Peterbilt will display its lineup of medium-duty work trucks at The Utility Expo show in Louisville, Kentucky, from September 28-30. 

Peterbilt’s booth will feature a:

  • Model 536 with a 26 ft. stake bed configuration for hauling building materials and equipment.
  • Model 536 water tanker by Curry Supply with a capacity of 2,000 gallons and short wheelbase for easy job site navigation.
  • Model 537 outfitted with the Terex Hi-Ranger aerial bucket for electric utility jobs.
  • Model 548 with a Load King Singer 40-127RS crane, featuring a 127 ft. boom, 55 ft. jib, with a max tip height of 192 ft.

The medium-duty lineup is built upon a brand-new, customizable chassis and multiplex electrical architecture. The trucks deliver body integration allowing customers the ability to spec their truck to fit their exact needs. The new 2.1m cab is 8 in. wider inside than the previous generation cab and has room for three adults to sit comfortably. Stair-style steps and knurled grab handles make getting into and out of the truck easy. The interior features 6.1 cu.-ft. of storage space, three cup holders, and a dash layout with available space for optional gauges, switches, and ram mounts.

Additionally, an all-new instrument cluster, featuring a high-resolution 7-inch digital display, relays key information at a glance. Drivers can toggle through menu cards on the digital display using the new multi-function steering wheel or the display navigation knob. The digital display is fully integrated into the electronics of the truck with key information like system check, trip summary, PTO functions, ADAS, and TPMS all clearly displayed through the menu cards.
