Walking around a DAF truck will give you an appreciation of its good looks and European pedigree. Perhaps what you can't see is even more revealing and impressive. Such as the active and passive safety features of DAF vehicles.
With excellent temperature control, low interior noise level, high backed seats, large front and side mirrors and fully adjustable steering column, the DAF cab provides the driver with a comfortable and safer working environment.
All PACCAR engines are designed to offer the highest standards of economy, reliability and durability. The 6-cylinder, in-line engines with SMART high-pressure injection systems are cleaner and deliver high power and torque at low engine speeds.
The outstanding quality of the current range of PACCAR engines is a reflection of over 50 years experience DAF has accumulated in the development and production of its own engines. During this time, the company has established an excellent reputation for producing durable, reliable, fuel efficient and low emission engines. This has been exemplified by the current PACCAR engine range, which includes SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) after-treatment technology to meet the strict Euro 5 emission standards.
A fuel-efficient engine alone does not guarantee low fuel consumption; the gearbox and rear axle are also vitally important.
That is why DAF pays great attention to integrated and optimal driveline technology. A new Intarder, plus faster rear axle ratios give the best combination of performance, efficiency and low weight.
Comfort, safety and efficiency are at the heart of DAF design. From the comfortable cab and superior safety features to its sleek good looks, the DAF range is designed to make life easier for the professional truck driver and operator.
Driver comfort and satisfaction are essential elements to safer trucking. Clever cab ergonomics can lead to less distraction and less fatigue by increasing the ease of operation for the transport professional.
