April 29, 2015 – Peterbilt says its model 567 is “more than up to the challenge of the full range of heavy-and severe-duty applications” thanks to a new all-wheel drive option.
“The model 567 was engineered to be a rugged, durable workhorse and we continue to expand its capabilities through new features and configurations to meet customer needs and exceed their expectations,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt assistant general manager of sales and marketing. “The new all-wheel drive model 567 will help customers go off-road in tough conditions with ample traction, power and maneuverability they can rely on.”
All-wheel drive is available for the model 567 in a set-back front axle configuration, according to Peterbilt. It includes the Marmon-Herrington MT-22H front drive axle rated at 22,000 lb and the Dana Spicer DS4636 drive axle rated at 46,000 lb. It can be ordered with a range of auxiliary components, including transfer cases. Or, if customers prefer, the drive axle can be used in place of the transfer case.
