Peterbilt Showcases Natural Gas Vehicles

March 28, 2012

LOUISVILLE, KY – Peterbilt Motors Company showcased its growing lineup of natural gas-powered vehicles during the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky.

Currently, the company offers six natural gas vehicle solutions for over-the-road, heavy haul, regional, and vocational applications.

Peterbilt alternative-fuel configurations include both liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) for the Cummins-Westport ISLG and ISX12G, and LNG with the Westport GX engine.

The present lineup includes:

  • The aerodynamic, over-the-road Model 386 has received the EPA’s SmartWay Designation, and is available with the GX.
  • The vocational and heavy-haul Model 367 is available with the GX.
  • The Model 365, which is used heavily in dump and mixer applications, can be equipped with the ISLG and will be made available with the ISX12G.
  • The maneuverable workhorse Model 382, ideally suited for regional hauling and vocational applications, can be spec’d with the ISLG, compatible with either compressed natural gas or liquid natural gas.
  • The traditionally styled Model 389 is available with the GX.  
  • The low-cab forward Model 320, designed ideally for refuse applications, which can be spec’d with the ISLG and will be offered with the ISX12G.

Peterbilt had two vehicles on display at the Mid-America Trucking Show:

  • The recently introduced Model 382 which is now available with the 9L Cummins-Westport ISLG and used primarily in regional haul and vocational applications features a CNG fueling system and is configured in a dump application.
  • The vocational Model 365 equipped with the new 12L Cummins-Westport ISX12G and is specified in a roll-off application for the refuse market.
