Peterbilt showed off a new Blackout Exterior Package for its Model 579 UltraLoft at the American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council annual meeting in Atlanta.
The Peterbilt booth featured two on-highway Peterbilt Model 579s equipped with the advanced Paccar powertrain, Peterbilt’s most fuel-efficient option. One of the trucks was the new UltraLoft integral sleeper, featuring the brand-new Blackout Exterior Package.
“The Blackout Exterior Package is designed to further increase the driver appeal of the Model 579 UltraLoft,” said Robert Woodall, assistant general manager – sales and marketing.
The Blackout Exterior Package includes an exclusive black effect exterior paint for the cab and sleeper, Alcoa's new Dura-Black aluminum wheels, and a black finish grille crown. The package is available for order immediately.
Peterbilt customers can also order the black finish grille crown and Dura-Black aluminum wheels as stand-alone options with any exterior color.
