DAF XF Truck of the Year Northern Ireland

DAF XF awarded ‘Truck of the Year’ in Northern Ireland

  • Friday, October 5, 2018
  • Eindhoven
  • DAF Trucks N.V.

The DAF XF has been named as ‘Truck of the Year’ at Northern Ireland’s premier transport industry event – the Export & Freight Transport & Logistics Awards 2018.


It is the fourth time the DAF XF has received a top accolade in markets across Europe, since DAF Trucks’ premium duty truck range – alongside the versatile CF series – was voted ‘International Truck of the Year 2018’ by a jury of 23 international journalists. Subsequently the DAF XF for long and heavy haulage also received national Truck of the Year awards in Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia.

Northern Ireland’s top honor was awarded to the XF after being assessed by a jury panel made up of operators and industry experts from Northern Ireland’s transport industry. They named DAF’s flagship “a clear winner with top marks for performance and reliability, driver safety and comfort, fuel efficiency and aftersales support from the dealership network. The DAF XF comes with a raft of innovative features as standard, adding to class leading transport efficiency.”
