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.

Stylish grille

Stylish with chrome accents

The prominent grille accentuates the elongated front, supporting excellent aerodynamics. The grille has premium chrome accents and is topped with a distinctive logo bar with a glossy inlay to emphasize the vehicles’ class.

Steel bumper

Elegant and can stand a knock

The elegantly designed and nicely integrated steel bumper has a composite skin and consists of three elements to combine lowest vulnerability with low repair costs in case of damage.

LED skylights

Jewels on the crown

A typical DAF innovation: Skylights. Offering additional light, beautifully integrated in the roof design. And indeed: looks fantastic. Skylights are standard on the XG and XG⁺ – with a specific design for each model.


Key to world-class efficiency

Attractive tapered cab shape with seamlessly fitting body panels and sleekly mounted windscreen and doors result in outstanding aerodynamic and fuel efficiency.

Air intake

Neatly integrated in the front

The position of the air intake is carefully chosen. Cool air reaches the engine via the shortest route, which supports fuel efficiency. And the air intakes are obviously nicely integrated in the grille, adding to the sturdy yet elegant design.

LED Headlights

Truly eye-catching

The headlights of the New Generation DAF are real eye-catchers. They have integrated Cornering Lights and are crowned with characteristic Daytime Running Lights. Moreover, they feature full LED technology for best vision at night.
