Peterbilt’s newest vocational truck – the Model 567 – is now in full production, the company announced Tuesday. 

The truck or tractor can be spec’d to meet a wide range of heavy- and severe-duty applications, Peterbilt Motors Company recently announced.

“Assembly is in full swing for the Model 567 with strong demand for our new model in many different markets,” says Robert Woodall, Peterbilt Director of Sales and Marketing. “The durability and versatility of the Model 567 make it ideal for dump, mixer, heavy haul and refuse applications.” 

Peterbilt unveiled the new model earlier this year during the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky. 

The Model 567 can be ordered in 121- and 115-inch BBC lengths with a wide variety of heavy-duty components and axle configurations.

“It has a set-back front axle that provides excellent maneuverability and a tight turning radius,” Woodall says. “Combined with the panoramic view from the cab, operators will enjoy enhanced visibility and productivity throughout virtually every jobsite condition.”

The Model 567 is standard with the PACCAR MX-13 Engine with up to 500 horsepower and 1,850 lb-ft of torque and can be ordered as a day cab or with Peterbilt’s complete line-up of detachable sleepers.
