Peterbilt 567: Versatile Vehicle for a Variety of Vocations

With a classic-inspired look and a modern feel, the Peterbilt 567 is a versatile vocational truck that was tailored with the working driver in mind. This model drove its way into the marketplace in 2014 while hauling many excellent features with it. This model offers some incredible qualities in every aspect, everything from hood to end of frame has been carefully engineered. At JX PacLease we build our fleet trucks with versatility and functionality at the forefront of our design.

The Chassis

Our chassis is unique in many ways because of the combination of features. The cab support system is positioned wider on the frame to make for better ride quality and increased maneuverability. The aluminum cross-members may be light, but they are strong which provides a stiffer frame that decreases noise while also increasing ride comfort. Peterbilt offers a Set-Forward or Set-Back Steer Axle which are both beneficial depending on the vocational use of the vehicle, JX’s rental fleet contains both. Our Set-Forward Front Axle rentals are set up for wet kit operation and also feature a 13-speed manual transmission and 220” wheelbase. Another key feature of our Set-Forward day cabs is the Jost fifth wheel, which can be made to tilt or no-tilt. As for the Set-Back Front Axle rentals; these have the industry-leading PACCAR automated transmission and a tight maneuvering 177” wheelbase. 

The Cab

When it comes to the cab, the visibility in every direction is exceptional due to the panoramic view from the driver’s seat. This view is a result of combining over 21,000 square inches of the windshield with a lower dash brow and sloped hood. Not only that, they have excellent side windows and large exterior mirrors mounted on both the door and the hood. When Peterbilt created the 567 they had the working driver in mind with a door handle that is bigger for when a glove is being worn. Also, to help decrease fatigue from climbing in and out of the truck and enhance safety they added staircase-style steps with mounted handles that are easy to reach. Once inside the cab, the ergonomic environment will help make driving more convenient, efficient, and comfortable.

As soon as a driver sits in the seat of the 567 they will feel spoiled and satisfied while renting. Contact a JX Rental Representative to make a reservation for your next rental!
