peterbilt567At the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky, Peterbilt took the wraps off of its new Model 567 vocational truck Tuesday, according to a report from our sister publication CCJ.

The 567 is available in 121-inch and 115-inch BBC configurations, in a day cab or with a selection of detachable sleeper configurations.
Three sleeper sizes are also available: 44 inches, 77 inches and 80 inches.

More features from the 567 include

  • Durable, newly designed aluminum cab.
  • Metton hood that absorbs many impacts that would crack other materials.
  • Improved lighting, including projector module low beams with 2,000-hour lifecycle.
  • Improved windshield visibility.
  • Chassis design that is lighter but stiffer, and that improves maneuverability for operating in congested worksites.
