The DAF XF105 is the truck builder's latest model to comply with Euro 6 emissions standards.

DAF Trucks revealed its new Euro 6 emissions-compliant XF105 prime mover at the IAA truck show in Germany. 

According to DAF, the truck's dramatic new look provides a visible leap forward over the previous incarnation of the XF105, with the new-look cab complimenting the Euro 6 version of the Paccar 12.9 litre MX engine.

The MX engine uses selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) to meet Euro 6 regulations.

The common-rail injected, variable-geometry turbo engine now uses a catalytic converter in conjunction with an active diesel particulate filter (DPF) for emissions control.

DAF claims the system keeps exhaust temperature at the optimum level to avoid the need for active regeneration of the DPF.

The revised engine will be available in three ratings: 300kW, 340kW and 375kW, with a torque range spanning from 2,000Nm to 2,500Nm.

Production is expected to start in early 2013 for the European market.
