The newest addition to Peterbilt’s vehicle lineup—the vocational Model 567, which can be configured to meet a wide range of heavy- and severe-duty applications—is now in full production.
“Assembly is in full swing for the Model 567 with strong demand for our new model in many different markets. The durability and versatility of the Model 567 make it ideal for dump, mixer, heavy haul and refuse applications,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt Director of Sales and Marketing.
Peterbilt unveiled the new model earlier this year during the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky. It was developed through the most extensive product research and development in the company’s long history of vocational models and endured rigorous testing at the PACCAR Technical Center in Mount Vernon, Wash.
“Peterbilt’s Model 567 can be ordered in 121- and 115-inch BBC lengths with a wide variety of heavy-duty components and axle configurations for increased payloads and optimized weight distribution,” said Woodall. “It has a set-back front axle that provides excellent maneuverability and a tight turning radius. Combined with the panoramic view from the cab, operators will enjoy enhanced visibility and productivity throughout virtually every jobsite condition.”
The Model 567 is standard with the PACCAR MX-13 Engine with up to 500 horsepower and 1,850 lb-ft of torque and can be ordered as a day cab or with Peterbilt’s complete line-up of detachable sleepers.
The Model 567’s chassis is designed to maximize strength while minimizing weight for increased payload capacity. The chassis is 10 to 15 percent stiffer than comparable products for improved maneuverability, ride and handling. The clean frame rails facilitate ease of installation for various bodies, auxiliary axles and hydraulic tanks.
