A New Era of Class. The New Model 579 sets the standard for technology, fuel efficiency and driver comfort.
What happens when the best isn’t good enough?
You make it better, and that’s just what we did with the New Model 579. From a new, distinctive exterior design to a revamped interior, it was designed with purpose and to be driven with passion. With improved aerodynamics combined with cutting-edge technology, the New Model 579 isn’t just sleeker, it’s smarter. A New Era of Class has arrived—come along for the ride.
Enhanced Aerodynamics Improved Fuel Economy
The New Model 579 offers the most advanced aerodynamic features and packages, improving fuel economy and your bottom line. The new hood and bumper were designed for maximum aerodynamic performance. The new air dam below the bumper further improves aerodynamics while maintaining ground clearance. New sculpted mirror heads and arms maximize aerodynamic efficiency. The new A-pillar fairing directs air across the side of the cab to improve aerodynamics and reduce noise. New wheel well closeouts provide added aerodynamics and accommodate more tire options than ever before. Tandem fairings and wheel covers were added to work with the new chassis fairings to reduce drag.
