This marks the final phase in the development of the trucks which will share the DNA of the New Generation XF, XG and XG⁺, featuring the highest levels of quality, safety, efficiency and driver comfort.

After the first test drives, the series were widely praised by the trade press and crowned ‘International Truck of the Year 2022’ shortly after. The triplets have achieved an impressive orderbook of nearly 20,000 units before production officially started in early November.

The field-tested New Generation DAF distribution trucks make use of the same platform as the new long haul and heavy duty trucks, the first commercial vehicles developed with the new European Masses & Dimensions regulations in mind. The new series of distribution trucks have been designed to push the boundaries in terms of road safety, efficiency and low emissions, as well as of driver comfort. 

Ron Borsboom, executive director of product development at DAF Trucks, said, “With the game-changing XF, XG and XG⁺, DAF started the future of long and heavy haulage. Now, we are on our way to start the future of regional and national distribution as well. Direct vision, seating position, ergonomics, fit & finish, it will all be of a new league, next to superior vehicle efficiency and ride and handling.”

DAF will unveil its new generation of distribution trucks in the second half of the year. The new series will become available in addition to the wide range of the popular and versatile DAF CF trucks.
