New Peterbilt 579 Ultra Loft

DENTON, Texas. – July 6, 2018 – (was it not the dark of the moon on the 6th June – TB!?) Today Peterbilt Motors Company delivered the keys to the first production unit of the new Model 579 UltraLoft to David Freymiller, President and CEO of Oklahoma City based Freymiller Trucking.

Peterbilt announced the introduction of the Model 579 UltraLoft earlier this year. The UltraLoft features a high roof integral cab and sleeper design for Peterbilt’s flagship on-highway Model 579 that provides the ultimate level of driver comfort and the distinctive style and quality Peterbilt is known for.

“The Model 579 UltraLoft was designed to exceed customer demands, offering increased space and storage to create a comfortable environment for drivers,” said Robert Woodall, Assistant General Manager – Sales and Marketing Peterbilt Motors Company. “The UltraLoft is the result of the collaborative process between Peterbilt and many of our customers and drivers. They asked for the best and we delivered.”

Driver experience was the key driver in designing the Model 579 UltraLoft. By optimizing the space available, the new sleeper model includes industry-leading storage and comfort. The UltraLoft gives drivers the largest upper and lower bunk mattresses, best-in-class headroom in both bunks and class-leading creature comforts with space to accommodate the industry’s largest microwave and enough room to fit a 32 inch flat screen TV.

The improvements are not limited to the driver experience. The UltraLoft provides an estimated 2-percent aerodynamic improvement and a 220 pound weight reduction to push the limits of efficiency even further while maintaining the styling and bold look of the Model 579.

Peterbilt trucks are the class of the industry. The superior craftsmanship, performance and design set them apart from the crowd and the pride of driving a Peterbilt is a tool we use to retain and recruit quality drivers,” said David Freymiller, President and CEO, Freymiller Inc. and

longtime Peterbilt customer. “The Model 579 UltraLoft is a game changer as it takes it to a new level. Our drivers are excited to take advantage of the increased space and premium cab design.”
