Pete 389 Overview
It was in 2006 when Peterbilt introduced the 389 at the Mid-America Trucking Show. It was conceived to replace the 379- 127 inches. This model is at 131 inches which makes it the Pete with the longest hood ever offered. Compared to other models, it features new headlamps and a stylish wraparound design, new fender front and rear trim – a styling cue back to the old 351 fender. It is offered in the same configurations as its predecessor.
Production for the 389 started in late 2006, making it a 2008 model. The built after January 1, 2007 EPA compliant engines have dictated the changes to the new Petes. The model is available in Australia as a right hand drive conversion. There are converted cabs available for export around the world.
Until today, the 389 is still in production. We offer clean used Peterbilt 389 trucks.
