The Peterbilt Model 587 has been recognized as fuel efficient and environmentally friendly by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay program, which establishes fuel-saving, low-emission specs for new Class 8 long-haul tractors.
The innovative new forward lighting system significantly improves visibility, including more consistent light distribution, better overall road coverage and down-road visibility. Standard halogens feature a 35% increase in brightness while optional HID lights provide a 220% increase.
The Model 587 features a newly designed steering geometry that provides an impressive curb-to-curb maneuverability improvement of 12%.
A new front-end design smoothly diverts air over and around the streamlined hood and molded bumper. Aerodynamic improvements have been validated through extensive wind tunnel and computational fluid dynamics testing, resulting in a 1.25% fuel efficiency gain.
