Build Your Own Model 579

Spec your Model 579

Pick a color, says Peterbilt. Then select a sleeper, or go with a day cab. Fine tune your PACCAR MX-13 engine ratings. You can make the Model 579 of your desire with a new configurator tool available at

The new online configurator lets users build their own Model 579 in a fun, immersive way, says Peterbilt. It lets you design and customize your truck virtually, then save and e-mail an image of it, and contact your nearest Peterbilt dealership for more details.

The configurator tool allows users to select, among others, sleepers, interior trim packages, exterior color, axles, aerodynamic fairings, bright options, and performance levels for the MX-13 engine.

At each step of the selection process, the on-screen vehicle image will change to reflect the users’ choices.

The configurator tool can be selected from the Web site’s home page and on the Model 579 truck page.
