DAF XF Trucks for Sale (30)

The DAF XF range has been a best seller throughout Europe since its original inception as the 95 way back in 1987.

The new shape right-hand drive Euro 6 XFs that we buy in the UK are all assembled here at DAF’s assembly plant at Leyland.  As DAF are UK market leader, you can be sure that when you buy a used new shape DAF XF there will be plenty of available parts from a well-organised dealer network.

The trucks themselves are put together using proven components and, as you would expect, the levels of comfort, noise and gadgets have increased over the years as new models are launched.  Read the guide below to find the right model year for you.

Used DAF XF Trucks

Most of the XF trucks on in the UK’s used truck market are tractor units.  The most common power output for these tractor units is 460 – which was replaced in 2018 by the 480 – so this will increase in popularity over time.

If not used as a tractor unit, chances are it will be a rigid with a costly body built – a crane truck for example.  This is because most operators will opt for the smaller CF cab for use as a rigid to maximise payload.

DAF XF A Brief Model History

So you know which XF (or 95 series/95XF XF95 or XF105) you are looking at buying, take a look at our timeline to see when facelifts took pace and new engines introduced.

1987 – 95 Series Launch

The XF as we know it now was originally launched as the 95 series back in 1987.  It was a new cab design that DAF worked on with ENASA of Spain (which was subsequently acquired by Iveco in the nineties) who branded it as the Pegaso Troner.

The new truck also had a new engine – the WS/ATi, an 11.6 litre, straight 6 cylinder engine with outputs up to 383hp at launch.

That year, the accolade of ‘International Truck of the Year’ was awarded to the 95 series for the following 1988 year.

1990 95 Series Euromaster Launched

This was a beefed up, flagship version of the 95 series with 400hp from the 11.6 litre engine.

1992 Facelift for 95 Series

The 95 gets more power – up to 430hp and a minor facelift.

1994 – Launch of the Super Space Cab

Just one year after DAF Trucks going into bankruptcy, the ‘new’ company introduced the Super Space Cab – effectively a standard cab with a taller roof bolted on.  Under the cab was now an option to specify Cummins’ 14-litre N14, rated at 507 bhp, (left hand drive only) ZF’s new aluminium-cased 16S221 gearbox was fitted, with optional intarder.  In the UK the examples sold were all the 11.6-litre engine already in use.

1997 95XF Launched

Just one year after PACCAR’s acquisition of DAF NV saw the use of ‘XF’ in the model for DAF’s top truck in their range.  Still using the original cab design, the appearance was significantly updated.  A new 12.6-litre DAF engine replaced the old 11.6-litre unit.  This 24-valve engine was available at outputs from 380 to 483hp.

Again, the 95XF won truck of the year in 1998 – the year after its introduction.

1997 DAF 95XF Launched
1997 saw the ‘XF’ for the first time as the DAF 95XF was Launched

2005 – XF105 Launched

A revamp for the launch of Euro 4 emission standards. The cab gets larger – although still using the basic shell from 1987, modern looks soften the front the XF – at the time DAF claimed that the Super Space cab was the largest cab in the market. The new 105 gets the brand new 12.9-litre PACCAR MX engine with outputs up to 510hp to replace the 12.6-litre DAF unit.

2005 DAF XF
The XF still looks similar to the 2005 version launched for Euro 4

2008 – All DAF XF Trucks are sold as Euro 5 EEV as Standard

2011 – Revised MX engine for XF

The 12.9-litre MX gets new pistons, optimised fuel injection and a fully encapsulated exhaust manifold unit to give lower fuel consumption available in outputs up to 460 hp.

2011 – DAF XF105 Ate Launched

This special version of the XF was fitted with extra fuel saving gadgetry as part of DAF’s ‘Advanced Transport efficiency’ programme.

2012 – Euro 6 XF Trucks Revealed (Current New Shape)

With a new appearance and a revised 13-litre PACCAR MX engine, the XF was ready ahead of schedule to meet the incoming Euro 6 emissions standard.  The MX received new common rail technology, variable geometry turbo and outputs up to 510hp.

Keeping the same basic cab, albeit updated to compete with all the new cab designs launched by the competition, the XF did receive a new chassis and a revised interior.

2015 – XF SILENT models launched for operation in urban areas

2017 – Facelifted XF Launched

This facelift was more about improving fuel consumption than significant changes to appearance.  Worth waiting for this one as DAF claimed a saving of some 7% over the earlier model. You can read the blurb published by DAF at the time of the launch in our information section here.

The 2017 range relaunch including the DAF XF -7% on fuel

In addition to the fuel savings, the new range included a weight reduction of some 100kg compared to the earlier model.  Half of this saving is thanks to a lighter and more compact DPF system which means more room on the chassis for air tanks, fuel tanks and tool lockers.

There is a new-look interior with the launch of the Exclusive Line with ‘cognac’ coloured dashboard, door panels and leather seats. The instrument panel has been redesigned with new characters for a more modern display.

Subtle external changes are to improve aerodynamics. There is a new sun visor design  plus wheel bay extensions and flow guides behind the grille for optimal aerodynamics around the truck and through to the engine bay. New grille closures reduce drag, and new gap closures between the headlight and corner deflector give the best possible aerodynamics.

2021 Brand New cab for XF

The end of 2021 finally saw a replacement cab for the ageing XF.  Launched at the same time as the brand new flagship truck, the XG and XG+ that both sit above the XF.

2021 Model Year DAF XF
New Generation DAF XF truck offers maximum view on the road

The main visual change is the elongated front to improve aerodynamics and 7.5cm lower cab height improving the direct vision for the driver.

DAF have claimed an up to 10% fuel improvement over the earlier XF with revised drivelines using both the MX-11 and MX-13 PACCAR engines with outputs from 370 to 450hp with the 11-litre and 430 to 530 with the 13-litre.

The XF has the widest range of engines with a choice of 6 outputs compared to just four for the XG.

Although the XF has the smallest of the cabs on offer (compared to the larger XG and XG+) there is still around 2 meters of internal standing height.

If upgrading to the XG, you would get more room outback and a little more standing height, whilst the XG+ has the same room behind the driver is has a taller cab than the XF.

2021 Model New DAF XF on the Road

Why are DAF’s New XF & XG Trucks Big News?

To start with, any new cab in the heavy truck sector is big news as the life cycle of a truck cab is much longer than that of car, for example. The outgoing cab for the DAF XF originated back in the late 1980s. Sure it has had upgrades and new panels and extensions to the roof etc. but essentially the basic design remained the same. DAF may be a more extreme example of a long-lasting cab design, but the cabs made by most truck manufacturers last more than ten years. So, simply a new cab from DAF is big…

New DAF XG is the DAF XF Successor

When a truck manufacturer brings out a new model, they are usually highly detailed in their description. Over the course of a few years this information starts to get put to one side and forgotten about as newer models take their place. As a used truck site, we feel that is important to keep this information available for many years to help the buyers of these trucks when they are in their second and third lives. So there's little point in editing down the information, for we need it to be comprehensive. So, take the superlatives as they were written…
