Innovation for safety and efficiency
Predictive Cruise Control and Predictive Shifting (optional for models with PACCAR MX-11 or MX-13 engine) are new innovative technologies. Advanced GPS technology is used to determine the exact location of the truck and the driving conditions to be expected in the next 1 to 2 kilometres. The systems ‘think ahead’ and anticipate hills and descents. Within the specified range, Predictive Cruise Control determines the ideal speed and Predictive Shifting the ideal gear. Thanks to these systems, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions can fall by 3%, especially when driving on hilly routes.
Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), which prevents jack-knifing and roll-overs, is fitted as standard, as is the Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), that slows the vehicle down independently in an emergency. For maximum safety, the CF is also fitted with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW) as standard.* This takes the pressure off the driver and increases safety for other road users.

The special Silent version opens up further transport options in urban environments. By implementing a range of smart technologies, including special engine software and an encapsulated gearbox, the noise in ‘Silent mode’ is restricted to a maximum of 72 dB(A). This makes the vehicle ideal for loading and unloading goods in areas where evening, night-time or early morning noise restrictions apply. The CF Silent is available as a tractor or rigid unit with a PACCAR MX-11 engine.
