LF City

The LF 7.5t City

The ideal truck for light, urban distribution

Intensive city distribution with a lot of stop-start traffic creates specific demands for operators and their trucks. That is why DAF has developed the LF City. With a new, efficient and responsive 3.8 litre PACCAR PX-4 engine optimised for urban operation, combined with the unsurpassed manoeuvrability and low kerb weight that makes the DAF LF unique in its class. The capabilities of a truck with the agility of a van.

Optimal engine displacement

One of the major innovations introduced into the New LF is the new 3.8-litre PACCAR PX-4 engine which is available for the 7.5-tonne version of The New LF. DAF is introducing this new engine specifically for its LF City for light, urban distribution applications, for which an engine with a displacement of just under 4.0 litres is optimal.

The advantages of the LF 7.5t City


Thanks to a maximum wheel deflection angle of 53°, the LF has the smallest turning circle in its class. Needless to say that this is achieved with effortless steering. Next to that, the LF provides a perfect trade-off between compact cab dimensions and inner cab spaciousness.

Easy to connect

The electric and electronical system can easily be connected with that of the superstructure to ensure proper operation of the vehicle applications with user friendly messages on the DAF instrument panel.

Load capacity

Thanks to the lowest chassis weight in its class, and nine different wheelbases of up to 5.00 metres to choose from, an impressive maximum load capacity is realised. This ensures a flexible base for any application.


The LF can be specified with several safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control including Forward Collision Warning and Advanced Electronic Braking System, a kerb view window and a reverse warning system which ensure safe manoeuvring through urban environments. An air bag and a fire extinguisher are also available, increasing safety in emergencies.
