New Design Features

New roof air deflector and fenders improve aerodynamics and lower fuel consumption by up to 4%.

The benchmark for driver comfort

A comfortable driver is a better driver. That’s why the interior is such an important part of The New LF. The moment the driver steps into the cab, he or she enjoys the highest standard of comfort, user-friendliness and safety.

The perfect working environment

The dashboard is both attractive and comprehensively equipped, offering maximum ease of use. All controls are within easy reach and arranged logically by function. And the extra-large capacity of the heating and ventilation system means the interior can quickly be brought to the ideal temperature. Perfect when drivers get in and out of the cab many times a day.

Great storage space

The New LF offers extensive storage options: a spacious lockable compartment on the engine tunnel, side pockets in the door panels and two large compartments above the windscreen. The Extended Day Cab and Sleeper Cab come with three additional lockable storage boxes behind the seats as standard; one with a 23-litre capacity, and two with 39-litres.

Ergonomic design

The adjustable, multifunctional steering wheel contributes to an excellent driving position. There are integrated switches for operating the cruise control, engine brake, radio and hands-free TruckPhone, while the climate control and the double DIN slot for the optional Truck Navigation Radio are all within easy reach.

Highly adjustable seat

The New LF has an extremely comfortable driver’s seat, with a large range of adjustments; of up to 210 mm longitudinal and 120 mm in height. This results in the perfect driving position for drivers of all heights. An air sprung driver’s seat with optional heating is also available.

Powerful engines

The New LF offers a wide range of engines. These include the powerful four-cylinder 4.5-litre PACCAR PX-5 and the six-cylinder 6.7-litre PACCAR PX-7. Thanks to new software and optimised heat and air management, maximum torque has been increased and kicks in at lower speed in both engines.

Faster rear axle ratios

Taking advantage of the new faster rear axle ratios of up to 3.31:1, engine speeds are reduced by 150 to 200 rpm at cruising speed. Combined with the engine innovations, this driveline optimization delivers fuel savings of up to 6%, while driver comfort is further improved by lower engine noise.

Economic and quiet

PACCAR PX engines comply with the latest emission requirements, boasting the lowest emission values ever. What’s more, their compact design, with various components integrated into the engine block and the cylinder head, means the engines are remarkably quiet which adds to driver comfort.

High-performance gearboxes

For maximum efficiency, The New LF is supplied with a wide selection of manual, automated and automatic gearboxes in 5, 6, 9 and 12 speeds. An Allison automated transmission is now also available on the most powerful versions of The New LF.

One of the major innovations introduced into the New LF is the new 3.8-litre PACCAR PX-4 engine which is available for the 7.5-tonne version of the New LF. DAF is introducing this new engine specifically for its LF City for light, urban distribution applications, for which an engine with a displacement of just under 4.0 litres is optimal.



The Perfect Base To Build On

Low kerb weight and high load capacity put The New LF at the top of its class, meaning pure profit for your business. With its modern, strong and light chassis, The New LF does not compromise on robustness and flexibility.

Fully optimised suspension

The New LF offers an extremely comfortable driving experience. The front suspension is fully optimised to offer the perfect balance between damping, lateral stability and stiffness. The front axles (from 3.6 to 7.5 tonnes) offer ample capacity to prevent overloading with diminishing loads. And its unsurpassed manoeuvrability is due to the fact that it has the smallest turning circle in this segment.

High-performance axles

With a choice of different rear axles and final drive assemblies, there is an optimised LF for every application. The axles have been developed with top performance, long service life and maximum driving comfort in mind: from the lightest, 5-tonnes SR 5.10 axle to the 13-tonnes SR1344 rear axle for extra capacity on the 19-tonnes LF. A differential lock is available as an option on almost all axle variants — for maximum traction and vehicle control, whatever the circumstances

Even greater load capacity

The LF already has the largest load capacity in its class thanks to a wide range of chassis lengths and wheelbases. In The New LF, wheelbases extend up to 6.90 metres. This results in possible load lengths of over 9 metres giving the truck even greater load capacity. Longer wheelbases also mean the vehicle can provide fuel capacity of up to 1,240 litres making it unique in its class. This gives The New LF a large operating range and enables the driver to stop for fuel where prices are at their lowest.

Superb bodybuilder friendliness

The New LF also incorporates innovations that improve bodybuilder friendliness. These include new, ex-factory Body Attachment Module (BAM) programmes that enable fast, easy installation of box bodies, tail lifts, tippers, cranes and other equipment. In addition, more combinations of wheelbases and rear overhangs offer extra flexibility. This enables the chassis to be configured in production ready for bodies and superstructures of all types.
