Introducing the DAF LF
The DAF LF is the company's smallest truck, ideally suited to (and indeed specifically designed for) light freight, multi-drop and inner-city distribution.
Operators will enjoy the benefit of up to 6 percent lower fuel consumption thanks to the latest PACCAR engines, highly efficient gearboxes, aerodynamic design and lightweight yet strong chassis. Service intervals are an impressive 60,000km.
Drivers will love the LF too, its luxurious new interior providing the ideal working environment. Safety and comfort technology are at new levels for a distribution truck, as are flexibility and versatility; the LF can be configured in 60 different wheelbase variants.
Chassis and Design
Featuring the modern and familiar DAF front-end design, the LF looks great on the road. The exterior has been enhanced with stylish adornments such as the silver grille strips and redesigned DAF logo.
It's certainly not form over function however; the new roof air deflectors and fenders improve fuel economy by up to 4 percent. Equally useful is the new vision door - a glass panel at the bottom of the door gives drivers a better view of their nearside, improving safety in the urban environment.
Like all DAF trucks, the LF has a lightweight and strong chassis that offers excellent comfort for the driver, and increased payload for the operator - the largest in its class, in fact.
Tail lifts, box bodies, tippers, cranes and other types of superstructures can be rapidly fitted to the chassis of the LF thanks to the Body Attachment Module programme.
Technology and Safety
Spending time in the DAF LF is made as relaxing and easy as possible because of the integration of luxury features and advanced technology. The well-equipped dashboard is home to the Driver Information Panel that gives the driver access to everything they need to be efficient and comfortable.
The controls for the hands-free TruckPhone, TruckNavigation Radio, engine brake and cruise control are all within easy reach of the driver.
Safety features on board the LF include:
- Lane departure warning - alerts the driver if the truck strays from its lane erroneously
- Adaptive cruise control - adjusts speed automatically based on the speed of the vehicle in front
- Advanced emergency braking - autonomously applies the brakes if an imminent collision is detected
There are three choices of engine with the LF, all of which make use of the latest common rail diesel technology to meet Euro 6 emissions standards:
- PACCAR PX-4: 3.8-litre 4-cylinder
- PACCAR PX-5: 4.5-litre 4-cylinder
- PACCAR PX-7: 6.7-litre 6-cylinder
Each engine option can be specified with a range of power outputs depending on the use case of your truck. Clever, compact design and engine innovations result in quiet performance and up to 6 percent lower fuel consumption.
Super-efficient manual, automated and automatic gearboxes can be selected, depending on the engine option you configure.
