Peterbilt Debuts Pride & Class 389

Peterbilt this week debuted the all-new, special edition Pride & Class Model 389.  The truck is now in production and is  being sent to customers and Peterbilt dealerships throughout North America.

“Peterbilt has defined the look of trucking for generations and the new Model 389 Pride & Class embodies that spirit of bold design and legendary craftsmanship,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President. “Stylistically this truck deserves a place on a pedestal or in a museum, but it is every bit the workhorse that customers expect from a Peterbilt.

“It’s a head-turning tribute to an industry classic that keeps on innovating.”

The truck is packed full of “unique features both inside and out.”

“The Pride & Class edition appeals to all truck owners who take pride in their vehicles and want to make a lasting impression,” Siver said. He added that some fleets will be using the Pride & Class edition as a reward truck for their best drivers.

The truck features a louvered grill design that pays homage to the 1954 Peterbilt 351.  The grill is manufactured from highly-polished steel.

In addition, the truck features a polished hood crown and hood spine; polished metal hood air intake vent in the style of the 1939 egg crate grill pattern; bright metal fenders, large polished exterior sun visor, bumper and exhaust stacks; polished rocker panels; bright cowl skirts, battery box, fuel tanks and trimmed mud flaps.

The truck comes standard with the Peterbilt Platinum interior and is finished in the Arctic gray color and charcoal dash top.  The truck touts Blackwood trim accents.

The truck is finished with chrome door handles, bright-bezel gauges, a 4-spoke metal steering wheel with a leather wrap, black leather seats, and black carpeting.

Customers may choose from a day cab, 72-inch and 78-inch sleeper options.
