Discover the New Generation DAF XF, XG and XG⁺

The new benchmark in efficiency, safety and driver comfort: ‘International Truck of the Year 2022’

When dimensions are given space, something unique is born

The European Commission has introduced new masses and dimensions regulations with the objective to push the boundaries in terms of both emissions (CO2), traffic safety and driver comfort. DAF is the first of all European truck manufacturers to introduce a full new generation of trucks featuring a highly attractive and very aerodynamic design, using the additional freedom offered by the new legislation.

Class-leading efficiency, safety and driver comfort come together in the game-changing New Generation DAF trucks. That is why they have been awarded ‘International Truck of the Year 2022’, the most prestigious recognition in the truck industry.

Large, larger, largest

The New XF, XG and XGrepresent DAF new generation of long distance trucks, ready for the future. Taking full advantage of the new European Masses & Dimensions, all three cab variants excel in a beautiful and highly aerodynamic design. In addition, they offer a huge interior space for unmatched driver comfort.

Industry-leading fuel economy

  •     PACCAR MX-11 and MX-13 engine innovations
  •     New efficient TraXon automated gearbox
  •     New high efficiency rear axles with faster ratios
  •     Aerodynamic optimizations
  •     Advanced powertrain software features

Higher torque at lower revs in combination with optimised drivelines, new high-efficiency rear axles, enhanced electronics performance and aerodynamic improvements result in increased fuel efficiency of up to 7% for long-haul journeys. This could save you thousands of euros a year!

Higher payloads

  • A new, highly efficient yet ultra-compact Emission Aftertreatment System (EAS) saves 50 kg in weight
  • Redesigned engines and chassis optimizations also contribute to further weight savings.

Depending on axle configuration, these features lower vehicle weight by up to 100 kg. This allows higher payloads, which are especially important in applications where every kilogram counts.

Efficiency of the future

With the New Generation XF, XG and XG+, DAF is introducing a new benchmark in transport efficiency. The sophisticated long haul vehicles feature an aerodynamic design which is leading the way in the industry. Also significant innovations to the PACCAR MX-engines, TraXon automated transmission and DAF rear axles contribute to a fuel efficiency gain of up to no less than 10%. Low vehicle weight and excellent serviceability contribute to class-leading payload and uptime.

Safety of the future

The New Generation XF, XG and XG+ offer outstanding safety for (co-)drivers as well as other road users. Large windows, ultra-low window belt lines and for instance the practical kerb view window result in a new standard for direct vision. And with a robust cab structure, class-leading ergonomics and smart features to make driving even safer, the New Generation DAF trucks are the industry leaders when it comes to road safety.

Driver comfort of the future

From the driveline to the suspension, from the cab interior to the seats and bunks, we’ve seized every opportunity to give drivers superb driver comfort. The result is the smoothest ride on the market combined with the best environment for driving, relaxing and sleeping. The New Generation DAF starts a new era in driver comfort.

Ready for the future

The world we live in is changing. The need to reduce CO2 emissions because of the climate change, to improve air quality in urban areas and to enhance traffic safety of especially vulnerable road users go hand in hand with driver scarcity and the need to attract good and professional drivers.
