Peterbilt innovations reduce operating costs.
The Model 386 is innovatively designed for those who demand outstanding aerodynamic performance, superior fuel efficiency and the highest overall value. SmartWay designated, the Model 386 is available with Peterbilt’s proprietary Aero Package, including a selection skirts, fairings and closeouts, to increase fuel economy by 12% over a non-equipped Model 386. Available Lightweight Packages, including PACCAR MX-13 Engines, aluminum components and rear drive train, increase efficiency, maximize payload, enhance performance and reduce operational costs.
All Peterbilt natural gas platform vehicles are equipped with the Cummins Westport HD engine, which offers a 400 - 475-horsepower rating and 1,750 lb-ft of torque and provides an extremely efficient fuel-to-power ratio. Efficient and emissions compliant, the HD natural gas engine produces horsepower and torque comparable in capability and service to the diesel engines. These efficient and emissions compliant compressed (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) power platforms join Peterbilt’s family of SmartWay-certified on-highway vehicles and alternative fuel vehicles, forming the industry’s most comprehensive environmentally responsible lineup.
The PACCAR MX-13 Engine brings a new level of innovation through industry-leading quality, exceptional reliability and proven performance. The combination of a Peterbilt truck and MX-13 Engine offers a long-term value through technologically advanced designs with lightweight materials that achieve excellent performance and superior fuel economy. The MX-13 provides longer service intervals, increased uptime, lower operating costs and higher resale value.
