New Peterbilt based on award-winning truck
Jan 1, 2007 12:00 PM
Peterbilt is introducing a new cabover, the Model 220, based on the 2002 “International Truck of the Year.”
The Model 220 will initially be offered in Class 7 truck configurations and will be limited to 100 units. Full production and distribution is scheduled for late 2007, at which time a Class 6 configuration will be provided.
“The Model 220 is based on the award-winning design of the DAF LF, a European market leader for our sister company DAF Trucks, which introduced the vehicle in 2001,” says Dan Sobic, Peterbilt general manager and Paccar vice-president. DAF is a subsidiary of Bellevue WA-based Paccar Inc.
The DAF LF received the International Truck of the Year honor from an international jury of truck journalists representing 20 European nations. This annual award is given to the new truck that “makes the best contribution to the development of the transport of goods by road in countries involved in the poll.”
