LF Introducing the LF

The New LF

Pure Excellence

The new DAF LF builds upon the legacy of its popular predecessor, refining it to produce an even more efficient, comfortable and reliable drive. A staggering range of wheelbases and body lengths is on offer to ensure you can find the perfect partner for your business, while a selection of engines means it can deliver the power you need, wherever the journey takes you. A raft of modifications has also ensured that fuel economy is improved by up to six per cent.

Not only is it strong, the DAF LF is comfortable too. Controls are logically arranged and within easy reach, while the large range of seat adjustments ensures you’ll find the perfect driving position. With climate control, cruise control and a hands-free TruckPhone too, staying connected and in control is simple.

Innovations

DAF is introducing a large number of innovations to the LF, 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 and bring ‘Pure Excellence’ to the entire DAF range of vehicles.

One of the major innovations introduced into 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.

Elite PACCAR PX-5 and PX-7 engines

For higher outputs, the 4.5-litre PACCAR PX-5 (135 kW/184 hp to 157 kW/213 hp) and the 6.7-litre PACCAR PX-7 (172 kW/234 hp to 239 kW/325 hp) engines are available. These engines were enhanced at the end of 2016 with new software and optimised heat and air management. As a result, the maximum torque of both engines is 5% to 12% higher than previously available, and occurs at 100 - 200 lower rpms. The maximum torque of the PX-5 and PX-7 engines is now 850 Nm (at 1,200–1,500 rpm) and 1,200 Nm (at 1,100–1,700 rpm) respectively. The power of the PACCAR PX-7 engine has been increased by 8 kW/11 hp.

​New rear axle reductions for maximum efficiency

Taking advantage of the new faster rear axle ratios of up to 3.31:1, engine speeds are reduced by 150 to 200 rpms at cruising speed. Combined with the engine innovations, this driveline optimization delivers fuel savings of up to 6%, while driver comfort is further improved by the lower engine noise.​

​Wheelbases up to 6.90 metres and fuel tank volumes up to 1,240 litres

The fact that the DAF LF can be configured perfectly for any individual use is also attested by the wide range of available wheelbases with lengths of up to 6.90 metres. This allows body lengths of more than 9 metres for maximum load capacity. Moreover, the long wheelbase enables fuel tank volumes of up to 1,240 litres. This is a unique LF capability. It gives the LF an even longer operating range, optimises vehicle availability and enables the driver to refuel where fuel prices are at their lowest.

​Allison automatic transmission now available for 18/19-tonne LF

DAF offers a selection of manual and automated 5, 6, 9 and 12-speed transmissions in the New LF series.

In addition, fully automatic gearboxes are available and now the Allison automatic transmission can also be selected on the most powerful versions of the PX-7 to offer performance specifically tailored for vocational applications. 

​First-class bodybuilder-friendliness

In alignment with DAF Transport Efficiency DAF is also introducing innovations to enhance the LF’s bodybuilder-friendliness. These include the new ‘Body Attachment Modules’, which facilitate the easy attachment of bodywork or equipment. In addition, there are now available specific preparations for the attachment of a box body with tail-lift, a tanker with sub-frame or a tipper.

DAF now offers even more wheelbase and rear overhang choices on the LF. The combination of, for example, a longer wheelbase and a shorter overhang makes it simple to mount a refuse collection body.

Passenger door lower window for enhanced safety

Another addition for the New LF is the optional passenger door lower window. This window optimizes passenger

side visibility in urban environments. Thanks to the new lower window, the driver can easily see cyclists and

pedestrians alongside the cab.

Stylish interior for ultimate driver comfort

The new LF interior features updated warm and tasteful colours that accent the quality environment designed to make every driver feel at home.

The driver information panel (DIP) has also been redesigned in the New LF. Changes to graphics make messages clearer and the dials feature a contemporary font style that gives the instruments a fresh look.

New exterior design: sturdy and elegant

The exterior design of the New LF shares many of the features that give the New CF and XF a completely new look, which is both sturdy and elegant. The attractive chrome strips on the grille and the new logo panel, with the letters 'DAF' with stylish chrome outlines, are particularly striking.
