On the exterior, the Model 579’s highly advanced aerodynamic hood, bumper and mirrors are not only good-looking but hard-working, delivering up to a 7% improvement in fuel economy. Inside the cab, innovative technologies like the new 15" digital display, customizable gauges, lane-keeping assistance and enhanced collision mitigation make driving the Model 579 a pleasure. All while the integrated PACCAR Powertrain is delivering superior performance and a lower cost of ownership.
