The DAF New CF and XF feature completely new powertrains with highly efficient transmissions and rear axles. Together with the new compact after-treatment systems, sophisticated software and aerodynamic optimizations, these innovations result in a fuel efficiency gain and CO2 reduction of an impressive 7%.
Gianenrico Griffini sums up the jury’s choice as follows: “With the introduction of the New XF/CF, DAF has delivered a series of medium and heavyweight trucks that set a new standard in terms of the energy efficiency of the driveline and overall performance. The DAF team can be very proud of its ground-breaking trucks!”
Griffini is keen to explain: “The new driveline, based on the optimised MX-11 and MX-13 six-cylinder in-line engines – complete with the new ZF Traxon 12-speed gearbox – and the new DAF rear axles result in improved driving characteristics, lower fuel consumption and seamless gear-shifting. The members of the jury appreciate the manner in which DAF has endeavoured to squeeze the maximum amount of energy out of every drop of diesel. This has been achieved through improved combustion, less internal friction in the engine, ‘down speeding’, improved ‘predictive controls’, a new electronic architecture and reductions in the weight of components like the aftertreatment system.”According to Griffini, the IToY jury lauds the advanced features of the New CF & XF driveline, which allow the truck to operate longer in the ‘Eco-Roll’ modus. This is due to the improved integration of the engine and the automatic gearbox with the latest GPS-based Predictive Cruise Control functions.
