Peterbilt has delivered the keys to the first owner of a new Model 579 UltraLoft after announcing the model earlier this year.
Purchased for Oklahoma City-based Freymiller Trucking, the UltraLoft variant of Peterbilt’s flagship Model 579 features a high roof integral cab and sleeper design that prioritizes driver comfort. Designed for a better driver experience, the UltraLoft offers more room and storage than a typical 579 with a larger upper and lower bunk mattress and sleeping area and creature comforts such as a microwave and room for up to a 32-inch flat screen TV.
The UltraLoft also features aerodynamic enhancements and reduced weight in order to improve overall efficiency.
David Freymiller, president and CEO of Freymiller Trucking noted that his fleet was using the Peterbilt truck as a tool to retain and recruit drivers. “The Model 579 UltraLoft is a game changer as it takes it to a new level,” said Freymiller. “Our drivers are excited to take advantage of the increased space and premium cab design.”
