Peterbilt Motors Company introduced an all-new Model 220 to its medium-duty COE lineup that features numerous interior and exterior enhancements to increase driver productivity, safety and durability. Additionally, the new product will be equipped with a new electronic braking system (EBS) that provides quicker responsiveness and an improved braking feel. Peterbilt announced the enhancements during the Mid-America Trucking Show.
“Our award-winning medium-duty cabover products are already leaders in their market segments for driver satisfaction, durability, serviceability and overall performance,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President. “The new cab design raises the bar in all of these areas, while continuing to provide exceptional visibility and maneuverability.”
The all-new cab features a completely redesigned interior that was engineered to give operators unparalleled levels of productivity and comfort. The new curved dashboard features easy-to-read instrumentation and an interactive, 5-inch color display module that provides information on vehicle and driver performance.
“The Driver Information Center display in the Model 220 keeps operators abreast of all vital vehicle and engine functions,” said Landon Sproull, Peterbilt Chief Engineer. “It also features advice for the operator on ways to improve in areas such as increasing fuel efficiency and reducing brake wear by modifying driving behavior.”The display, Sproull added, will include information in three languages: English, French and Spanish. Other operating environment improvements include a multi-function steering wheel and a push-button style shifter within easy reach of the driver. “Ergonomics were enhanced with easier-to-read instrumentation and all switches are grouped by function. Everything is within easy reach of the driver and the overall layout provides a logical, easy-to-operate environment,” said Sproull. He added that storage is abundant in the new cab with compartments in the door panels, along the back wall, in the header and on the dash, conveniently located near the driver for paperwork or other items. Additionally, a spacious, lockable compartment with two integrated cup holders that fits along the engine tunnel area is optional.
