LOUISVILLE, Ky. — In an effort to improve its award-winning model 330’s performance, Peterbilt has introduced a number of new optional features.
“The model 330 is a highly versatile vehicle that is delighting customers in a broad range of fields, such as pickup-and-delivery, beverage, municipal, dump, fire and rescue, crane, mixer, refuse and utility,” says Nick Panza, general manager and Paccar vice-president. “These new options — the Allison transmissions, heavy-duty auxiliary helper spring and axle-mounted parking brake — further increase the model 330’s versatility and value.”
In an effort to make drivers, of any skill level, more productive, the five-speed, automatic Allison 2000 and 2400 series trannies — featuring the ease of two-pedal operation — were additions to the company data sheets, explains Panza.
“Automatic transmissions continue to increase in popularity, particularly in the medium-duty markets,” he adds. “(They) are better suited for less experienced operators, routes with frequent starts and stops, and for navigating both congested urban roadways and tight jobsites.”
