DAF is introducing a large number of innovations to the LF Pure Excellence, which will reinforce the truck’s industry leading position in the 7.5 to 19-tonne class.
The innovations include a new 3.8 litre PACCAR engine and the possibility to select faster drive lines for maximum fuel efficiency. At the same time, the design of the exterior and the interior is aligned with the New CF and XF.
One of the improvements introduced in the DAF LF is the new 3.8-litre PACCAR PX-4 engine, which is available for the 7.5-tonne version of the LF in two power ratings: 115 kW/156 hp and 127 kW/172 hp with maximum torque of 500 and 600 Nm respectively at between 1,200 and 2,000 rpm.
DAF is introducing this new engine specifically in the LF City for light applications within urban distribution, for which an engine with a displacement of just under 4.0 litres is optimal.
The exterior design of the new LF shares many of the features that give the New CF and XF a completely new look. Changes include chrome strips on the grille and a new logo panel, with the letters ‘DAF’ in stylish chrome outlines.
