DAF recently won Good Design Awards in the Product Design Automotive and Transport category for its CF and XF truck ranges. A panel of 55 judges awarded the two trucks for their ergonomic designs, durable build materials, and “superior NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) qualities,” according to the jury’s verdict. The jury also stated that the CF and XF “set a new industry standard for truck style, function, safety, sustainability, and performance” by being aerodynamic, efficient, and more environmentally friendly.

Those two models, plus the LF, have won several other awards in their most recent iterations, including Construction Truck of the Year, Fleet Truck of The Year, Green Truck of the Year, and International Truck of the Year.

“More Than A Symbol”

“The Good Design Award is more than a symbol of design excellence—it represents the dedication of DAF Trucks to ultimately increase the profitability of our customers’ business on the one hand and to make the daily work of the DAF truck drivers ultimately comfortable on the other,” says Richard Zink, director, marketing and sales, and member of the board of DAF Trucks.

More DAF CF & XF Details

Both the DAF CF and XF are available with PACCAR MX-11 or MX-13 engines that produce between 299 and 530 horsepower (222 and 395 kilowatts) and from 1,350 to 2,600 newton-metres of torque. The CF also has the option for a PX-7 engine that produces between 234 and 325 hp (174 and 242 kW) and from 900 to 1,200 N-m of torque for urban operations. They also come standard with 12- or 16-speed TraXon automated transmissions.

The CF and XF have higher payloads than past iterations and service intervals of up to 200,000 kilometres. They are also body builder-friendly, opening them to a wide range of potential configurations and applications, although DAF says they are designed from the ground up for distribution, whether it be local, regional, national, or international.
