Peterbilt Innovations Reduce Operating Costs
With the 579, the combination of aerodynamic innovation and powertrain optimization delivers confidence and efficiency for the most cost-conscious companies. Designed for the best aerodynamic performance, we used Computational Fluid Dynamics to test, refine and validate. Peterbilt's flexible Aero Packages provide the right combination of fairings, skirts and closeouts to exceed application-specific aerodynamic requirements. Available in a day cab, or with detachable sleeper, that adds versatility and longevity of a second life for highest resale value.
CLEAN AND FUEL EFFICIENT
Peterbilt offers a compressed natural gas (CNG) configuration for the Model 579, providing short and long haul customers with the industry's most innovative, advanced vehicles with state-of-the-art CNG systems. The Cummins Westport ISX12 G engine complies with all EPA 2013 and CARB emission regulations and is available with ratings of 320-400 horsepower and 1,150-1,450 lb. foot of torque. This CNG platform joins Peterbilt's family of alternative fuel vehicles, forming the industry's most comprehensive environmentally responsible lineup.
FIT AND FINISH
Built to Last
The Model 579 is built to last. We made the aluminum cab solid and durable, with the highest quality fit and finish. An in-mold process embeds color directly onto the dash for a long-lasting finish that virtually eliminates fading, scratching and peeling. Electrical wiring carriages support wiring and reduce wear and tear, adding to the overall durability of the components.
FUEL EFFICIENT, HIGH ERFORMANCE
Powered by Quality
Featuring an advanced, robust design that improves fuel economy and reduces weight, the new PACCAR 40,000-pound tandem drive axle is standard for Peterbilt’s Model 579 spec’d for line-haul applications. The PACCAR axle is rated at 40,000 pounds and has a gross combination weight of 80,000 pounds, making it ideal for line-haul, regional haul and pick-up and delivery applications. It is the lightest weight axle in its class, saving up to 150 pounds.
The Platinum interior features the revolutionary SmartNav system, an integrated, infotainment system. SmartNav features a 7-inch touch screen that provides real-time vehicle monitoring, a truck-specific Garmin navigation system, hands-free Bluetooth® connectivity, voice recognition, a fully integrated audio system with satellite radio as well as MP3, USB and iPod® capabilities.
