Peterbilt has implemented newly engineered routings in all configurations of the Models 579 and 567 as well as in the Model 389 to enhance serviceability across product lines.
The engineered routings bundle each system-- air, fuel, and electrical-- separately, to allow easier identification and service by technicians. These routing enhancements are standard with orders specifying 2017 emissions engines.
“Thanks to the innovative features of the engineered chassis routings, Peterbilt customers will enjoy enhanced ease of repair and maintenance,” said Scott Newhouse, Peterbilt chief engineer. “Peterbilt has taken great strides to improve product quality with the implementation of the engineered routings, which provide consistent manufacturability, improved product quality and improved serviceability.”
Peterbilt also announced the introduction of the Paccar Engine Pre-Owned Warranty for Peterbilt Red Oval-certified truck customers.The warranty is offered and administered through Peterbilt dealers and Paccar Financial USed Truck Centers, providing protection for the MX engine and aftertreatment system for one year and 125,000 miles and a 90-day buyer assurance plan covering major chassis components.
Peterbilt Red Oval Certified vehicles pass a comprehensive 150-point factory certified inspection performed by factory-trained service technicians. All Red Oval certified trucks are reconditioned and serviced, including DPF cleaning and an oil and filter change. Additionally, every Red Oval truck is DOT-certified.
“With the Paccar Engine Pre-Owned Warranty, Peterbilt further enhances the Red Oval certified program,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt assistant general manager of sales and marketing. “Buyers of Red Oval certified trucks benefit from additional assurance of the MX engines’ proven durability and reliability.”
