The Cummins ISX 15 SmartAdvantage powertrain.

By Rolf Lockwood, Executive Contributing Editor

Test Drive: Peterbilt 567- Driver’s Delight

Built for shows, this Model 567 also goes, powerfully and smoothly. Bumper-to-back of cab length is 121 inches; a 115-inch BBC is also available. Set-back steer axle and single pusher axle suggests it’s built for an axle-weight state.
