Peterbilt is introducing a new medium-duty cabover, the Model 220, based on Europe’s 2002 Truck of the Year, the DAF LF. Available first as a class 7 machine and limited to 100 units – but not until late in 2007 — the 220 will
also come in a class 6 configuration soon after that.

Headquartered in the Netherlands, DAF is a subsidiary of Washington-based Paccar.

The Model 220 will appeal primarily to customers in urban areas with P&D operations. Details are scarce at this point, but we presume it will come with only Paccar-branded Cummins engines as with Peterbilt’s other medium-duty models next year (see below for details). The LF is exclusively Paccar/Cummins-powered in Europe, though with SCR emission-controls that we may or may not see here in 2010.

At about the same time as the 220 arrives on the scene, we’ll also see a new small cabover from Kenworth, the K360, also based on the DAF LF.
