Peterbilt announced the production of its 1 millionth vehicle. The Model 567 Heritage rolled off the assembly line at the company’s Denton, Texas, manufacturing facility.

In celebration of the milestone, Peterbilt recently conducted a search for its ultimate SuperFan within the United States and Canada. From the 1,200 entries submitted, Peterbilt will choose the SuperFan to be gifted the Model 567 Heritage during a ceremony at the upcoming Mid-America Trucking Show.

"One million trucks is a fantastic milestone and is a testament to the hard-working Peterbilt employees from 1939 to now," said Leon Handt, assistant general manager of operations for Peterbilt Motors Company. "We wouldn’t have been able to grow our brand without them."
