A new generation of DAF trucks has been unveiled by DAF, including a new flagship model in the company’s portfolio.
The Dutch manufacturer has revealed a new XF, as well as the XG and range-topping XG+ (pictured above, left to right).
The models are claimed to have a whopping 10% improvement to fuel efficiency, all-new cab design as well as new safety features.
There’s also a new digital dashboard, and new digital mirror cameras (similar to Merc’s MirrorCam) are now available as an option.
The new XF features a bigger cab, lower CO2 emissions and higher energy efficiency than the previous model.
In addition, driver’s vision is improved thanks to a larger windscreen and ‘ultra-low’ belt line.
Standing height in the XF is between 1,900 and 2,075mm, depending on position within the cab.
Meanwhile, a new generation of DAF trucks means a new XG flagship model.
The XG and XG+ have been developed to offer something beyond the already impressive XF.
For example, the cab has been lengthened at the rear by 330mm, enabling more living space for drivers.
In the XG, there is also more standing height – between 1,980 and 2,105mm, depending on position.
The new truck offers a semi-flat floor – accessed via three steps – and an upgraded seating position for improved vision.
Furthermore, there are additional space improvements when it comes to XG+. The roof height is increased further to offer a standing height of up to 2,220mm.
With a volume of 12.5m3, the XG+ has up to 14% more volume than the current XF’s Super Space Cab.
A new generation of trucks deserve a new look, so XF, XG and XG+ have been given a makeover.
All three models get a new grille with chrome elements, with DAF logo integrated into the design.
As a practicality, the lower steel bumper has a composite skin to cut accident repair costs.
Finally, full LED headlights, daytime running lights and integrated cornering lights all feature on the new DAFs.
Orders are being taken now, with production scheduled to begin in October for delivery next year.
