For the second time in a row and the third time in five years, the DAF XF has been named Fleet Truck of the Year by the Motor Transport Awards. The company has won this award 19 times since 1986. The jury that decides the award consists of “influential fleet operators,” according to DAF, who voted for the XF based on “its excellent value for the money, best back-up, and good drive appeal” as well as its fuel efficiency, reduced maintenance costs, and comfortable cab.

An Award Well-Earned

“The title underlines what we already knew: our XF is the best answer for any transport operator who is looking for the best long-haul or heavy transport truck on the market,” says Richard Zink, director of marketing and sales and member of the board of management of DAF Trucks. “Our flagship ticks all boxes for each and every business – reliability, efficiency, driver appeal – supported by the truck industry’s largest and best dealer network and aftersales services program.”
