The new DAF XD with 6.7-litre PACCAR PX-7 driveline (167 kW/230 hp – 227 kW/310 hp) complements the existing versions of the ‘International Truck of the Year 2023’ with 10.8-litre PACCAR MX-11 engine and ratings from 220 kW/300 hp up to 330 kW/450 hp. This allows customers to specify their trucks for distribution and vocational applications precisely to their individual operations. The new PACCAR 6.7-litre PX-7 driveline delivers a 600 kg weight saving, compared with the already low-weight MX-11 powertrain, which adds to its industry-leading payload and fuel efficiency.
New highly efficient engines
PowerLine automatic gearboxes
without any torque interruption enables smooth shifts and quick throttle response, resulting in unmatched comfort and driveability.In addition, the new transmission provides outstanding low-speed manoeuvrability, enabled by an urge-to-move feature upon releasing the brake pedal. In combination with optimised rear axle ratios, the XD with PX-7 engine offers the highest possible fuel efficiency, further strengthening the already excellent business proposition of the DAF XD series in the distribution segment.
As an option, the XD with PACCAR PX-7 driveline is also available with the powerful PX Engine Brake, offering more than 200 kW/276 hp peak power.
The safety benchmark
The XD offers superior accessibility for the driver and spacious cabs with volumes of up to almost 10 m3. Outstanding adjustment ranges for the seat and steering wheel guarantee the best driver position in this segment. Ride and handling benefit from optimal design of the chassis front end, cab suspension and rear axle suspension.
The XD with PX-7 is available as a chassis cab and can also be specified with a factory designed and installed PACCAR Body in either box or curtainside variants. With a range of body dimensions and options including factory fitted tail-lifts and load restraint systems, PACCAR Bodies can be specified to suit a broad range of dry-freight distribution applications. Fully type-approved and installed, and integrated during production at the Leyland Trucks assembly plant, PACCAR-bodied vehicles ensure a true one-stop-shop with shorter and a more predictable lead time into service for operators.
With the expansion of its popular XD series to include the new highly efficient PACCAR PX-7 engine, DAF has further strengthened its position in the distribution and vocational segment by now being able to offer the best business proposition in the class up to 220 kW/300 hp as well.
