Peterbilt launches updated vocational Models 567 and 520

Peterbilt Motors Co. has made updates to its vocational Model 567 and 520 trucks.

The key updates are found in the new VMUX electrical system, which the company says delivers enhanced functionality and seamless integration with many different types of bodies for vocational customer applications.

Exterior updates to the Model 567 (pictured above) include a cab-mounted side mirror, bright air intake bezel option and increased DEF tank volume. On the inside, the Model 567 features the 15-in. digital display launched with the new Model 579. A customizable user interface (UI) delivers information and full PTO integration. Operators can fine-tune the digital display information to suit their individual preferences through the controls found on the new smart steering wheel. The truck has customizable B and C-panels, and new driver comforts found inside include additional cabin storage, two permanent cup holders and options for 12V or USB charging ports.

The Model 567 is available with new safety systems integrated into the digital display. Technologies include lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control with auto-resume, speed sign recognition, side objection detection, safety direct integration, multi-lane emergency braking and highway departure detection.

The Model 567, combined with the new 2021 PACCAR MX-13 and MX-11 engines and PACCAR transmission, sees a 2% improvement in fuel efficiency, the company says.

The changes to the Model 520 include the new 7-in. digital display found in the center of the instrument cluster, which includes conventional speedometer, tachometer and water and oil temperature gauges. Using a card system, Peterbilt says the display is able to relay important information to the driver at a glance, such as ADAS, PTO status, digital gauges, trip summary, drive summary and systems check. Drivers navigate through the different cards using a knob located to the right of the steering column.

The Model 520 is also now available with Bendix Wingman Fusion with side objection detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control with auto resume, speed sign recognition and safety direct integration.
