The DAF XF has been named Fleet Truck of the Year at the Motor Transport Awards in The United Kingdom.

It becomes the first truck to scoop three successive titles.

The hat-trick of successes for DAF Trucks also sees the XF claim four wins in six years, while posting a 20th category win for the DAF and Leyland brands since the first edition of the awards in 1986. 

“For truck operators, DAF is synonymous with reliability, economy and comfort,” said DAF Trucks UK managing director, Laurence Drake.

“This latest victory provides further evidence to support it. It’s a true testament to the quality and overall performance of the truck that it continues to win against tough competition. When combined with our exceptional dealer and aftersales service, the XF is an undeniably appealing business proposition, and our New Generation DAF will continue the trend.”
