Are Peterbilt 389 Trucks Discontinued in 2023? Peterbilt Motors Company is an American vehicle maker company. Peterbilt is a manufacturer of heavy-duty (Class 8) and medium-duty (Classes 5-7) commercial vehicles founded in 1939 after acquiring Fageol Truck and Motor Company. Peterbilt, which bears the name of the company founder T. A. “Al” Peterman, has been a subsidiary of PACCAR since 1958 and operates alongside Kenworth Truck Company (though serving as one of the longest-running marketplace rivalries in American truck manufacturing).
Since it was difficult for third-party equipment manufacturers to adapt to its European-based design, the business discontinued the 210/220 medium-duty CEOs in 2007. The Model 379 was decommissioned and replaced by the Model 389 after 20 years of manufacture. The 389, which has the same cab as the 379 from 2005 to 2007, has a longer hood than any Peterbilt conventional before, with better headlamps and aerodynamic upgrades.
There are rumours that Peterbilt is going to discontinue the Model 389. It is not officially confirmed, but people are looking for answers to how Peterbilt can discontinue 389 without announcing its successor. 2024 may be the final year for Peterbilt 389.

Which model will replace 389?
Peterbilt has always been so specific about its model discontinuation and model successors. As we hear about the discontinuation of 389, people are wondering what will be the next model. Which model will replace the 389, or can we say it will be the successor?
There is a possibility that Peterbilt will shift its focus from the 3XX line to the 5XX line. Three hundred eighty-nine will discontinue by the end of 2024, and 589 will be the successor. Peterbilt will launch a model that will carry the fusion features of previous models 389 and 379.
People love the classic look of 389 and are worried if they will be able to get the same look or the same vibe in the upcoming models. Peterbilt always knows its audience anyway and will never lower its expectations.
