Peterbilt Begins Production on 579

Peterbilt is now producing the new Model 579 that was launched during the Mid-America Trucking Show, with the first vehicles being built for Peterbilt and PacLease dealers.

"This is truly a historic occasion for our Peterbilt Denton production team," said Bill Kozek, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President.

The new 2.1-meter aluminum cab is solid and durable, with the highest quality fit and finish. Available in a day cab, or with detachable sleeper, the Model 579 combines versatility and longevity of a second life for a high resale value. And, with the integrated PACCAR MX 12.9-liter engine, Model 579 customers benefit from a total vehicle solution that is designed for their operational needs.

"After years of research, product development, capital investments, customer input, and vehicle testing, this final result is a combination of total performance innovation and highest quality," said Kozek. "This vehicle is truly one that delivers confidence and efficiency for bottom-line driven companies."
