The DAF is equiped with the 10,8 liter Paccar MX-11 engine with outputs from 210 – 440 Hp. On the dashboard is a special ‘Silent’ button that engages the silent mode. In this mode the torque and engine revs are limited and also the shifting strategie is changed. Another adjustment is that the gearbox is isolated. The maximum output in the quiet mode is only 72 dB(A) and that makes the DAF a real quiet truck. That makes it ideal for city distribution during the night.
The special quiet DAF truck is on the market from the start of 2015 as rigid and as tractor unit with all cabs and wheelbases.
