October 20, 2014 – Peterbilt’s new medium-duty Model 220 can now be spec’d with a clear frame rail package that provides up to 10 inches of additional frame rail space (versus the previous clear frame rail package).
“The clear frame rail package optimizes chassis space to help accommodate installation of a wider range of work bodies,” said Robert Woodall, director of sales & marketing.
The cabover Classes 6 and 7 feature numerous enhancements to performance, durability and the operating environment, boasts the OEM. Woodall says the vehicles feature enhanced maneuverability that shortens the curb-to-curb turning radius by 30% and improved braking with a standard electronic braking system (EBS). These characteristics combine with a bumper-to-bumper length for added agility, says Peterbilt, while delivering an extra 45 in. of payload area, and a frame rail system that can be upfitted with bodies ranging from 16 ft to 28 ft.
“This is a great truck for getting into tight spots, getting the work done and then getting back out and onto the next job,” Woodall said.
