DENTON, Tex. — Prospector, Peterbilt’s new vehicle configuration and ordering computer program, has been re-engineered and is now in use throughout the Peterbilt dealer network.

Bringing a new level of ease to the truck spec’ing process, Peterbilt says Prospector allows customers to work with their dealership to configure and order vehicles custom built to their exact specifications and business requirements, regardless of the application.

The newly released spec’ing tool helps ensure optimum compatibility for all component parts, and through frequent, online updates, provides the most up-to-date spec’ing options available.

“As a custom truck manufacturer serving a wide array of markets, Peterbilt provides its customers with many possible vehicle configurations to help ensure they operate a vehicle that meets their needs,” says Dan Sobic, Peterbilt assistant general manager.

“Prospector helps ensure those needs are met by identifying the optimum vehicle configuration for an application, as well as account for all applicable highway and bridge laws. Additionally, build specifications for all of a customer’s previously ordered vehicles can be quickly retrieved through Prospector and used or modified to order new vehicles.”
