Peterbilt adds the Platinum Graphite Interior Package to its lineup of premium cab and sleeper trim options for the Models 579 and 567, Peterbilt Motors Company announced during the Mid-America Trucking Show.

“The driver shortage is affecting some carriers’ plans for expansion and premium equipment is a proven way to attract and retain premium drivers,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President. “Peterbilt’s Model 579 is already a driver favorite, and the new Platinum Graphite Interior Package adds a level of distinction and luxury that rewards operators.”

The new interior features exceptional fit and finish, luxurious materials and a rich charcoal color scheme, accented by Peterbilt-red stitching. Among the features are:

  • Black leather seats with red stitching, including the Peterbilt logo.
  • Soft-touch, leather-feel upper dash material.
  • Exclusive blackwood trim on dash panels, door panels, storage header area and sleeper cabinets.
  • Blackwood shifter knob when spec’d with a manual transmission.
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel with red stitching.
  • Premium-touch door pads.
  • Black carpet throughout.

The Platinum Graphite Interior Package is available now for Peterbilt Models 579 and 567 in daycab configurations or when equipped with a 72- or 80-inch sleeper. The new interior was on display at the show in both a Model 579 and Model 567.
