DAF XF Awarded ‘Master Truck of the Year 2016’
The DAF XF 460 FT Super Space Cab won the prestigious ‘Master Truck of the Year 2016’. The XF won the award for its leading overall efficiency and driver comfort. DAF Trucks’ extensive network of highly professional European dealers were instrumental in selecting the XF as ‘Master Truck of the Year 2016’.
The Master Truck of the Year is judged by twelve leading Polish magazines which specialize in road transport. All competing vehicles were evaluated on engine performance, driving characteristics and driver comfort. In addition, the total cost of ownership and quality of back-up services were taken into account.
In its report, the jury wrote, “The DAF XF 460 FT Super Space Cab is a very driver-friendly vehicle. DAF has been perfecting the XF for years, ensuring it meets the requirements of its users to the largest extent possible.”
They went on to say, “This vehicle is a state-of-the-art transport solution. It offers excellent performance combined with low fuel consumption. Important as well, is that operators have the support of a very effective service network which enables the lowest cost of ownership and the highest vehicle uptime.”
In response to the recognition, Richard Zink, Director of Marketing and Sales at DAF Trucks said: “This prestigious award proves what our customers already know: when it comes to both efficiency and driver comfort, there is no better choice than DAF. This June, the XF won Motor Transport’s ‘Fleet Truck of the Year’ award in the UK and we are now extremely honored with this special recognition in Poland, where we entered the market 20 years ago and where DAF is market leader. Winning the title ‘Master Truck of the Year 2016’ once again underlines the excellence of our products and organization.”
