DAF CF Trucks for Sale (145)

The new shape Euro 6 DAF CF is the middleweight truck in DAF’s three-strong truck range.  The CF has gross vehicle weights starting at 18 tonnes and going right up to 32 tonnes for the eight wheel operation and 44 tonnes as a 6×2 or 6×4 tractor unit. On these pages you will find details of the new shape CF trucks launched in the UK for 2014 onwards.  Buyers of older models should be looking at the older naming convention – there were CF 65, CF75 and CF85 trucks prior to 2014 – all of which running at Euro 5 or below.  Since 2007, truck operators can buy ready-bodied DAF CF trucks from the factory, so keep an eye out for one of these in the used truck market.  You won’t find tippers, but you still see 4×2 box and curtainsiders. A solid choice – no transport manager ever got the sack for buying a DAF CF!

More DAF CF Trucks Info

Why buy a new-shape DAF CF?

Designed for local and regional distribution tasks, the truck is available as a rigid or tractor unit.  Whilst the cab is smaller than the DAF XF, there is still the option to specify DAF’s Space Cab for more room in case of nights out.

The CF sits above the Renault-cabbed DAF LF which is used for operation up to about 12 tonnes GVW.

Where the CF comes into its own is a value for money rigid for tipper operations.  A reliable workhorse, the DAF technology is well proven and the dealer support in the UK is very good, as you would expect from the market leader.

The CF is available in a myriad of lengths, heights and wheelbase lengths and – best of all – is assembled in the UK in Leyland.

DAF CF Model History

When buying a truck in the used market, it is good to know which year there was a facelift or a new engine launched.  No point in spending the same money on an earlier model year when you can buy an upgraded version for the same money.

For example, not all 2014 DAF CF’s are the same – some could be Euro 5 and some Euro 6.

1992 – The Early 75 & 85 Series

The DAF CF range arose from the original 75 and 85 series DAFs launched back in 1992.  Looking at the truck from this period, it is still instantly recognisable, using the same cab today.

1998 – DAF CF Series Launched

Three models replaced the outgoing 75 and 85 range.  The CF was now available as the 65CF, 75CF and 85CF (note the numbering was different at launch – not an error here).  It’s anyone’s guess about the numbering of the range – you may think that it was swept engine volume, but the 75CF came with a 9.2-litre and the 85CF came with the 12.6-litre that it shared with the larger-cabbed XF series.

2000 – New DAF CF Series Launched

Essentially a facelift, September 2000 saw the launch of the revised CF.  This time the brand identity was reordered so it became the CF85 instead of the 85CF.  The truck was fitted with the new 9.2-litre PE engine with 360hp.

2006 – New engines for Euro 4

To enable the CF to reach Euro 4 emission standards, DAF launched two new engines, the 9.2-litre PR engine to replace the PE from 2000 – this time with MX injection technology – still with outputs up to 360hp.  The 12.6 litre engine now becomes the MX with power up to 510hp.

2008 – All DAF CF Available as EEV

DAF was the first truckmaker to make all of its trucks available as EEV (Enhanced Environmentally friendly Vehicles) – this includes the CF range.

2010 – DAF CF Tridem Available

Truck operators can now specify four axle 8×2 CF’s with one at the front and three at the rear – ideal for rear-mounted crane operation and for delivery to hard-to manoeuvre locations.

2013 – DAF CF Euro 6 Range Launched

Launched with much fanfare at the UK’s CV Show, the new CF range was not actually sold in Euro 6 form in the UK well into 2014. The new PACCAR MX11 engine features for the first time.

DAF dropped the use of the 65, 75 and 85 in the model designation.  The CF range are now simply called CF… followed by the horsepower.  So instead of the CF85.360 we now have the CF360.  Simple.

Announced at the same time was the CF Construction range of trucks – DAF has not chosen a new brand for their on/off road offering like other manufacturers, (Volvo FMX, Mercedes Arocs, Renault Rand C and Range K) but extended the CF Range instead. The CF Construction has extra ground clearance plus a new tough look.

2015 CF Silent Models Launched

Not a huge seller but the CF silent operates at 72dBA – excellent if that’s your thing!

2017 – New Facelift for CF

Focusing on efficiency, the new CF had new driveline and improved aerodynamics – albeit on the original cab.  DAF claim fuel improvements of up to 7% for the range.

2018 – Hybrid & Electric CF Concepts

DAF have both full battery and diesel hybrid versions of the CF with customers on trial around the Netherlands.

Useful DAF CF Range Information & Glossary

What engine is in the DAF CF?

The CF uses three engines, all from the Paccar range –

  • 7-litre PX-7 from 230 to 320hp
  • 11-litre MX-11 from 300 to 450hp
  • 13-litre MX-13 from 430 to 530hp

The engines all use Euro 6 technology using EGR, SCR, Adblue and an active soot filter.

What is the most powerful DAF CF Truck?

The most powerful DAF CF truck is the CF530 using the MX-13 engine at 530hp (390kW). This is some way off the standards set by the Scandinavian manufacturers, but the CF is not intended as a top powered flagship, but as an every day workhorse.

DAF Reveals New Distribution Trucks

The launch of DAF Trucks’ new, long distance range of trucks was big news – new cab dimensions and a launch when not much else was going on in the way of new truck launches thanks to the worldwide COVID lockdowns. The company is now ready to give us a sneak preview of their new distribution truck.  Not a replacement for the CF range yet, but this may only be a matter of time as the CF range has masses of variants that will take time to transfer over to the new truck design. No news on the name of…
