Peterbilt Unveils All-New Model 537 and Model 548
Peterbilt Motors Company recently unveiled the all-new medium duty Model 537 and Model 548, designed for the Class 7/8 segment.
Peterbilt spent considerable time working with customers to define the key attributes necessary to ensure the new Model 537 and Model 548 provide maximum versatility and rugged performance.
The versatility of the new Model 537 and Model 548 is built upon a brand-new customizable chassis and robust multiplex electrical architecture. The trucks deliver seamless body builder integration allowing customers complete customization to spec their truck to fit their needs.
The versatility continues with 2 hood options, a vocational 3-piece Metton® hood featuring a stationary grille with full through rail, and a 3-piece SMC aero hood for maximum visibility. Both hood options can use a variety of vocational and FEPTO bumpers to fit different applications. The bumper is mounted to the chassis with a drop-and-go feature for self-locating.
Rugged performance starts with the suspension on the new Model 537 and Model 548, with wide or standard track axles featuring superior wheel cut angles for a shorter turning radius and mono-leaf or taper-leaf front springs rated from 3,630 up to 9,072 kg. The rear suspension is available with a taper-leaf or air-leaf suspension rated from 5,670 to 18,145 kg depending on a single or tandem drive configuration. The AWD option features a new offset bowl design to offer the lowest possible cab height.
The new 2.1 m cab is wider inside than the previous generation cab and has room for 3 adults to seat comfortably. Stair-style steps and knurled grab handles make getting into the trucks easy.
The new Model 537 and Model 548 are available for order with deliveries starting in July.
