As the manufacturer’s largest commercial vehicle, the DAF XF is truly a sight to behold. From its powerful yet friendly exterior, through its driver-centric cabin to its outstanding load capacity, it raises the bar for heavy goods vehicles across the globe.
Beneath its eye-catching exterior, the new DAF XF provides an inviting cab, designed to make you feel at home. Enjoy the perfect temperature whether you’re in motion or asleep, access switches and controls with ease, and relax into the journey in the tastefully upholstered seats. When you’re on the go, you’ll appreciate the mighty yet efficient engines that are designed to keep costs down while providing plenty of punch.
Long distance haulage is tiring work, which is why a host of safety features are employed on the XF. There’s Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and more, all of which keep you and other road users protected.
The new premium exterior makes The New CF and XF the most attractive trucks on the road.
And with the updated interior, drivers have an environment that makes their favourite truck even better.
New levels of driver comfort are another big part of the New CF and XF. We’ve added features that make the cab an even more attractive and comfortable place to work, live and sleep. There are many new options that allow to personalise the interior for unmatched comfort and luxury. And we’ve introduced numerous innovations that make driving easier, safer and more enjoyable than ever.
The New CF and XF build on the excellent standards of driver comfort for which DAF trucks are renowned world-wide. They offers the biggest interior space available on the market, the best and largest bunks and a completely new, attractive look and feel. The New CF and XF: the best a driver can get!
The completely new climate control unit stands out in comfort and user-friendliness. It features one-touch defrosting, park ventilation, park heating with timer, rest heat and automatic air recirculation and can also be operated through the rear wall control unit. That means maximum comfort for the driver. In addition, the new temperature and climate control system is extremely efficient, supporting lowest total cost of ownership.
We’ve further expanded driver information, making it easier to take effective action. The beautiful and clear instrument panel has new fonts and a new styling for even better readability. The Driver Information Panel also provides more information to increase driver comfort and efficiency. To enhance driver performance even further, settings are grouped on the instrument panel more logically and the Driver Performance Assistant (DPA) includes even more tips for economical driving.
We’ve completely redesigned the interior lighting with innovative rotary switch control. The control button is centrally located in the middle of the dashboard console so it’s within easy reach. The driver can select different lighting modes for various driving and resting conditions, and there’s also a dimming function. For highest convenience, there’s a toggle switch on the rear wall.
Thanks to smart vehicle electronics position of the individual switches can be adapted to personal preference of the driver. This adds to great driver comfort as well as maximum vehicle efficiency. These switches also make it easy for dealers and bodybuilders to add new functions without the need to install extra control panels.
Repair and maintenance costs can be a huge drain on your bottom line. So we’ve introduced innovations to keep wear and tear to a minimum. For example, the clutch control is now situated in the clutch housing itself, protecting against damage from water and dirt. And the alternator is electronically controlled to improve battery charging. Together, these enhancements improve durability, reliability and ultimately your profitability.
The New CF and XF are powered by multi-torque PACCAR MX-11 and MX-13 engines with new power ratings. Many innovations result in even more torque at lower rpm for highest fuel efficiency.
For industry-leading fuel economy, fully variable oil, steering and coolant pumps, a new piston ring package, and a new piston skirt profile all contribute to additional friction reduction. What’s more, we’ve added a new turbo charger and a new combustion system for maximum efficiency.
The new CF & XF include an extended set of Eco Mode options. The Eco Performance Mode ensures the balance between high drive-ability and best fuel efficiency. When fuel efficiency is leading, the Eco Fuel Mode is the best option, with gear shifting at lower revs for instance.
The New CF and XF come with the latest generation of TraXon automated gearboxes (12 and 16 speed). Less friction losses, even faster upshifts and the extended use of EcoRoll contribute to lowest fuel consumption, whereas driver comfort is enhanced thanks to its quiet and smooth operation and precise clutch actuation. The TraXon automated transmission also allows higher reductions in lowest gears through which even faster drive lines could be realised.
In addition these new engines and gearboxes, we’ve introduced high-efficiency rear axles with low-friction wheel ends. What’s more, a range of faster ratios starting from 2.05 enable lower engine rpm’s for highest fuel efficiency. To reduce friction losses, we’ve introduced grinded differential gear sets and added new bearings and seals in the rear axle along with low-level, low-friction rear axle oil.
