The brand-new Peterbilt 589 and its 'Legendary' trim package

As most in Overdrive’s audience know by now, our sister publication CCJ’s editor Jason Cannon got a very close look at the new Peterbilt Model 589 out in Texas last week, complete with a test drive of the unit loaded at 65,000 pounds gross combination weight: What hasn’t been emphasized in much of the coverage thus far is a new trim option featured on that truck -- the so-called “Legendary Package.”

At its core, the Legendary essentially is the Model 589, but gets several exclusive accents and special treatments.

The Legendary Package, along with the Model 589, will be available for customer orders in August for 2024 delivery.
