Peterbilt introduced three new cab configurations for its Model 520, which is now available in Left-Hand Drive, Right-Hand Drive and Right-Hand Stand-Up Drive in addition to the existing Dual Seated Drive configuration.
The Left-Hand Drive and Right-Hand Drive configurations, according to Peterbilt, provide a comfortable seated driving position while in transit or performing curbside operations. The redesigned Right-Hand Stand-Up cab configuration provides ease of ingress / egress for those applications that require the driver to exit the cab multiple times during the route, reducing driver fatigue, the company said. Driver ergonomics are further enhanced by standard adjustable seat, angled steering wheel and dead-pedal to rest their left foot during operation, the company added.
The Model 520 is available with a wide range of engines, including the PACCAR PX-9, PACCAR MX-11 and Cummins ISX12 diesel engines, as well as the Cummins ISL-G, ISL-G Near Zero and ISX12-G natural gas engines.
