CLEAN AND FUEL EFFICIENT

Peterbilt now offers a compressed natural gas (CNG) configuration for the Model 579, providing short and long haul customers with the industry’s most innovative, advanced vehicles with new state-of-the-art CNG systems. The Cummins Westport ISX12 G engine complies with all EPA 2013 and CARB emission regulations and is available with ratings of 320-400 horsepower and 1,150-1,450 lb. foot of torque. This CNG platform joins Peterbilt’s family of alternative fuel vehicles, forming the industry’s most comprehensive environmentally responsible lineup.

FIT AND FINISH

The Model 579 is built to last. We made the new aluminum cab solid and durable, with the highest quality fit and finish. An in-mold process embeds color directly onto the dash for a long-lasting finish that virtually eliminates fading, scratching and peeling. Electrical wiring carriages support wiring and reduce wear and tear, adding to the overall durability of the components.

CAB

By designing our new cab around the driver, we’ve created an environment that drivers want to be in. The result is a spacious and ergonomic cab interior designed to put everything in reach and with the driver in mind. A new driver display package features large, easy-to-read, operation-critical gauges. The multi-function steering wheel features convenient access to cruise control and audio controls. Switches are backlit for enhanced nighttime visibility. Peterbilt’s SmartNav system, an integrated telematics and infotainment system, provides real-time truck monitoring, truck-specific navigation, hands-free Bluetooth connectivity and satellite radio.
