Peterbilt Motors Co. has rolled out its ComfortClass system in a 63-in. sleeper configuration, available for order on Class 8 vehicles that are equipped with a 63-in. Unibilt sleeper.
According to Peterbilt, the ComfortClass system provides a temperature-controlled environment and the capacity to run electronic devices in the sleeper without having to run the engine for up to 10 hours.
“The ComfortClass system helps ensure operator comfort by maintaining the desired temperature within the sleeper while the truck is not in operation,” said Landon Sproull, Peterbilt chief engineer. “It provides climate control performance as effectively as traditional systems, but uses much less energy to do so. It will provide up to 10 hours of HVAC, even with outside temperatures of up to 95 degrees, ideal for the typical off-duty period of an over-the-road operator.”
The 63-in. ComfortClass follows the introduction of the 70-in. sleeper ComfortClass last year, and both sizes will be available on Peterbilt Models 365, 367, 384, 386, 388, and 389, the company said.
