FUELED BY INNOVATION When Peterbilt decided to improve on what was already one of the most successful, fuel efficient trucks on the road, it relied on two resources. One was the people who know trucks best – operators and fleet managers. The other was pure Peterbilt innovation and engineering excellence. The result: the groundbreaking, Peterbilt Model 587. The Model 587 is SmartWayŽ certified by the EPA as fuel efficient and environmentally friendly, and sets the new standard of operational efficiency as well as driver comfort and safety for on-highway trucks. The Model 587 is innovatively designed for longhaul fleets, driving teams or owner-operators who demand uncompromising quality, maximum aerodynamic performance, superior fuel efficiency and the highest overall value.

Fuel Efficiency



Safety Improvements

A new front-end design smoothly diverts air over and around the streamlined hood and molded bumper. Aerodynamic improvements have been validated through extensive wind tunnel and computational fluid dynamics testing, resulting in a 1.25% fuel efficiency gain.

The Model 587 features a newly designed steering geometry that provides an impressive curb-to-curb maneuverability improvement of 12%.

The innovative new forward lighting system significantly improves visibility, including more consistent light distribution and better overall road coverage and down-road visibility. Standard halogen lights feature a 35% increase in brightness while optional high-intensity discharge lights provide a 220% increase.

A new robust gas spring design allows for easier opening and closing of the battery/tool box and helps ensure items are stored safely and securely.

UNPARALLELED VALUE The Model 587 interior features an integrated cab and sleeper that matches luxury with efficiency and productivity. The spacious and ergonomic cab interior provides plenty of legroom, swivel seats, dual arm rests and easy access to switches and power controls for added comfort and convenience. It includes a full 30-inches of walk-through space between the seats, offering easy access to a sleeper that surrounds the driver with functional amenities and accessible storage space such as cabinet enclosed closets and under-bunk storage.

The PACCAR MX engine brings a new level of innovation through industry-leading quality, exceptional reliability and proven performance. The MX is available with a wide range of horsepower and torque options to deliver maximum performance, achieves superior fuel efficiency and offers excellent horsepower-to-weight ratios to optimize payload.
