Peterbilt Model 589 walk around

Peterbilt Model 589 walk around

A big truck launch needs a big venue, and the Texas Motor Speedway in Dallas was happy to oblige.

Peterbilt’s Model 589 incorporates a larger cab with enhanced driver comfort and a completely new interior, trucked around the infield track with both PACCAR MX and Cummins engines and manual and automated manual transmission options.

The exterior is classic Peterbilt, sporting an aluminum hood, dual round 15-in. exterior air cleaners, a V-style sun visor and 7-in. exhaust stacks. The Model 589 options also include a Legendary Package that incorporates unique styling elements, including the Peterbilt script and spears logo on the hood, door pads and dash as well as unique brightwork on the exterior. The 589 is built on the same all-aluminum cab as the Models 579 and 567 and incorporates fuel-efficient features that reduce its environmental footprint, such as tire pressure monitoring and predictive cruise control, the OEM noted.

For a full walk around the truck and comments from Peterbilt’s Jason Skoog, general manager; Scott Newhouse, chief engineer; and Jacob White, product marketing manager, watch the video above.

Kenworth talks Cummins natural gas engine trucking applications

Driven by decarbonization, the Kenwortth T680 outfitted with the Cummins X15N natural gas engine aims to lower trucking emissions.

The biggest challenge that any lower- or zero-emission powertrain technology faces is that diesel is just too good at its job. It's hyper efficient in its own right in terms of how much energy is pulled out of the fuel in a diesel engine. It creates massive amounts of power--world moving power. And it's widely available. Those are tall hurdles to clear, but new powertrain technologies are getting close. Natural gas, though not new to the market, has, potentially, a bright future ahead of it as the Cummins X15N rolls out, and Kenworth's Sarah Abernethy, powertrain marketing manager, is already hearing about the differences this time around.
