Peterbilt Motors Co. unveiled the new ProBilt interior for its Model 320 low-cab forward truck during the recent Waste Expo show in New Orleans, displaying a series of new ergonomic improvements, system enhancements and improved overall visibility for its driver.

The Model 320 interior is redesigned from the floor to ceiling, highlighted by a new ergonomic dash design that includes LED-backlit gauges that are easy-to-read and are easily visible through the new steering wheel. A new Driver Information Display provides vehicle data, and rocker switches are all within easy reach.

The dash features an in-mold process that embeds color directly into the dashboard for a durable, long-lasting finish that eliminates fading, scratching and peeling. An improved HVAC system maintains reliable performance and consistent heating and cooling throughout the cab, and removable dash panels allow easy access to those heating and cooling components. The new header includes overhead HVAC controls and toggle switches for body devices and the ConcertClass audio system.

The cab’s B-pillar now features cab corner windows for increased visibility.  A lowered dash brow and a large, retractable sunshade that spreads the length of the front windshield also contribute to improved overall visibility.

The new interior includes a large center console with removable panels for easy installation and access to body controls. There are multiple large storage compartments, a space designed for a small lunch cooler, driver and passenger side cup holders as well as a USB-charging port and 12VDC charging outlet.

Safety and comfort were key considerations in the new pedal position package.

Additional features include:

  • Padded headliner for improved thermal and acoustic performance
  • Four-speaker audio system
  • Vertical-parked windshield wipers
  • Header and over-door storage capacity
  • Padded door panels with power controls for windows and mirrors
  • Tilt/telescoping steering wheel
  • Multi-function turn-stalk
  • Heated seats
  • Available in left-hand and right-hand drive configurations.

The ProBilt interior is available in Titanium Gray. For more information, visit www.peterbilt.com.
