Peterbilt introduced a new lineup of interior enhancements for on-highway and vocational trucks.

The designs are included on all levels, including the Platinum, Prestige, and ProBilt.

The new interiors feature a contemporary dash design that uses an "in-mold" process that embeds color directly into the dash material rather than an add-on finish. This production process virtually eliminates fading, peeling and color degradation.

The enhancements are available on Peterbilt Models 386, 384, 389, 388, 367 and 365.

Peterbilt has enhanced its Premium UltraRide and UltraRide seats with coordinated colors and new fabric patterns. The seats are available as options on the new interiors and provide customers with the latest technology in comfort, adjustability and ergonomic support.

The Platinum interior features new top-of-dash panels in a dark charcoal color that is scratch resistant, reduces driver glare and is less likely to fade or show dirt. The lower dash panels are constructed of woodgrain. The interior offers an ergonomic environment with conveniently placed window, lock and mirror controls, and LED backlit gauges to reduce driver fatigue. It also features highly contoured premium door pads, a GPS Navigation system and the ConcertClass audio system.

The Prestige interior features top-of-dash panels in a charcoal color that reduces driver glare, is easier to clean and less likely to scratch, while the lower dash panels are matched to the cab's interior color. It also features ergonomic enhancements such as LED backlit gauges that reduce driver fatigue, easy-to-reach rocker switches, and a multi-function turnstalk.

The ProBilt interior features new upper and lower dash panels in the dark charcoal color that is easier to clean and shows less scratches and scuffs, but also improves driver visibility due to less glare. It features five grab handles, ergonomic pedal package for comfort, and the Peterbilt Electronic Service Analyst that improves electrical system serviceability by isolating sensors and gauges for the least amount of downtime.

Design changes were incorporated to enhance HVAC system functionality, including:
• Use of a smaller, lighter aluminum evaporator;
• A molded door design providing better sealing;
• The addition of a third door to the HVAC unit to isolate the heater core from conditioned air;
• A new fresh air intake drain design providing enhanced condensate drainage on steep grades;
• A redesigned larger air filter which allows for easier access, removal and installation.

Paccar Parts will offer accessory packages for interior retrofit.
