Peterbilt Motors Co. has added a new clear frame rail package for its Model 220 that adds an additional 10 in. of additional frame rail space compared to a previous version.
“This new option is ideal for customers in applications such as beverage delivery, street sweeping and striping and refuse collection and packing,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt director of sales and marketing. “The clear frame rail package optimizes chassis space to help accommodate installation of a wider range of work bodies. Additionally, this new configuration results in a 40% larger capacity DEF [diesel exhaust fluid] tank, improved visibility through the rear window and greater ease of serviceability.”
The Model 220 went into full production in July. The cabover Class 6 and 7 truck features enhanced maneuverability that shortens the curb-to-curb turning radius by 30% and improves braking with a standard electronic braking system (EBS), the company said. These characteristics combine with an efficient bumper-to-bumper length for added agility while still delivering an extra 45 in. of payload area and a frame rail system that can be upfitted with bodies ranging from 16 to 28 ft.
