SHHH...DAF enjoys the silence


... with the unique, low-noise Silent range. The DAF LF, CF and XF trucks use a series of smart technologies to keep noise generated by the truck to a level below 71dB(A). This means that they meet the strict 'QuietTRUCK' standards, so they can be used for loading and unloading during the evening, at night or early in the morning in areas where a maximum noise level limit applies.


The DAF LF, CF and XF Silent brings a wealth of benefits to your business. They open up a wider range of transport options to you in urban environments, and they ensure that local residents get an undisturbed, peaceful night's sleep resulting in improved customer satisfaction.

At your fingertips

How does it work? It's simple: The driver simply presses a button on the dashboard to activate 'Silent mode'. The engine software immediately switches to a programme that limits torque and engine speed. In addition, the transmission automatically shifts up at lower speeds. Gearbox encapsulation also helps to reduce the noise. As a result, the DAF Silent Trucks are welcome visitors, even at unsociable hours.

Plenty of choice

The DAF Silent is available as a XF, CF and LF rigid or tractor unit, with a choice of various cab options, chassis lengths and axle configurations. The DAF CF and XF are equipped with the powerful and economical 10.8-litre PACCAR MX-11 Euro 6 engine, with power ratings from 220 kW/299 hp to 330 kW/449 hp. The compact and ultra-efficient  DAF LF is powered by the 4.5-litre PACCAR PX-5 engine with 135 kW/184 hp.
