Beginning in the tough logging industry of the Pacific Northwest, Peterbilt trucks are meant to stand the test of time. After perfecting a heavy-hauler, Peterbilt has turned its eyes toward fully integrating technology into its trucks.
Peterbilt’s Model 567 is at the forefront of technological integration and increasingly delivers value. This durable and versatile truck has the endurance and the smarts to work all your heavy-duty jobs.
Peterbilt cabs are made from a lightweight, durable aluminum. The cab of the Peterbilt Model 567 is a strong and rugged skeleton that is corrosion-resistant, watertight, and rattle-free.
The Metton hood of the Model 567 is also lightweight and designed to withstand impacts that could crack or shatter fiberglass. The hood features a blow-down protection device that prevents unexpected hood closure. Below the hood is a long-lasting stainless steel grille with a polished aluminum crown that protects the engine cooling system, which is also lightweight, easy to service, and has high horsepower capability. Pod-mounted, High-Intensity discharge (HID) headlamps are standard on Peterbilt trucks and offer great nighttime visibility and reduce the potential for damage. These lamps provide an evenly distributed beam pattern, superior performance, and longer bulb life.
The high-capacity frame is made of durable steel and cast aluminum crossmembers that make the Model 567 capable of handling the heaviest and toughest jobs. Peterbilt’s Model 567 features lift axle ratings of 8,000 to 23,000 lbs and rear axle ratings of 21,000 to 70,000 lbs. Set-back axle configurations (115-inch and 121-inch) provide optimum weight distribution with ratings of 12,000 to 23,000 lbs. The Model 567 also features an electronic service analyst port that simplifies electrical system troubleshooting and maintains event logs.
Choose between six engines for the Model 567. Among those are the PACCAR MX-13 and MX-11. The PACCAR MX-13 offers maximum performance, superior fuel efficiency, and low operating costs. That’s not to mention its wide range of horsepower (510 hp) and torque options (1,850 lb-ft) and its fully integrated system offering increased uptime between services. The MX-11 features up to 430 hp and 1,650 lb-ft of torque. Model 567 customers also have the advantage of the PACCAR 20,000 lb steer axle with its five-year/750,000 warranty.
Choose between multiple manual, automated, and automatic transmissions for rugged vocational applications. The new PACCAR automated 12 speed is also available for linehaul operations.
For maximum stopping power and improved braking and handling, air disc brakes are standard on the Model 567. The Peterbilt Model 567 also features electronic stability control and advanced braking assistance with Bendix Wingman Fusion. Wingman Fusion combines feedback from the 567’s camera, radar, side sensors, and brakes to detect unsafe driving conditions and enable automatic braking in dangerous situations.
DRIVER IN MIND
Peterbilt interiors feature ergonomically placed controls, keeping everything within comfortable reach of the driver. The angled dash, adjustable seating, hi-visibility seatbelts, and steering wheel placement contribute to a driver-centered interior.
Its large windshield, cab-mounted mirrors, and the slope of the hood offer visibility in every direction, contributing to Peterbilt’s best-in-class visibility.
Peterbilt also offers the SmartNAV infortainment system, which has availability for four camera inputs, allowing customers to customize the product to fit their needs.
With Peterbilt, safety begins even before the driver is seated in the cab. The Model 567 features stair-style steps with non-slip tread for extra traction and textured exterior grab handles for easy entry and exit.
In addition to Peterbilt’s advanced braking assistance with Wingman Fusion, Peterbilt offers remote diagnostics that give fleet managers 24/7 notifications on fleet health and real-time insights. This technology, called SmartLINQ, monitors fleet health through more than 750 engine and after-treatment diagnostic codes to maximize uptime and keep fleets running at top performance.
Peterbilt’s years of experience make the brand a staple in its segment. Get a truck that’s at the forefront of technological integration, delivers value, and designed as both a workhorse and a driver’s dream. A Peterbilt Model 567 includes all of that and more.
