Oct 3 16
Peterbilt has introduced the aerodynamic, fuel efficient Model 579 EPIQ day cab, Peterbilt Motors Company announced during the ATA Management Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas. Customers can specify the full aero package through Peterbilt dealerships for simplified ordering or customize it for specific needs, such as an aero bumper-to-back-of-cab package or an aero bumper-to-front-tandem package. The aerodynamic components and packages are also available through Peterbilt dealerships for aftermarket installation. Peterbilt’s Model 579 EPIQ day cab is available with the fuel-efficient PACCAR MX-13 or MX-11 engine in a wide range of horsepower and torque ratings. Fuel efficiency is further enhanced with the PACCAR MX engine paired with the Fuller Advantage automated transmission. This powertrain features precise communication and proprietary control logic between the engine and transmission. The three-piece collapsible roof fairing is an industry-unique design that in a few minutes allows the roof fairing to be lowered. This allows the truck to be transported without the need to completely remove the roof fairing, as is common with most day cabs. Other features of Peterbilt’s Model 579 EPIQ package include low rolling resistance tires, the SmarTire Tire Pressure Monitoring System and a single horizontal exhaust configuration.

SmartLINQ Service Management, powered by Decisiv, will be integrated with the PACCAR Solutions portal in 2017. Siver noted that nearly 20,000 Peterbilt trucks are equipped with SmartLINQ and that number is rapidly expanding with the system now standard and factory-installed on all heavy-duty trucks. Reasoning engine technology, a collective knowledge approach to truck diagnostics and repair, will be integrated with the SmartLINQ platform in December 2016. SmartLINQ’s reasoning engine technology will collect and analyze information generated by the on-board diagnostics of every SmartLINQ-enabled truck.

Technicians can apply up-to-the-minute information to more efficiently and accurately diagnose and solve service issues. SmartLINQ Service Management provides customers with real-time access to the status of truck repairs and service being performed at Peterbilt dealerships. It improves uptime by streamlining communication between customers and dealers to expedite decision-making in the servicing of the vehicle, for instance approving electronic repair estimates.
