Peterbilt celebrated production of the 100,000th Model 389 at its Denton, Texas, manufacturing plant on September 7. The Model 389 was introduced in 2006. As part of the celebration, Peterbilt presented the milestone truck, equipped with the limited-release Model 389X special edition package, to Massey Motor Freight, a nationwide freight shipping service based in Nacogdoches, Texas, according to the press release.
According to Peterbilt, the Model 389 will end its production run at the end of the year. Its successor, the New Model 589 introduced earlier this year, is now available for order through any of Peterbilt’s 425+ dealer locations in North America. Model 589 production begins January 2024 at Peterbilt’s factory in Denton, Texas.
