Peterbilt Motors Co. announced that it is taking immediate orders for the production of its vocational and aerodynamic vehicles powered by compressed and liquefied natural gas. The Model 365 and Model 384 will be offered with the Cummins Westport ISL G and built at Peterbilt’s truck manufacturing facility in Denton, Texas.
“Our Models 365 and 384 are examples of Peterbilt’s commitment to delivering products that will reduce harmful emissions and provide the performance and overall value our customers need,” says Bill Jackson, Peterbilt general manager and Paccar vice president. “These two NG-powered platforms join Peterbilt’s three medium-duty hybrid-electric vehicles currently in production to offer the widest range of environmental friendly options to our customers.”
Peterbilt says the Model 365 NG improves ride and handling, enhances weight distribution and maximizes performance and profitability without sacrificing overall efficiency. The Model 365 NG is equipped with the ISL G, providing a 320 hp rating and 1,000 lb-ft of torque. The Model 365 has a 115-inch BBC and is available in both set-forward and set-back axle configurations.
The Cummins Westport’s ISL G-powered Model 384 is designed to provide a clean-burning aerodynamic platform for a wide variety of customer applications, including line, bulk and tanker hauling. Additionally, the Model 384 has been recognized as fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay program.
