Peterbilt has unveiled a limited-edition Model 389X, building on many of the styling features associated with the Model 389.

Features of the truck include a highly polished hood crown surrounding a classic-style, louvered grille sheet inspired by the first 1939 Peterbilt. The hood features a brightly polished centerline trim, exclusive side-hood chrome accents, and polished hood fenders.

Other bright features include cowl skirts, battery box, fuel tanks, sun visor, bumper and seven-inch chrome exhaust stacks.

The brightness is not limited to the polished materials. The exterior lighting package includes LED amber light strips to shine on the air cleaners and under rocker panels.

The mudflaps, cab and sleeper will be marked with 389X exterior badges.

Inside the cab, the dash panels will feature a new Black Pearl burl woodgrain, while black trim accents will be found throughout.

Other features include chrome grab handles, a 389X emblem on the shifter plate, embroidered 389X badges on the headrests, and badges on the sleeper backwall.

Each 389X includes a serialized, chrome dash plate showing the truck’s production number – only 1,389 of the trucks will be made.

They can be ordered as a day cab or with a 72- or 78-inch sleeper.
