2017 Peterbilt Model 220 updates and changes

The latest version of the Peterbilt Model 220 has just been revealed. The 2017 Peterbilt Model 220 updates and changes lead to several advancements over previous models.

Peterbilt Model 220 Weight Reduction

Several new features have been added to the Peterbilt Model 220 for the 2017 model year. The goal of these features was to reduce the overall weight of the truck. The vertical exhaust has been redesigned, utilizing a single canister aftertreatment instead of the former dual canister design. This change helps save 100 pounds, while also increasing the cab-to-axle distance by six inches.Peterbilt 220 models blue

The battery box on the new Model 220 has also been reduced in size, and is now made from lighter aluminum instead of steel, helping save an additional 65 pounds. The new aluminum battery cover is also resistant to corrosion and adds to the aesthetic appeal of the 220.

The 2017 version of the Peterbilt Model 220 is now available for order. The truck can be customized for several different applications, including street sweeping and striping, landscaping, refuse and pick-up and delivery.

    I purchased an 2017 PB 220. I paid for it in full 2 weeks ago today with only 16k miles, 33K gvw. Wasn’t aware I can’t install a hydrostatic pump to the frame rails on this truck to connect a PTO on the passenger side of transmission, due to the dual aftertreatment assembly system taking up all the room. But I came across this web page and seen that in the same year of my trucks assembly, Peterbilt also changed over to a single cylinder aftertreatment assembly. I’m stuck with this paid in full truck. I purchased this truck to replace an asphalt distributor tanker truck on an older sterling cab and chassis. Can your engineering expertise help me out? I don’t have any idea what to do now. Should of done more research before purchasing. My state of california is really putting the pressure on me. If you can’t help me will you please tell me so asap, please? Thank you and blessings to whom this comes to.
