Truck Manufacturers - Peterbilt

A Leading Green Truck Manufacturer


Founded in 1939, Peterbilt is one of North America's leading truck manufacturers, combining premium quality with custom manufacturing to produce long-lasting, reliable trucks designed to meet the specific needs and challenges of their customers. Offering the widest array of efficient, environmentally friendly vehicles on the road today, Peterbilt has established itself as the leading manufacturer of natural gas trucks.


Wide Natural Gas Selection

Peterbilt recognizes responsibility as a global citizen to limit the impact on the environment, and is pro-actively developing environmentally-sound natural gas systems for on-highway and vocational trucks. Partnered with Cummins Westport and Westport HD, Peterbilt's family of alternative fuel vehicles forms the industry's most comprehensive, high performing, fuel efficient, and environmentally responsible line-up.

Powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG), Peterbilt's Model 367 LNG, ideal for vocational applications, and Model 386 LNG, ideal for line, bulk, and tanker hauling, are both equipped with the Westport HD GX engine and offer up to 475 horsepower and 1,750 lbs-ft of torque. The 15-litre engine uses high pressure direct injection technology (HPDI), specialized cryogenic fuel tanks, and associated electronic components to facilitate robust performance and reliable operation. This technology uses a low cost, cleaner-burning fuel than diesel without compromising engine torque, power, fuel economy, or drivability, in addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent.

Peterbilt Models 320, 365 and 384 are equipped with the Cummins Westport ISL G engine, and can be coupled with either compressed natural gas (CNG) or LNG fuel systems. With ratings up to 320 horsepower and 1,000 lb-ft of torque, ISL G-powered trucks provide optimal performance for short-haul, regional, refuse and dump applications.

Meeting Fleet Demands for Natural Gas

Westport_LNG1If recent orders are any indication of the demand of natural gas vehicles, then Peterbilt is right to promote the use of natural gas trucks. In October 2010, Peterbilt received an order from Boucherville, Québec-based Robert Transport for 180 LNG trucks, Models 386 and 367. Robert Transport is one of Canada's leading for-hire trucking companies with operations in eastern Canada and in the United States.

In January 2011, Peterbilt received an order for 50 Model 386 LNG trucks from Vedder Transport, a company based in Abbotsford, British Columbia. Vedder Transport specializes in the distribution of food-grade products in bulk, liquid or dry state in Western Canada and the United States, and stated Peterbilt's 386 Model LNG trucks were the ideal green and fuel efficient solution for the fleet's delivery services.

In April 2011, Peterbilt announced an order for 200 LNG Model 367 trucks from American water solutions company Heckmann Corporation, who wished to transition its tractor-trailer fleet from traditional diesel vehicles to natural gas vehicles. Once in service, the LNG trucks will be used to service its customers' natural gas well operations.

With more than 250 dealer locations in Canada and the United States, Peterbilt provides best in class service and support for natural gas trucks.
