Daf has delivered a fleet of 35 new model CF and XF demonstration tractor units to its UK dealer network.

They include a variety of new CF and XF models including FTG 6x2 twin-steer and FTP pusher-axle tractor configurations, in both Space and Super Space cab variants.The new CF and XF rigid and tractor line-up has up to 7% lower fuel consumption thanks to innovations and higher ratings to the Paccar MX-11 and MX-13 engines, a ZF TraXon gearbox, rear axles with faster gear ratios, improved powertrain software and cab aerodynamic aids.

There is an enhanced MX Engine Brake and a compact Exhaust After-treatment System (EAS) - combining to reduce kerb weight by 130kg on the FTG 6x2 tractor model. The EAS is 40% smaller allowing extra chassis space to accommodate ancillary blowing and or tipping equipment.

Maximum service intervals are increased to 200,000km and there is a new trim, a new dashboard layout and new temperature/climate controls. Across Europe, there are more than 200 of the new CF and XF demonstrators, manufactured in Eindhoven and Leyland.

Since the CV Show in April, Daf has received 600 UK orders for its new CF and XF models and the first customer vehicles will start to appear on the roads over the next few weeks.
