The success of DAF Trucks, which is the market leader in the production of trucks with a GVW weighing more than 6 tons in the UK, is unabated. With XF winning four awards in six years, the 20th award, which is a milestone for DAF and Leyland brands, has been received at the MT Awards, which has been going on since 1986.
The influential Motor Transport Awards evaluation panel, which is recognized and respected in the transport industry, consists of high-profile transport operators. All of these operators have a deep understanding of what it takes to build a safe, productive and efficient truck fleet. The evaluation panel stated that “DAF Trucks has introduced a number of important innovations to keep sales of its high-end model at its peak” and that “the XF is a ‘tried and tested’ model”.
The DAF XF is the choice of choice for most of the UK’s leading fleet operators; It has important features such as reliability, superior fuel economy and driver attractiveness. These features are backed up by standard-setting customer support and the DAF dealer network, which is considered the best in the business. Development is key to the success of the DAF XF. The brand’s drive for innovation and improvement will continue, with the start of mass production of the recently launched Next Generation DAF XF, XG and XG+ trucks this fall.
Laurence Drake, Managing Director of DAF Trucks UK, said: “For truck operators, DAF is synonymous with reliability, economy and comfort. Our latest victory provides further evidence to support this. Our continued win against tough competition is a testament to the truck’s quality and overall performance. Exceptional dealership and sales Together with our after-service, the XF is an extremely attractive business proposition and our Next Generation DAF will continue to follow that trend.”
