Built to Work Hard
Built around Peterbilt's signature all-aluminum cab, the 348 is lightweight yet strong for maximum durability. Huck-bolted with lap seam construction, it offers years of virtually watertight performance. The durable Metton® hood is optimized for road and construction sites, withstanding impacts that would shatter or crack other materials. From construction and crane service to utility and delivery services in both Class 7 and Class 8 markets, the 348 is in a class by itself.
Available with either the PACCAR PX-7 or the PACCAR PX-9, the 348 has the power to get the job done. The 6.7-liter PACCAR PX-7 Engine delivers superior performance, minimizes operational costs and maximizes uptime for medium-duty customers. Reduced maintenance, long service intervals and excellent fuel efficiency add up to a superior lifetime value. The PACCAR PX-7 is available in horsepower ratings from 200 to 360hp and offers up to 800 lb-ft of torque. The 8.9-liter PACCAR PX-9 Engine has one of the highest power-to-weight ratios in its class, with heavy-duty features like replaceable wet liners, roller cam followers, bypass oil filtration and targeted piston-cooling. Available in both medium- and heavy-duty configurations, PACCAR PX Engine options give customers in traditional Class 7, Class 8, vocational or specialty applications outstanding fuel economy, greater reliability and unsurpassed performance.
Heavy-Duty Vocational Options
Designed for virtually any specialty application, the Model 348 is one of Peterbilt's most versatile vocational trucks and is available in either a truck or tractor configuration with a GVW between 33,000-66,000 lbs. It is also available in an all-wheel-drive configuration to provide vocational customers enhanced off-road versatility, increased maneuverability and an easy transition from all-terrain to urban streets. Customers can customize a vehicle to meet their business' exact requirements, with a wide variety of heavy-duty suspension and vocational options in both single and tandem axles.
Where Form and Function Work
Every detail in Peterbilt's medium duty interior has been thoughtfully designed to create a comfortable and productive working environment. The ergonomic dash features LED backlit gauges that are easy to read, a driver information display for critical vehicle data, and rocker switches within easy reach. An in-mold process embeds color directly onto the dash for a long-lasting finish, virtually eliminating fading, scratching and peeling.
