Peterbilt 367/357/378

Peterbilt’s 367 model has replaced both the 357 and 378 trucks in the heavy-duty vocational applications such as logging, dumping, and construction. All three vehicles are known for their tough exterior and long-lasting performance, particularly because of the lightweight aluminum build, bulkhead doors, fiberglass hoods, and the pod-mounted headlamps.

PACCAR’s own MX-13 engine is used in these Peterbilts, allowing maximum power and great fuel efficiency. Added bonuses to using this particular engine with these Peterbilt trucks include lower operating costs and higher resale value, increased uptime and longer service intervals, all of which serve to lower consumer costs while maintaining high performance standards.

Of course, Peterbilts are also customizable, and these three are no exception. Customers can choose between a variety of heavy-duty equipment, liners, axles, and hoods, so whatever vocation the truck is for, it can be tailored to the customer’s needs. With a 123” BBC and the ability to house up to a 600 horsepower engine, these Peterbilts are built to last, no matter how tough they work.

Though the mechanics and exterior of the trucks are important, there is also something to be said for the comfort and safety of the driver who will be utilizing the truck for several hours a day, several days a week. The Peterbilt interiors are built to be ergonomic, comfortable, and productive, with durable materials that resist stains and scratches. There are five grab handles, power controls, and a turnstalk with multiple functions as well, all of which allow the driver to stay in control and safe during working hours.

There are also sleepers available, and though the sizing has changed throughout the years, the quality remains the same. In the 1960’s and 1970’s, for instance, a 30 inch or 36 inch were the most commonly available, unless a custom order came in — then Peterbilt paired with Mercury Sleepers for their 40 inch, 60 inch, or a custom size. Later on down the line, the UltraSleeper became popular as the most luxurious option at 70 inches long. It contained a closet, table, and “wet closet” (for items like raincoats, umbrellas, and rain boots). The UltraSleeper was discontinued in 2005, and now the Unibilt is the most common sleeper.

Whether you’re going into construction or hauling, Peterbilt is one of the most recognized trucks for its high quality and endurance. The company that started out as a fixture in the logging business has branched out to serve a wide range of commercial customers throughout North America, becoming one of the most familiar names in the business.

Peterbilt’s commitment to high quality materials, innovative technology, and customer care have ensured that they remain at the peak of popularity with the public, even those who don’t own their own Peterbilt truck. Despite changes to the vehicles over time, their integrity remains steadfast, and though they have become a subsidiary instead of their own private company, Peterbilt continues to stand out from its competition by its dedication and loyalty to its customers, as well as by its own high standards for vehicles that need to go the extra mile.
