PETERBILT MODELS 579, 567 NOW AVAILABLE WITH LNG POWER
(March 25, 2015)
Peterbilt Motors Company is expanding its portfolio of natural-gas powered vehicles with the introduction of its Models 579 and 567 in LNG configurations, the company announced during the Mid-America Trucking Show.
“Last year production began on compressed natural gas configurations of the Models 579 and 567, meeting a healthy market need for customers seeking cost effective, cleaner burning natural gas energy,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt Assistant General Manager of Sales and Marketing. “We’re again expanding our natural gas product offerings with liquefied natural gas configurations of these same models, giving customers greater choice and flexibility for their business and operation requirements."
The Models 579 and 567 LNG configurations are available as daycabs and production is scheduled for June.
Both trucks are powered by the Cummins-Westport ISX12 G with up to 400 horsepower and 1,450 lb.-ft. of torque.
“Peterbilt is the industry’s natural gas leader with the largest market share, most experience and broadest, most versatile product lineup,” said Woodall. “We offer a natural gas truck option for nearly every application, and we’re pleased to offer our flagship aerodynamic Model 579 and vocational Model 567 in an LNG configuration.”
