Peterbilt will display its vocational Model 567 at ConExpo-Con/Agg in March.

The company announced earlier this month the truck is in full production.

BR_ConExpo_CountdownDesigned for use in dump, mixer heavy haul and refuse applications, the Model 567 is powered by a Paccar MX-13 engine that delivers up to 500 horsepower and 1,850 foot-pounds of torque.

The truck features durable components such as an all-aluminum cab, steel upper A-pillars and rear corner reinforcements, a resilient Metton hood and a stainless steel oval mesh grille and surround.

The hood pivot system includes a protection function that directs energy around the cooling module in the event of an impact, while the chassis is designed to maximize strength and minimize weight.

The 2.1-meter-wide cab provides high visibility with a panoramic windshield, forward lighting system and projector module low beam headlamps with a 2,000 hour life-cycle. A pod-mount design protects headlamps from potential damage to the fender.

To see the Model 567 at ConExpo-Con/Agg, visit booth #63940 in South Hall.
