The Peterbilt Model 589, introduced in May as the successor to the Model 389, is now available for customer orders. The Model 589 features classic Peterbilt styling, including a wrap-around aluminum grille crown, stainless steel grille, an aluminum hood with 121-inch or 131-inch BBC, dual stainless steel external air cleaners, and pod-mounted headlights.
It can be configured as a day cab or a sleeper in 44-inch, 58-inch, 72-inch, or 80-inch options.
The interior of the first 589 Model 589s will be enhanced with an individually numbered commemorative plate installed on the passenger side dash.
The company reports a distinctive legendary package is also available to showcase Peterbilt's heritage. It includes the original script logo from 1939, along with bright spears on the side of the hood, polished fenders, and bright rocker panels.
“The Model 589 represents the essence of the Peterbilt brand in terms of styling and driver appeal,” said Jason Skoog, Paccar vice president and Peterbilt general manager. “The enhanced comfort, technology, and performance of the Model 589 will benefit owner-operators, as well as help our customers recruit and retain drivers.”
Customers can place orders for the Model 589 through any of Peterbilt’s more than 425 dealer locations in North America.
Production begins January 2024 at Peterbilt’s factory in Denton, Texas.
