ATLANTA — Peterbilt showcased its on-highway Model 579 featuring new exterior options and the proprietary PACCAR Powertrain during the 2019 edition of the American Trucking Associations Technology Maintenance Council (TMC) annual meeting in here.
“Peterbilt’s presence at the TMC Annual Meeting is always an opportunity to connect with many of our loyal customers and showcase new products and services” said Robert Woodall, assistant general manager-sales and marketing. “Fleet executives and their teams come to TMC to get the latest industry insights in fleet performance and uptime. We are glad to have those conversations and highlight how our current portfolio of products and services delivers excellent performance that contributes to greater profitability for them.”
The Peterbilt booth featured two Model 579s equipped with the advanced PACCAR Powertrain, Peterbilt’s most fuel-efficient option. One of the trucks was the company’s UltraLoft integral sleeper featuring the new Blackout Exterior Package.
“The Blackout Exterior Package is designed to further increase the driver appeal of the Model 579 UltraLoft,” Woodall said. “The unique look of the package adds to the already winning combination of bold Peterbilt styling and superior driver comfort of the UltraLoft.”
The Blackout Exterior Package includes an exclusive black effect exterior paint for the cab and sleeper, Dura-Black aluminum wheels and a black finish grille crown. The package is available for order immediately. Peterbilt customers can also order the black finish grille crown and Dura-Black aluminum wheels as standalone options with any exterior color.
