The flagship of the DAF truck range, the XF is found on nearly all long-distance DAF trucks in the UK. There is a smaller alternative in the CF range, but the superior width and height of the XF makes it a first choice for drivers – and that means the boss takes notice.
Available as a Space Cab sleeper or a Super Space Cab, all of the XF tractor units shown on these pages should be post 2014, Euro 6 versions.
There are still plenty of model variants to choose from, including the fleet 460hp versions up to the top power 530hp flagships.
Available in a range of different axle configurations from a 4×2 to an 8×4, DAF are famous for offering the truck buyer choice. That means you need to question the spec of each truck carefully to make sure that it is the right one for your needs.
The most common is the XF460 – more than enough power for the job – but that’s not enough for many, so there are also 480, 510 and 530hp versions of the tractor unit – all with the same MX13 engine.
If you are looking to spend less or perhaps need a pre-Euro 6 for export, then you should be considering the DAF XF105 tractor units.

That’s why the new DAF XF looks a little premature already wearing Turners of Soham livery well before production of the trucks has even commenced. Turners has taken delivery of their New Generation DAF XF 450 FTG 6x2 tractor unit as part of the latest phase of DAF’s extensive Europe-wide ‘pre-production’ field test programme Turners’ New Generation DAF XF joins a fleet of 1200 vehicles, of which 750…>
