Peterbilt delivers New Model 579 to Smith Transport
Peterbilt Motors Company announced the delivery of the first production New Model 579 to Smith Transport. Based in Roaring Spring in Pennsylvania, Smith Transport has a long, 40-year history of delivering excellence for their customers. An early adopter of the UltraLoft when it launched in 2018, Smith Transport through the years has seen the value of incorporating Peterbilt trucks into their fleet and the positive effect the partnership has had on their business. An employee-owned company, drivers at Smith Transport have a voice in what equipment they choose to drive and with the introduction of the New Model 579 and its many enhancements Smith drivers are looking forward to having them added to the fleet.
The New Model 579 is the most technologically advanced Peterbilt ever with an aerodynamic and fuel-efficient design, a revolutionary 15” digital display and Advanced Driver Assistances Systems providing drivers the latest safety technologies. The interior of the New 579 includes soft-touch materials with a fit and finish that delivers an outstanding driver experience and when configured as an UltraLoft with an integral sleeper featuring 70 cubic feet of space, drivers have more storage than any comparable integral sleeper. Drivers will feel right at home with plenty of headroom from the eight-foot high ceiling. The cabin has room for small appliances, including a 1.1 cu ft microwave, a 32” TV, a tall wardrobe closet, multiple power outlets and optional bunkbeds with a clever fold-away ladder.
