Featuring a more robust, streamlined design, Peterbilt has debuted its new chassis routings for the models 579 and 567 that improve serviceability.

Peterbilt Model 579The new chassis routings – which run the length of the truck – organize air, electrical, and fuel lines into individual bundles to facilitate quick, efficient identification and servicing of these systems. The routings are secured with newly designed frame brackets that hold each bundle separately and provide even greater durability.

The new routings are said to be simple and optimized for greater robustness and ease of maintenance. The company says it benchmarked leading designs to engineer the “most modern chassis routings in the industry.”

This new configuration is currently in production.
