DAF developed three engines for the CF: the 6.7-litre PACCAR PX-7, the 10.8-litre PACCAR MX-11 and the 12.9-litre PACCAR MX-13. All available with a variety of power and torque ratings. The strict Euro 6 emission requirements are met thanks to ultramodern and thoroughly tested technologies including common rail fuel injection, a turbo with variable geometry, exhaust gas recirculation and ingenious exhaust gas after-treatment. Further refinements mean that they are now even more efficient. Good for the environment and for your returns.


PACCAR MX-13 engine

For the most demanding applications, the CF can be equipped with the powerful 12.9 liter PACCAR MX-13 Euro 6 engine. Developed for a service life of no less than 1.6 million kilometres. With ratings of 303 kW/412 hp, 340 kW/462 hp and 375 kW/510 hp and impressive torque of 2,000, 2,300 and 2,500 Nm respectively. The maximum performance is available at low engine speed and across a broad speed range. That means less gear shifting and so pure driving comfort.

PACCAR MX-11 engine

Ideal for distribution transport, but also for more demanding applications where a low unladen weight and the lowest fuel consumption are of ultimate importance. The PACCAR 10.8-litre MX-11 is available in no fewer than 5 variants (210 kW/286 hp to 320 kW/435 hp with maximum torque of 1,200 to 2,100 Nm) and is up to 3% more economical than the already highly efficient MX-13. It is also 180 kilograms lighter. This means even more opportunities to further increase your return.

PACCAR PX-7 engine

This powerful, quiet and economical 6.7-litre engine is highly suited for intensive distribution transport, with the lowest unladen weight for the highest possible payload. Available with ratings from 172 kW/234 hp to 239 kW/325 hp and corresponding torque output from 900 to 1,200 Nm. This provides excellent driving characteristics, with favourable fuel consumption and low emission values. The low noise level is nice for the driver and good for the environment.

Exhaust gas After treatment System (EAS)

To meet the stringent Euro 6 emission requirements while ensuring the highest fuel efficiency, DAF has combined its advanced PACCAR Euro 6 engines with various exhaust gas after treatment technologies: an SCR catalytic converter and a diesel particulate filter.



DAF CF Euro 6 ASTronic The CF features new or further refined transmissions for a perfect match with the powerful PACCAR engines. Manual, automated or fully automatic, there is always a gearbox that is perfectly suited to your specific use.

The PACCAR PX-7 engines are linked as standard with a manual 6 or 9-speed gearbox. The PACCAR MX-11 engines up to 271 kW/369 hp are delivered with a manual 8 or 9-speed gearbox with overdrive. The two most powerful models, just like the PACCAR MX-13, have a manual 12 or 16-speed gearbox as standard with Servoshift for the greatest shifting comfort.

The PACCAR engines can also be combined with the automated AS Tronic gearbox. For PACCAR PX-7 engines with 6 or 12 gears and for MX-11 and MX-13 engines with 12 or 16 gears fine-tuned for heavy and on/off-road transport and the transport of liquids (MX-11 and MX-13). Thanks to EcoRoll the truck ‘rolls’ downwards in a controlled manner on gentle descents with the engine at idle. Fast Shift - with faster shifting between the higher gears - also contributes to favourable fuel consumption. New software and sensors ensure excellent behaviour when driving off and manoeuvring.

A fully automatic transmission is available for special applications — ideal for vehicles like fire engines and trucks for refuse collection.


Lighter rear axle

The CF drive line is efficiently completed by the SR1344 rear axle with a technical load capacity of 13 tonnes. It is even lighter while retaining robustness and reliability and is delivered as standard for combination weights of up to 44 tonnes and with engine torques up to 2,300 Nm. The SR1347 rear axle is supplied for heavier applications. Both of them can optionally be combined with the air sprung Stabilink axle suspension, which is lighter and boasts high stiffness for optimum driving characteristics. For off-road use DAF's renowned 8 rod tandem axle suspension is available. It provides 270 mm of articulation and unrivaled stability.
