DAF's New Generation XG⁺ has been awarded ‘Best UK Diesel Tractor’ at the 2022 Fleet News Awards. The same manufacturer also won the ‘Best Two-axle Lightweight Rigid Truck’ award for the DAF LF, as well as the ‘Best Rigid Truck’ award for the DAF CF.
As DAF happily boasted in its press release, the XG⁺ also won the ‘International Truck of the Year 2022’ award for the New Generation DAF XF, XG and XG⁺. On top of that, the company has scooped national ‘Truck of the Year’ awards in both Portugal and Romania.
“The XG⁺ sets a new benchmark in the tractor market. DAF’s flagship is stylish, packed with innovation, impressive to drive, offers the largest cab in the industry and is comfortable to live with. Fleets benefit from competitive operating costs and the renowned excellence of DAF’s support to maximise uptime. Driver appeal and fleet appeal make a winning combination,” said the Fleet News Awards judges.
When it comes to the CF, the jury stated:
“The CF is a clear winner in the heavy rigid category. It is by far the best all-round rigid package meeting the needs of fleets across all types of industry sectors. Reliability, payload, driver appeal, dealer support and favourable operating costs are among its many winning attributes.”
Finally, judges also praised the LF:
“The LF dominates the UK’s 7.5-tonne truck market and it’s easy to see why: excellent reliability, competitive pricing and the best dealer back-up in the business give fleets huge confidence in the truck. It is also ergonomically designed with the driver in mind, with a good sized, well equipped, comfortable cab. It’s the proven choice across all types of fleet activity.”
