Safe and comfortable

In the vast majority of new models, the LF 2016 edition is delivered with the latest security and comfort systems as standard. ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control) ensures that the distance to the vehicle in front remains within the set limits. FCW (Forward Collision Warning), in combination with AEBS (Advanced Emergency Braking System), warns the driver if there is a risk of collision and automatically slows the vehicle down in an emergency. 
And LDWS (Lane Departure Warning System) gives a signal if the truck is about to switch lanes. More comfort for the driver and, most importantly, additional safety.


Thanks to improved heat and air management and optimised software, the 4.5-litre PACCAR PX-5 engine (112 kW/152 hp – 157 kW/213 hp) is up to 5% more efficient. Models with the 6.7-litre PACCAR PX-7 engine (164 kW/223 hp – 231 kW/314 hp) now feature an automated 12 speed AS Tronic gearbox allowing combined weights of up to 32 tonnes. And more payload per journey means more efficiency.


The chassis and superstructure now communicate better with each other, thanks to systems such as the CAN bus. This provides the driver with even more options for controlling the superstructure from within the cabin. 
Signals from the superstructure are visible and configurable on the dashboard display. The LF 2016 edition can now also automatically lower the air suspension when the PTO is switched on. This provides greater stability when emptying a tipper, for example.


A completely new aerodynamic package* has been developed for the LF 2016 edition with Day Cab. The new design also features fenders and a roof deflector that connect together perfectly. Providing 4% lower fuel consumption, depending on the application. Optimum aerodynamics for low operational costs.

*Available from early 2016

Eye for detail

The new LED rear lights certainly look attractive, with a unique ascending effect when turning left or right. More importantly, LED lighting has an extremely long service life and helps to ensure maximum vehicle availability. With the LF 2016 edition, we are taking every opportunity to achieve the lowest operational costs. 



The LF is renowned for its low kerb weight, allowing it to carry the largest payload in its class. Even greater load volumes are possible thanks to the seven new wheelbases, which are up to 6.90 metres in length. That means a load length of over 9 metres! Longer wheelbases also allow the vehicle to carry an even greater fuel volume of up to 1,240 litres. Unique in its class. This provides the vehicle with an even greater operating radius and enables the driver to refuel where fuel prices are at their lowest.


The DAF Driver Performance Assistant (DPA) helps the driver to get the best out of the truck. The system displays details about fuel consumption, braking behaviour and tyre pressure, as well as tachograph data. This provides drivers with a clear overview of driving times and ensures that they stay within the limits.
The screen now also shows when the next service 
inspection should be scheduled — ensuring that maintenance is undertaken on time and maximising vehicle availability.

Well thought out

Following on from the PX-7 engine, the 4.5-litre PACCAR PX-5 engine can now also be prepared for the installation of a Frigoblock generator. Thanks to a new oil pan, the generator can be installed compactly, giving optimum ground clearance and minimizing the risk of damage. Well thought out. The LF is now also available with a higher air inlet at the rear of the cabin. This is practical and efficient when a cooling system needs to be installed above the cabin. Or if a height adjustable roof deflector or top sleeper is required.
