Peterbilt's new Model 220 is now in full production.
DENTON, Texas — Peterbilt has announced its new medium-duty cabover Model 220 is now in full production.
The truck is being produced in Mexicali, Mexico and can be ordered in a Class 6/7 configuration.
“The new Model 220 brings customers greater levels of productivity. Drivers will enjoy enhanced maneuverability that shortens the curb-to-curb turning radius by 30% and the new, standard electronic braking system (EBS) for improved braking performance,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt director of sales and marketing. “These characteristics combine with an efficient bumper-to-bumper length of 35 feet for added agility while still delivering an extra 45 inches of payload area and a frame rail system that can be upfitted with bodies ranging from 16 to 28 feet. It is extremely versatile and will exceed expectations in every application, from urban pick-up-and delivery to refuse, and from landscaping to street sweeping and striping.”
The Model 220 is powered by the Paccar PX-7 engine with up to 260 hp and 520 lb.-ft. of torque. It comes standard with an Allison transmission featuring a push-button shifter.
