Peterbilt Brings Durability, Versatility With All-New Model 567

Celebrating its 75th anniversary this month, the company that was founded on manufacturing rugged, vocational vehicles is bringing its newest construction model to the World of Concrete – the all-new Model 567.

Peterbilt Dump&Mixer sm“The Model 567 is now in full production and we’re excited to feature it at the industry’s premier concrete contractor show,” said Charles Cook, Peterbilt’s Product Marketing Manager, Vocational Segment. “It’s a brand-new vehicle from bumper to bumper. This versatile and durable truck or tractor can be configured to meet a wide range of heavy- and severe-duty requirements and is ideal for mixer, dump and heavy-haul applications.”

The Model 567 is available in 121- and 115-inch BBC lengths with a wide variety of heavy-duty components and axle configurations for increased payloads and optimized weight distribution. The rugged new vehicle also boasts a tight turning radius for enhanced jobsite maneuverability.

According to Cook, the Model 567’s cab environment is a lot roomier, too. At 2.1 meters wide, the spacious new interior is engineered to reduce driver fatigue and improve efficiency. It also provides a panoramic view for enhanced visibility and productivity throughout virtually every jobsite condition.

Peterbilt will have a Model 567 at the show equipped with a Con-Tech mixer body and the PACCAR MX-13 engine – just one of the configurations available. The MX-13 engine is available up to 500 horsepower and 1,850 pound-feet of torque.

Cook said Peterbilt will also have two other models on display: the predecessor to the 567, the 365, which is still available, and the 320 – a low-cab forward truck, equipped with a Schwing concrete pumper body.

For more information about the new vocational Model 567, the venerable 365, the 320 or any of Peterbilt’s line of industry-leading trucks, visit Peterbilt.com.
