Now here it is, the new DAF XF! The new truck was just released on the IAA show in Hannover. Despite it still is the old cab DAF did a great job with the new styling. It clearly has it’s own face and it stands out in a row!
Not only the outside is new, the interior also got a nice facelift. A new instrument cluster with colour screen, extra cupholders, new seats and fabrics and an even bigger bunk make the difference.
Most important is off course the technical news. The chassis layout is completely new, just like the axles and the Euro 6 engines. DAF now also has an eco-roll system and there is a fast-shift mode. One uni1ue item are the LED headlights. No other brand did that before on a truck!
Great news is that the pillar in the side windows dissapeared. That made it possible to move the mirrors backwards so you can see through the A-Pillar and the mirrors. Other DAF news? More chassis space for fuel, special light-weight configurations and an improved ATe setup for even better fuel figures, also with Euro 6
