One lucky Landstar All-Star will drive home from Landstar’s Annual BCO All-Star celebration this week in a brand new 2016 Peterbilt 579. The cherry red Peterbilt 579 features a PACCAR MX-13 engine and 13-speed Eaton Fuller transmission. The truck’s spacious, ergonomic cab and generously sized 80 inch sleeper were designed with operator comfort and productivity in mind.
The interior of the truck features an audio system with satellite radio as well as MP3, USB and iPod options. The cab also features a SmartSound insulation package. SmartSound includes both acoustic and thermal insulated properties within the cab and significantly reduces noise and improves in-cab comfort.
The 579 includes headlamps that are touted as being the safest, the best and the brightest. According to Peterbilt, engineers traveled to 10 different countries testing and improving the headlamps, which resulted in the best down-road visibility and coverage headlamps and fog lamps in the industry.
The Model 579 is built to last. According to Peterbilt, the cab is solid and durable with high quality fit and finish. The in-mold process Peterbilt uses, is designed to embed color directly on to the dash and give the interior of the truck a long-lasting finish, eliminating fading, scratching and peeling.
The Landstar All-Star Truck Giveaway Powered by Comdata will be the grand finale of July’s All-Star Celebration being held at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort in Orlando July 1st – 3rd. The event is held each year to honor Landstar Million Mile Safe Drivers and Landstar Roadstars for their safe driving records and professionalism.
