that you need to flip to allow full suspension range. One to allow for and aft. Possibly one to control lateral [sideways] movement on some variants. Then there are the standard controls you get on lesser variants plus seat heating and possibly even blown air ventilation on the very top seats.
