The technology you can’t see in today’s trucks is just as important as the technology you can. The next-gen Peterbilt 579 first impression is striking—from the improved aerodynamic design that offers a 7% fuel efficiency gain over the previous iteration when spec’d with a PACCAR powertrain, according to the OEM, to the 15-in. digital driver display and myriad of intelligent powertrain offerings like adaptive and predictive cruise features. And oh yeah, did I mention the rear-view camera enabled Digital Vision System?
There’s more than meets the eye when it comes to the next-gen Peterbilt 579, and who better to be your guide through the new features than Jason Skoog, Peterbilt general manager and PACCAR vice president? I connected with Jason just after the launch of the 579 next generation and then headed to Denton, Texas, for my own hands-on experience.
