The DAF LF55 is used further up the weight range than the LF45 with which it shares a cab. Typically operative up to 18 tonnes GVW, the LF55 has a 6-cylinder engine instead of the LF45’s 4-pot, (Although the LF45 can be specified with the 6-cylinder if needed). The LF55 was discontinued at the end of 2013 when the new model naming convention came into play. The truck still exists with the same cab, albeit with modernised panels and Euro 6 engines. If you need a Euro 6 truck for entering the Low Emission Zones, then you should be looking at the Euro 6 DAF LF trucks for sale – if not, and your budget is not huge, then an LF55 will definitely still do the job. The truck was mainly sold in the UK as an 18 tonner and was available as a sleeper cab and even a crew cab for recovery operation. A highly flexible truck, it could be specified for any type of operation, from a refrigerated truck to a tipper and a box truck to a car transporter. The LF55 shares its cab with the less popular (in the UK at least) Renault Midlum and Volvo FL. The cab is actually made by Renault and shipped to Leyland for final assembly in the UK.
