DAF LF Series
Dedicated to distribution
The new DAF LF Series
Designed to deliver
Elected ‘International Truck of the Year’ in 2002, the DAF LF Series
has been a winner right from the start. With its modern and
spacious cab design, low chassis weight for the highest payloads
in its class, tight turning circle for maximum manoeuvrability, easy
cab access and car-like driving characteristics, the DAF LF Series
is the ideal partner for city and regional distribution. More powerful
engines, optional AS-Tronic automated gearbox, a mildly restyled
exterior and upgraded interior design, make the new LF Series
even more attractive than its award-winning predecessor.
