Peterbilt Motors Company is taking immediate orders for the production of its vocational and aerodynamic vehicles powered by compressed and liquefied natural gas (NG). The Model 365 and Model 384 will be offered with the Cummins Westport ISL G and built at Peterbilt’s truck manufacturing facility in Denton TX.

The Peterbilt Model 365 NG features systems to improve ride and handling, enhance weight distribution, as well as maximize performance and profitability without sacrificing overall efficiency. The Model 365 NG is equipped with the ISL G providing a 320 horsepower rating and 1,000 lb-ft of torque. The Model 365 has a 115-inch BBC, and is available in both set-forward and set-back axle configurations.

The Cummins Westport’s ISL G-powered Model 384 provides a clean-burning aerodynamic platform with the power and performance to meet applications including line, bulk, and tanker hauling. Additionally, the Peterbilt Model 384 has been recognized as fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly by the EPA’s SmartWay program.

The Cummins Westport ISL G engine can be fueled by either compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG). CNG or LNG fuel tanks can be configured to suit customer applications and range requirements. NG heavy-duty trucks are eligible for federal tax credits in the United States and may be eligible for other state-specific emissions credits.
