IAA 2016: Updated PACCAR PX engines for DAF CF and LF became 12% more efficient
As part of the DAF Transport Efficiency philosophy, DAF is introducing innovations to the successful DAF LF and CF distribution trucks with PACCAR PX engines.
Higher torque at lower revs contributes to enhanced driver comfort and better fuel efficiency. These engine enhancements in combination with the new, faster drivelines reduce engine revolutions up to 300 rpm at a cruising speed of 85 km/h and provides up to 4% better fuel efficiency.
New software and optimized heat and air management for the efficient and reliable 4.5 litre PACCAR PX-5 and 6.7 litre PACCAR PX-7 engines have increased torque by up to 12%. Maximum torque of the 4 cylinder PACCAR PX-5 engine in the DAF LF series now goes up to 850 Nm at 1,200 – 1,500 rpm, and for the PACCAR PX-7 engine in the DAF LF and CF, torque reaches 1,200 Nm at 1,100 – 1,700 rpm.
