Peterbilt Special-Edition Model 389X Elevates Styling, Exudes Class

Peterbilt’s Model 389 is one of the most distinctive-looking heavy-duty trucks on the road, and the manufacturer goes above and beyond with the new, limited-release Model 389X. Exterior additions like the highly polished hood crown, centerline hood trim, chromed bumper, and polished fenders enhance the classic styling of the long hood and steel louvered grille. And inside the cab, drivers are met with a new Black Pearl burl woodgrain and embroidered 389X badging on the headrests.

Elegance & Class

The Peterbilt Model 389X features bold styling throughout the exterior and interior. For example, the exterior lighting package includes LED amber light strips, adding a soft glow to the air cleaners and under the rocker panels. The stunning lighting also reflects off the bright cowl skirts, chrome exhaust stacks, and fuel tanks. The interior features black-finish trim accents to compliment the Black Pearl burl woodgrain, along with bright chrome grab handles.

“The new 389X is superior in every detail,” says Robert Woodall, assistant general manager of sales and marketing at Peterbilt. “From its classic design and high-quality craftsmanship to its exclusive chrome elements and details both inside and out, the 389X will quickly become the most desirable truck on the road. I look forward to seeing this great truck and its proud owners on road across North America very soon.”

Peterbilt 389X Details

Production of the Model 389X is limited to 1,389 trucks. Peterbilt offers the special edition as a day cab or in a 72- or 78-inch (1,829- to 1981-millimeter) sleeper configuration. The limited-edition models can be individually identified from the serialized, chrome dash plate listing the production number of the truck.
