Popularity of Peterbilt Model 320 results in booming production levels

Peterbilt Motors Co. said production of its Model 320 low-cab-forward vehicle reached record levels, besting its previous best production levels by 33%.

The Model 320 is designed for vocational markets, including refuse, construction, tanker and fire service applications, and is designed to facilitate specialized body installations for a comfortable work environment with the durability required to operate in extremely harsh conditions.

“We are very proud to reach this Model 320 production milestone, increasing our production by 33% over the previous record year, which serves as an indication our customers recognize the benefits and value this product offers,” said Bill Kozek, Peterbilt general manager and Paccar vice president. “Peterbilt is a leader in developing solutions for the vocational markets, and the Model 320 is a unique product that spans a wide range of applications, from inner-city streets to landfills, and from jet fuels to concrete pumpers, where the worksites require excellent visibility for operators, reliability to operate day in and day out, and the durability to withstand the rigors of the jobs they perform.”

The Model 320 cab is available in left-hand, right-hand and dual drive with right-hand stand-up configurations. A 65-deg. cab tilt enhances maintenance and serviceability.

The Model 320 offers a full range of axle selections in single, tandem or tri-drive configurations, plus a full complement of tag and pusher axle options and a tandem steer front axle configuration rated at 36,000 lbs. For heavier applications, optional frame liners are available.
