Peterbilt Launches New Car Carrier Configurations

In an exciting announcement for the car hauling industry, Peterbilt has recently revealed they have expanded its product lineup with the introduction of two groundbreaking vehicle configurations tailored for the car carrier market. These are the Model 567 UltraLow Roof Day Cab and the Model 589 UltraLow Roof 58-inch Sleeper. Crafted for car carriers, these models establish new standards in design, functionality, and driver satisfaction.

Both models are built on Peterbilt’s renowned lightweight and sturdy aluminum cab framework. This not only enhances the vehicles' durability and performance under challenging conditions but also optimizes load capacity—an essential factor in the car carrier industry.

Scott Newhouse, Peterbilt’s chief engineer, expressed his enthusiasm about the launch, stating, "The introduction of these two new configurations for car carrier applications underscores our commitment to designing and manufacturing customized solutions that meet the specific requirements of our clients." This initiative is a clear reflection of Peterbilt's dedication to innovation and customer-centric product development.

The Model 567 UltraLow Roof Day Cab, in particular, has been designed to achieve an industry-leading low roof height of 95 inches. This feature eliminates the need for aftermarket adjustments, setting a new bar for design efficiency and operational readiness directly from the factory.

On the other hand, the Model 589’s exclusive UltraLow Roof 58-inch sleeper combines style and comfort, catering to drivers who spend extended periods on the road. Both models are engineered to deliver superior power and performance, specifically tailored to meet the rigorous demands of heavy car carrier applications.
