The highlight of the first day of the Commercial Vehicle Show held at the NEC from the 25th to the 27th April had to be the launch and reveal of the new designs for the DAF CF and XF trucks. On hand were the sales and parts team from Greenhous Commercials who market DAF vehicles to their customers.
Liveried in a stunning Jamaican Blue colour the new vehicles were glittering in the lights and caught the attention of the world’s motoring press as well as the thousands of visitors to the show’s first day.
The new generation CF and XF trucks set a new standard in transport efficiency and driver comfort. Engine innovations, new drivelines and aerodynamic optimizations result in an up to 7% lower fuel consumption. The new DAF Connect fleet management system will drive even larger efficiency gains. The new generation CF and XF also feature lower weight for increased payload and an updated interior and exterior design for the highest driver comfort and greatest appeal. These excellent new trucks provide our customers with the lowest operating cost and the highest uptime.
The Greenhous sales staff are relishing the opportunity to promote the new trucks to their customers. The new CF and XF will enter production this summer in 4x2 tractor (FT) and rigid (FA) configurations, the 6x2 tractor FTG and FTP with pusher axles, and the 6x2 rigid with single mounted trailing axle (FAR). Other versions will follow in autumn.
“We have made the best trucks on the market even better”, commented Preston Feight, DAF Trucks president. “The new CF and XF further extend the current trucks excellent reliability, fuel efficiency and driver comfort. As part of our DAF Transport Efficiency philosophy we have again made major steps to further enhance vehicle efficiency by providing the lowest operating cost and the higher uptime for our customers. The new CF and XF represent Pure Excellence.”
