Peterbilt delivers 1,000th Model 589 – Truck News

Peterbilt recently celebrated the delivery of the 1,000th Model 589 to Mike Lowrie Trucking based in Dixon, Calif. The truck manufacturer has received more than 5,000 orders for the 589, according to a news release.

“As the proud recipient of Peterbilt’s 1,000th Model 589, I am reminded of the legacy that my family has shared with Peterbilt. From humble beginnings in 1947 with my dad’s first used Peterbilt, to us purchasing our new Peterbilt together in 1978, to now operating nearly 250 Peterbilt trucks, they have been more than a truck manufacturer; they’ve been a partner in our success,” said Mike Lowrie, president of Mike Lowrie Trucking.

“The Model 589 represents the heritage of the Peterbilt brand and was designed to make a statement with its bold style, superior craftsmanship and advanced technologies,” said Jake Montero, Peterbilt assistant general manager, sales and marketing.

Exterior features of the Model 589 include bold 15-inch air cleaners, 7-inch diameter exhaust stacks and exhaust shield and Peterbilt’s exterior lighting package including LED daytime running lights.

Inviting driver environment

Inside, creature comforts such as automatic climate control, storage space and larger dual cup holders create an inviting driver environment. The 589 styling is supported by technologies including an air-assisted hydraulic clutch on manual transmissions, and collision mitigation and driver technologies for improved safety.

It is available as a day cab and multiple sleeper options including the 44-inch low roof, 58-inch UltraLow, low and high roof, 72-inch low and high roof and 80-inch high roof configurations.

Also available is the Legendary Package featuring Peterbilt’s 1939 vintage script logo and spears that adorn the hood, coupled with bright work on the polished fenders and bright rockers. Rich leather-grain seats with the vintage logo in the headrest and unique stitching add a touch of luxury inside the cab.
