To perfectly tune the DAF XD to the individual tasks and requirements of operators, the XD with 6.7 litre PACCAR PX-7 engine is now available with wheelbases of up to 6.9 metres and a full suite of cabs, including the Sleeper Cab and Sleeper High Cab. The PX-7-powered ‘International Truck of the Year 2023’ comes as a 4x2 rigid.
Thanks to its class-leading active and passive safety features, unparalleled direct and indirect vision and excellent driver comfort, the DAF XD is the ultimate 18-tonne distribution truck. It can be equipped with the fuel efficient PACCAR MX-11 engine (220 kW/300 hp up to 330 kW/450 hp) and the economical 6.7 litre PACCAR PX-7 driveline. The latter is another 600 kg lower in weight and offers outputs of 167kW/230hp up to 227kW/310hp.
Next to the already available spacious Day Cab, DAF has now added the Sleeper Cab and Sleeper High Cab to the XD PX-7 programme. Both cabs offer even more driving comfort and living space for the driver and make multi-day distribution routes possible. The 70 centimetre wide bunk features the ultra-comfortable thick mattress from the DAF XF.
All XD cabs offer superior accessibility and outstanding adjustment ranges for the seat and steering wheel, guaranteeing the best driver position in the segment. Ride and handling benefit from optimal design of the chassis front end, cab suspension and rear axle suspension.
Further adding to driver comfort are the new extra-long wheelbases. With lengths of up to 6.9 metres, these are especially ideal for applications focused on the distribution (conditioned or otherwise) of voluminous yet relatively lightweight goods to supermarkets and retail outlets.
