Peterbilt builds 100,000th Model 389 as production end nears – Truck News

Peterbilt has manufactured the 100,000th Model 389 truck at its plant in Denton, Texas, reaching the milestone on Sept. 7.

The Model 389 was introduced in 2006 and ends its production run at the end of this year, when it will be replaced by the Model 589.

Massey Motor Freight, based in Nacogdoches, Texas, was handed the keys to the truck, outfitted with a limited-release Model 389X special edition package. Just 1,389 of those trucks will be made.
