The Peterbilt Model 567 is available with an all-wheel drive option designed for heavy- and severe-duty applications, the company recently announced. It can be ordered now and will go into production in April 2015.
The all-wheel drive option is available on Model 567s in a set-back front axle configuration. It includes the Marmon-Herrington MT22H front drive axle and the Dana Spicer DS4636 drive axle. The MT22H is rated at 22,000 pounds and the DS4636 is rated at 46,000 pounds.
All-wheel drive can be ordered with several auxiliary components, including transfer cases or with a drive axle in place of the transfer case, based on preference.
“The Model 567 was engineered to be a rugged, durable, workhorse,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt assistant general manager of sales and marketing. “The new, all-wheel drive Model 567 will help customers go off-road in tough conditions with ample traction, power and maneuverability they can rely on.”
