DENTON, Texas – January 22, 2015 – Peterbilt’s low-cab forward Model 320 reached record production in 2014 with more than 1,600 trucks built, a 12 percent year-over-year increase, Peterbilt Motors Company recently announced.
The specialty vehicle – used primarily in refuse operations and concrete pumper applications – was recently introduced with an entirely new interior. A right-hand, stand-up cab configuration was announced late last year. Additionally, the company said it would introduce a dual-steer configuration later this year.
“The Model 320 has been a proven performer for many years and through many harsh operating environments. Since 2000 we’ve seen large market share gains for the Model 320,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt Assistant General Manager of Sales and Marketing. “We anticipate even larger gains ahead as customer reception of the new Model 320 is outstanding, providing superior fit and finish and numerous enhancements that improve operator comfort, productivity and safety.”
Among its many new features are a new instrumentation panel with LED backlit gauges; Peterbilt Driver Information Display that provides real-time communication of vehicle performance and diagnostics; easy-to-reach instrumentation; and increased visibility, including rear cab corner windows.
