A half-million-dollar roadshow has shown off the new Euro 6 DAF CF to more than 1200 New Zealand transport operators and drivers.
Five new CFs and a couple of trailers had already clocked-up a total of more than 22,500-kilometres after seven of the 11 stops in the nationwide tour. The first new-model DAF XF in the country is to join the roadshow for its last two promo events.
The roadshow took in stops stretching from Whangarei to Invercargill – with videos and photos posted to YouTube and Facebook en route viewed 1.25million and 62,000 times respectively.
DAF distributor Southpac Trucks says the launch marks the make's biggest product change in almost 12 years.
The four-model CF range takes in an 8x4, a 6x4 rigid, a 6x4 tractor unit and a 4x2 tractor unit, with three cab variants and gross combination ratings up to 58 tonnes.
The new CFs come with either an 11-litre or 13-litre PACCAR MX engine – the smaller powerplants rated between 370 and 450 horsepower, while the MX13 comes with 430-530hp outputs.
The trucks have TraXon automated manual transmissions as standard.
Also standard (with the TraXon spec) is the full suite of active safety features, including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, advanced emergency braking, lane departure warning and vehicle stability control.
