Stainless steel clad bumper now standard on Peterbilt 387

| 2/22/2002

Peterbilt Motors Co. recently announced the aluminum stainless-steel clad bumper is now standard equipment on the Peterbilt Model 387.

"Enthusiasm for the new bumper has been high, so it was a natural decision to make it the standard bumper for the Model 387," says Dan Sobic, Peterbilt assistant general manager. "It's aerodynamic, lightweight and extremely durable."

The bumper's mirror-finish, stainless-steel surface is 10 times thicker than chrome plating for improved corrosion resistance, and the aluminum substructure reduces weight by about 50 pounds compared to chromed steel bumpers.

Optional chrome mirror housings are also available, combining with the bright-finish bumper to create a complete chrome appearance package. Additionally, the bumper is backed with a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty.
