LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Peterbilt has added to its vocational and medium-duty truck lineups with the introduction of the Models 367, 365, 330 and 340.
On the vocational side, the Models 367 and 365 will join the Peterbilt truck lineup.
“The reliability, durability and productivity and Peterbilt’s vocational models have made them the preferred work trucks for a wide range of demanding applications,” said Peterbilt general manager, Dan Sobic. “The Model 367 and 365 take these characteristics to an even higher level. They will be among the industry’s most versatile vocational vehicles and both will be available in set-forward and set-back front axle positions to comply with various state and federal bridge law requirements.”
The Model 367 will be available in a heavy-haul configuration featuring a high-capacity cooling system capable of cooling the highest horsepower engines available, Sobic added.
Landon Sproull, chief engineer with Peterbilt, added the new chassis design allows for improved axle placement, improving maneuverability and weight distribution.
“The new chassis also improves ride and handling characteristics for enhanced operator comfort and productivity,” he said.
Both the 367 and 365 feature a new bumper that can accommodate both a center hook configuration and a dual, removable pin configuration that each meet TMC towing requirements. The new models also feature a new forward lighting system providing a 50 per cent improvement in low-beam performance and a 600 per cent extension in bulb life, the company said.
Peterbilt’s medium-duty lineup has also been expanded with the introduction of the Model 330 and 340.
“The Model 330 and Model 340 join our award-winning Model 335 to provide our customers with medium-duty operations more choices than ever before,” said Sobic. “The full range of Class 6 and 7 medium-duty truck GVWs will be available, accommodating everythying from urban pickup and delivery to rugged construction applications.”
The 330 is a lightweight Class 6 configuration available with GVWs up to 26,000 lbs. It can be fitted with hydraulic brakes and low-profile tires making it operable by non-CDL drivers.
The 340 is available in 33,000 and higher GVWs and is best-suited for vocational, municipal and specialty applications. The new medium-duty trucks will be available this summer.
