Peterbilt Truck Pictures - Page 4
In 1980, a third Peterbilt plant opened its doors located in Denton, Texas. Manufacturing at Newark, California was
discontinued although management and engineering and development remained there. The 80's were to
bring on a lot of model change for Peterbilt. The Model 352 was replaced in 1981 with the Model 362
COE. Fuel efficiency still playing a part, Peterbilt's response was the Model 377 conventional and model
372 COE. Also, the popular Peterbilt Model 359 was replaced in 1986 with the Model 379 with fiberglass tilt
hood. In 1989, the Peterbilt company turned 50 years old, so to recognize its achievements, a limited
edition model 379 was introduced powered by a new Cummins engine, the 444XT.
