Peterbilt customers and enthusiasts can build their own Model 579 – choosing from a range of specs, colors, and configurations – with a new, free app available for iPads through the Apple App Store, Peterbilt Motors Company recently announced.

Among the many selections users can make are choosing a truck or a tractor, a day cab or pick from a full line of sleepers, different hood lengths, exterior colors and bright packages, powertrain, and other key components.

Additionally, users can utilize the full range of fairings and closeouts to build Peterbilt’s most aerodynamic and fuel-efficient vehicle: the Model 579 EPIQ.

Once the trucks are built, the app allows them to be saved or e-mailed.

A similar version of the Model 579 configurator app is also available on

The Model 579 configurator joins another app Peterbilt introduced last year for its SmartLINQ connected truck technology. That app is available for both Android and iOS devices and gives customers convenient access to the SmartLINQ remote diagnostics portal.
