By Staff Writer / a few months ago

Peterbilt has added many new features to the Model 220 that will surely be a hit. Some of these features include enhanced PTO clearance, and a newly designed vertical exhaust system. This new design makes the truck much lighter, saving about 100 lbs per truck. Overall these improvements should make the truck lighter, cheaper, and more efficient.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Peterbilt Model 220 has new design features and options that result in weight savings, better performance and improved serviceability.
  • Among the new features is a redesigned vertical exhaust and a smaller battery box.
  • This new design allows body outfitters to complete their work more efficiently and with reduced downtime for our customers.

“The battery box cover is now made from lighter-weight aluminum instead of steel.”
