Peterbilt innovations reduce operating costs.
Model 587 is innovatively designed for those who demand outstanding aerodynamic performance, superior fuel efficiency and the highest overall value. A streamlined hood and molded bumper smoothly divert airflow around the vehicle and trailer. Extensive wind tunnel testing and computational fluid dynamics have proven a 1.25% fuel-efficiency gain. The Model 587 is SmartWay designated by the EPA as fuel efficient and environmentally friendly
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.
Built to last.
The Model 587 is built to last. The solid and durable cab is constructed with the highest quality fit and finish. An in-mold process embeds color directly onto the dash for a long-lasting finish that virtually eliminates fading, scratching and peeling.
The premium interior features the revolutionary new SmartNav system, an integrated, infotainment system. SmartNav features a 7-inch touch screen that provides real-time vehicle monitoring, a truck-specific Garmin navigation system, hands-free Bluetooth® connectivity, voice recognition, a fully integrated audio system with satellite radio as well as MP3, USB and iPod® capabilities.
The space to excel.
The Model 587 interior features an integrated cab and sleeper that matches luxury with efficiency and productivity. The spacious and ergonomic cab interior provides plenty of legroom, and easy access to switches and power controls for comfort and convenience. A full 30 inches of walk-through space between the seats offers easy access to a sleeper that surrounds the driver with functional amenities and accessible storage space.
The 587 innovative forward lighting system significantly improves visibility for better overall road coverage and down-road visibility. Standard halogen lights feature a 35% increase in brightness and a 79% bulb life improvement. Optional HID headlamps increase brightness by 220%. A 12% improvement in curb-to-curb maneuverability provides better handling. The 587 is also standard with air disc brakes, providing the shortest stopping distance available.
