Long-time Peterbilt customer Mike Lowrie, president of Mike Lowrie Trucking in Dixon, Calif., stands next to the 1,000th Peterbilt 589 built by the manufacturer.

Peterbilt has reached an impressive milestone with over 5,000 orders for its Model 589, as reported by company officials. The company also celebrated a significant event by delivering its 1,000th Model 589 to long-term customer Mike Lowrie Trucking, located in Dixon, California.

“As the proud recipient of Peterbilt’s 1,000th Model 589, I am reminded of the legacy that my family has shared with Peterbilt. From humble beginnings in 1947 with my dad’s first used Peterbilt, to us purchasing our new Peterbilt’s together in 1978, to now operating nearly 250 Peterbilt trucks, they have been more than a truck manufacturer; they’ve been a partner in our success,” said Lowrie, president of Mike Lowrie Trucking.

The Model 589 showcases standout exterior features, including 15-inch air cleaners, 7-inch diameter exhaust stacks with shields, and Peterbilt’s lighting package, which highlights LED daytime running lights for a bold front-end look. Inside, drivers benefit from high-performance automatic climate control, plenty of storage options, and larger dual cup holders for enhanced comfort.

“The Model 589 represents the heritage of the Peterbilt brand and was designed to make a statement with its bold style, superior craftsmanship and advanced technologies,” said Jake Montero, Peterbilt assistant general manager, sales and marketing. “The successful combination of tradition and innovation has generated tremendous driver acceptance and we’re excited to see 589s on the road and performing well for fleets like Mike Lowrie Trucking.”

The Model 589 integrates numerous advanced technologies, such as an air-assisted hydraulic clutch for manual transmissions to reduce driver fatigue and maintenance needs, as well as the latest collision mitigation and driver assistance technologies for improved safety. Various configurations are available, including a day cab and multiple sleeper options like the 44-inch low roof, 58-inch UltraLow, low and high roof, 72-inch low and high roof, and 80-inch high roof designs.

The exclusive Legendary Package includes Peterbilt’s 1939 vintage script logo and hood spears, polished fenders, and bright rockers. Inside, luxury touches include rich leather-grain seats with the vintage logo on the headrest and unique stitching.
