Special Edition Model 567 Heritage Pays Tribute to Peterbilt’s Roots

Peterbilt’s new Model 567 Heritage salutes the company’s beginnings by combining its most modern and technologically advanced work truck with distinctive styling and exclusive features inside and out, Peterbilt Motors Company recently announced. “Peterbilt’s Model 567 Heritage elevates the classic styling of Peterbilt with a package of unique features that will command attention on highways and jobsites,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President. “The Model 567 Heritage appeals to owner-operators and premium carriers who want to reward their drivers and add distinction to their fleets. The Heritage delivers proven productivity, uptime and value with a look and feel that is like no other truck on the road.” The Model 567 Heritage pays tribute to Peterbilt’s roots, Siver said, by delivering a robust workhorse with a head-turning, customized appearance.

The Model 567 Heritage is configured with a 121-inch BBC and set-forward front axle (SFFA) – the industry’s most modern SFFA truck – to optimize payloads and weight distribution. It can be spec’d as a day cab or with a 72- or 80-inch sleeper.

Exterior features of the Model 567 Heritage include: Bright bumper, grille bars, exhaust stacks, mirrors and sunvisor; Chromed air intake bezel and metal hood latches; Polished rocker panels, quarter-fender closeout panels, fender brace and brackets, battery boxes and fuel tanks; and Special Heritage badging, uniquely numbered and mounted to the grille and sleeper (when applicable) for the first production trucks. Inside the cab, the Model 567 Heritage has exclusive features and branding that includes: Platinum-level Heritage Brown interior with a black dash top and wood-finish trim; Premium brown leather seats with accent stitching to complement the cab design and embroidered Heritage logo in the headrest; and Door pads with brown wood trim.

For Model 567 Heritage trucks equipped with a sleeper, wood trim accents continue on the sleeper cabinets and storage compartments. The two-tone sleeper back wall is embroidered with the Heritage logo. “The Model 567 Heritage takes a place among Peterbilt’s most iconic trucks,” Siver said. “Through unparalleled performance and distinctive design, it builds upon decades of groundbreaking models and furthers our proud tradition of providing trucks with industry-leading quality and value.” The Model 567 Heritage is available now for order through Peterbilt dealerships with production scheduled for September.

Daimler Makes Fully Electric Heavy Trucks A Reality

Daimler Makes Fully Electric Heavy Trucks A Reality

The parent company of Mercedes revealed today the Urban eTruck along with their plans to launch an all-electric heavy truck five years from now. The Mercedes prototype is based on a heavy-duty three-axle distribution truck, but with a totally revised drivetrain. The conventional components have been replaced by an electrically driven rear axle with a pair of electric motors mounted directly to the wheel hubs. Maximum power is set at 335hp (2x125kW) with peak torque at 737lb ft (1000Nm). The battery pack consists of three modules of lithium-ion batteries with a total capacity of 212 kWh, giving the Urban eTruck a driving range of up to 124 miles (200km), enough for a typical day’s delivery round.

Thanks to the modularity of the battery pack, Mercedes will be able to add or remove batteries depending on the desired driving range. The Urban eTruck can be connected to a charger using the Europe-wide standardized Combined Charging System (CCS) Type 2 connector. Thanks to the 100kW charging power, the batteries can be fully charged from empty in two to three hours. A proper production version is estimated for launch by the start of the next decade, offering a payload as much as 26 metric tons.

VDL company will build 100% electric tractor

Dutch company VDL is planning to build a 100% electric driven truck for city distribution. The tractor unit is based on DAF chassis-axles and cabs but will be sold as a VDL product. The tractor units will be able to transport combinations with a gross vehicle weight of 37 tons. That means enough power for city distribution to fill the supermarkets. The electric driven tractor unit will be on the market next year.

Mack unveils first turbine hybrid refuse truck

Mack unveils first turbine hybrid refuse truck

Mack Trucks revealed the first Class 8 refuse truck with Wrightspeed’s turbine supported at WasteExpo 2016. A Mack LR that was retrofitted with the Wrightspeed Route 1000 was on display at the truck manufacturer’s booth inside the Las Vegas Convention Center. Mack is the first OEM that will be testing the alternative driveline.

The Wrightspeed Route powertrain uses electricity to deliver 100 percent of the vehicle’s propulsion. The system features an advanced plug-in-capable battery pack that enables a purely electric range of up to 24 miles. When the batteries’ charge is depleted, an 80 kW, fuel agnostic Fulcrum Turbine Generator, which can operate on natural gas or diesel fuel, recharges the batteries, enabling Route-equipped vehicles to have unlimited range with refueling. Additional recharging comes from the Route’s 730 kW regenerative braking system, which generates electricity as the vehicle comes to a stop. Regenerative braking helps Route-equipped vehicles to cut down on maintenance costs, as braking force – and subsequent brake wear – is significantly decreased.

Electricity from the battery pack powers four Geared Traction Drive (GTD) electric motors, enabling the Route powertrain to power vehicles up to 66,000 pounds on grades as steep as 40 percent. With full torque available from zero rpm, the Route provides a driving experience comparable to diesel-powered trucks.
