The PACCAR PX-7 295 hp Euro 6 engine, available in the DAF LF 290, features advanced software and optimised heat and air management systems to comply with the latest emission requirements. These improvements also increase maximum torque that transfers to a ZF AS Tronic 6 speed automated gearbox fitted as standard equipment. Optional ZF Ecolite 6 speed manual, ZF Ecomid 9 speed manual, ZF AS Tronic 12 speed automated and Allison 5 speed automatic gearboxes are also available. Together with new, faster rear axle ratios the result is lower engine speeds and increased fuel savings.
