Peterbilt will produce a Model 389 Canadian 150th Anniversary edition to salute Canada’s history using distinctive styling and exclusive Canadian features, the truck manufacturer said.

The truck is available for order through Peterbilt dealerships with production scheduled for May 15, the Denton, Texas-based company said.

“The Model 389 Canadian 150th Anniversary edition holds its own among Peterbilt’s most iconic trucks,” Peterbilt General Manager Kyle Quinn said in a statement.

Exterior features include a louvered grille sheet reminiscent of the 1950s Model 351 grille; exhaust stacks etched with "Canada 150" and a numbered Canadian 150th Anniversary emblem on each side of the sleeper. Inside are Peterbilt premium leather seats featuring a Maple Leaf on the headrest.

The confederation of Canada was formed by the British North America Act of 1867.
