Peterbilt Motors Co. has announced a new 58-in. sleeper model, which will be released later this year and is now available for order.
The new sleeper is available for Peterbilt’s Model 579 and Model 567 trucks. It is built to reduce truck weight by as much as 100 lbs. compared to an 80-in. sleeper, and is available in both low- and mid-roof configurations.
“Peterbilt’s new 58-in. sleeper is a perfect fit for customers in applications where a shorter wheelbase and less weight are important, such as tanker and flatbed operations,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt’s Assistant General Manager of Sales and Marketing. “Additionally, it has all of the driver-pleasing amenities found in Peterbilt’s larger sleepers, including ample storage, quality fit and finish and numerous driver comforts.”
New features of the 58-in. sleeper include a full-length door and extenders for the trailer gap, as well as a TV mount, refrigerator, microwave shelf and full-length mattress.
The new sleeper will go into production during the fourth quarter of this year.
