DAF has introduced a completely new range of distribution trucks at the IAA Transportation 2022.  At the same event, the newly launched XD truck range also managed to win ‘International Truck of the Year 2023’ – following on the heels of the DAF XF and XG range that won the award for 2022.

The New Standard in Safety

The cab design of the New Generation DAF XD features a large windscreen and large side windows with an ultra-low belt line for best-in-class direct vision. This is achieved in combination with the low cab position (17 cm lower than the New XF) and the new ‘Vision Dashboard’, which is characterized by being contoured towards the windscreen on the co-driver side.

As an option, a Kerb View Window and foldable co-driver seat are available for an unobstructed view of pedestrians and cyclists next to the truck on the co-driver side. The DAF Digital Vision System and DAF Corner View add to unparalleled indirect view. The DAF City Turn Assist alerts the driver with visual and audible warnings when other road users are in the co-driver’s side blind zone.

The New Standard in Efficiency

First class fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions are realised through the perfectly formed aerodynamic cab. It features the same large radii, curved windscreen, excellent sealing and optimal engine and under cab airflow as DAF’s XF, XG and XG⁺ long distance models.

Market-leading vehicle efficiency is furthered by the new PACCAR MX-11 engine, smart exhaust after-treatment system, low vehicle weights, standard TraXon automated transmission and sophisticated driver assistance systems. Extensive availability of PTO’s, body attachment modules and connectors ensure first class bodybuilder-friendliness.

The New Standard in Driver Comfort

The New Generation XD offers superior, highly accessible and spacious cabs with volumes of up to 10 m3. Together with a Sleeper and Sleeper High Cab, a Day Cab is available that offers extended interior space as standard.

An ideal driving position is guaranteed through unmatched adjustment ranges of seat and steering wheel. The striking and highly ergonomic dashboard features crystal clear and fully digital instrument panels. Ride and handling benefit from a new superior chassis front-end design, cab suspension and rear axle suspension.

Excelling in versatility

The New Generation DAF XD is available to order in a full array of 4×2 and 6×2 axle configurations, both tractors and rigids. Production will start in Autumn 2022.

The all-new DAF XD truck series for distribution and vocational transportation is the owners delight and the driver’s dream.

DAF XDC and XFC for vocational and construction applications

At the IAA Transportation 2022, DAF is also presenting the New Generation DAF XDC and XFC. These high-quality construction vehicles feature single or double drive two, three and four axle configurations to meet specific requirements of the vocational and construction segment.

High payloads and sturdy design

The New Generation XDC with 10.8 litre PACCAR MX-11 engine and XFC with 10.8 litre PACCAR MX-11 and 12.9 litre PACCAR MX-13 engine, offer high payloads thanks to low kerb weights. These construction models are designed to handle the toughest work under the harshest conditions and have a robust bumper, a sturdy grille and a steel radiator protection plate. The XDC and XFC trucks offer a large approach angle and a high ground clearance for excellent off road performance.

DAF’s new premium trucks for the vocational and construction industry will enter production early 2023 and are available to order now.

The New 2, 3 and 4 axle DAF XDC and XFC trucks are the perfect vehicles for vocational and construction applications, combining high payloads with excellent on and off road performance and a sturdy design.
