Peterbilt Unveils New Interior for Model 320
May 23, 2013 - Products
Peterbilt unveiled its all-new Model 320 interior during the Waste Expo show in New Orleans. The new ProBilt interior for Peterbilt’s low-cab forward vehicle features ergonomic improvements, system enhancements and improved overall visibility.
The Model 320 interior underwent a floor-to-ceiling re-design, beginning with the new ergonomic dash layout.
An in-mold process embeds color directly into the dash for a durable, long-lasting finish, which virtually eliminates fading, scratching and peeling. Removable dash panels allow easy access to electrical and HVAC components. An improved HVAC system maintains reliable performance and consistent heating and cooling throughout the cab. The new header includes overhead HVAC controls and toggle switches for body devices and the ConcertClass audio system.
The cab’s B-pillar has been re-designed to include cab corner windows for increased visibility. A lowered dash brow and a large, retractable sunshade that spreads the length of the front windshield also contributes to improved overall visibility.
The new interior includes a large, multi-purpose center console.
Removable panels allow for easy installation and convenient access to body controls. Storage space is abundant, with multiple large storage compartments, a space designed specifically for a small lunch cooler, driver and passenger side cup holders as well as a USB charging port and 12VDC charging outlet.
The cab features the extensive use of contemporary LED lighting, including two directional dome lights in the header, as well as two over-the-door lights and one large light on the back wall. LED lighting reduces eye fatigue and power consumption and also provides extended bulb life.
Additional features include:
• Padded headliner for improved thermal and acoustic performance;
• 4-speaker audio system;
• Vertical-parked windshield wipers;
• Header and over-door storage capacity;
• Padded door panels with power controls for windows and mirrors;
• Tilt/telescoping steering wheel;
• Multi-function turn-stalk;
• Heated seats;
• Available in left-hand and right-hand drive configurations.
