DAF will reveal the New Generation DAF XD at the IAA in Hanover, Germany, this September.

The New Generation DAF XD is based on the platform of the ‘International Truck of the Year 2022’, the multiple award-winning XF, XG and XG⁺ long haul trucks. Premium features – including aerodynamics, powertrains, seating position and fit and finish – will now also be introduced in the distribution and vocational segment.

The New Generation DAF XD will become available on top of the popular DAF CF distribution and vocational trucks. Production is planned to start in Spring 2022.

The DAF XD has a large windscreen and large side windows with ultra-low belt lines. A low cab position adds to optimal direct view, as does the optional curb view window. Ultimate indirect view is guaranteed thanks to the unique DAF Corner View and DAF Digital Camera System.

Fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions are realised through the cab aerodynamics, a new PACCAR MX-11 driveline and advanced driver assistance systems. The DAF Connect fleet management system provides for time saving over the air software updates.

The New Generation XD offers superior accessibility for the driver, with a spacious cab with volumes of up to nearly 10m3. The dashboard features fully digital instrument panels. Ride and handling benefit from a completely new design of the chassis front-end, cab suspension and rear axle suspension.
