Peterbilt Motors Co. plans to roll out a Heritage edition of its Model 567 tractor in September; a 121-in. bumper to back of cab (BBC) set-forward front axle (SFFA) tractor that can be spec’d as a day cab or with a 72-in. or 80-in. sleeper.
“Peterbilt’s Model 567 Heritage elevates its classic styling with a package of unique features that will command attention on highways and job sites,” noted Darrin Siver, the OEM’s general manager, in a statement.
“The Model 567 Heritage appeals to owner-operators and premium carriers who want to reward their drivers and add distinction to their fleets,” he said. “The Heritage delivers proven productivity, uptime and value with a look and feel that is like no other truck on the road.”
Siver added that the Heritage edition is also a nod to “Peterbilt’s rich history” that began in the rugged Northwest logging industry.
Exterior features of the Model 567 Heritage include: bright bumper, grille bars, exhaust stacks, mirrors and sun visor; chromed air intake bezel and metal hood latches; polished rocker panels, quarter-fender closeout panels, fender brace and brackets, battery boxes and fuel tanks; plus special Heritage badging, uniquely numbered and mounted to the grille and sleeper (when applicable) for the first production units of this truck.
The interior of the Heritage edition includes special features as well, such as: platinum-level “Heritage Brown” interior with a black dash top and wood-finish trim; premium brown leather seats with accent stitching to complement the cab design and embroidered Heritage logo in the headrest; plus door pads with brown wood trim.
For Model 567 Heritage trucks equipped with a sleeper, wood trim accents continue on the sleeper cabinets and storage compartments. The two-tone sleeper back wall is embroidered with the Heritage logo.
Peterbilt’s Model 567 Heritage announcement follows the rollout of a new refuse vocational truck unit last month, the Model 520.
