Every Peterbilt truck is designed and built to operate efficiently and stay on the road for the long haul. Below are just some of the features that make each and every Peterbilt truck top of its class when it comes to efficiency.
The PACCAR Powertrain
The PACCAR Powertrain found inside Peterbilt trucks has been designed for optimal performance and is crafted using the strongest, yet lightest materials available, ensuring your truck will run cleaner, longer and more efficiently. The PACCAR engine’s High Pressure Common Rail Fuel Injection improves efficiency and lowers emissions while the PACCAR 12-speed transmission has been streamlined to provide the perfect blend of power and next-level fuel economy.
EPIQ technologies available for the Model 579 work in tandem with the PACCAR MX-13 engine, PACCAR Automated Transmission and PACCAR rear axle to enhance fuel economy and aerodynamic efficiency, resulting in up to 8% improved fuel efficiency.
SmartAir™ No-Idle Climate System
The SmartAir™ system available for the Model 579 and Model 567 is powered by four AGM batteries to keep sleeper cabs cool and comfortable for up to 10 hours, all while lowering fuel costs and cutting emissions. The technology integrates with existing sleeper HVAC systems and uses 70% less fuel than diesel-based auxiliary power units and charges 25% faster than similar systems.
