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.
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. The 220 is just one of the versatile models that make up the Peterbilt lineup.
