Peterbilt has launched new options for its Model 382, truck or tractor, offering higher axle ratings, horsepower and torque configurations to an expanded market range. Aimed at regional and short-haul applications, the 382  is also suited to meet many municipal, construction, refuse, fire service, and emergency specs.

New options include: the Cummins ISL9 engine with REPTO functionality; front axles rated up to 20,000 lb; rear axles rated up to 46,000 lb; frame-rail options up to 11-5/8 in.; the Bendix ESP stability system; plus Hendrickson, Reyco, and Chalmers rear suspension choices.

The Cummins ISL9 engine is said to offer one of the highest power-to-weight ratios in its class. Ratings range from 345-380 hp with a maximum 1300 lb ft of torque.

The 382 claims excellent maneuverability with its 50-degree wheel cut, and its sloped hood provides optimal visibility. The truck’s advanced forward-lighting system is said to produce both a broader and brighter lighted area. Pete also says its HVAC system has been improved and offers additional air flow while reducing maintenance costs.
