If the CF75 is just the CF65 but bigger, the 85 is a completely different animal. Equipped with a monster 12.9 litre engine, the DAF CF85 is a much bigger truck than the others in the CF series, but with the added flexibility that is missing from the super-heavyweights like the XF105.
The 85 is suitable for a range of operations, but leans towards longer haulage, equipped as it is not only with a very powerful engine, but a spacious cab too. The latest models feature climate control for even more comfort. The entire CF series is made for heavy duty use, but none more so than the 85. A perfect all-round vehicle then, with an emphasis on intensive haulage.
See below for more information on the 85, along with TruckLocator’s verdict.

The MX 12.9 litre engine is the thing to note when it comes to the CF85. DAF are famed for their engines, which are now produced by PACCAR – DAF’s parent company. Extremely hardwearing, as well as powerful and economical, the MX in particular is as close to “best in class” as you can get when it comes to the solid all-rounders as opposed to the more specialist vehicles.
There are 4 power outputs available under the 85’s hood: 360hp, 408hp, 462hp and, at the top of the range, 510hp. This customisation is extended to the axles too, with both single and double driven formats in two, three or four axle configurations available. There’s even the option for reduced engine capacities, which can deliver even more power and torque, but reduce the amount of fuel consumed, making the 85 an extremely economical truck indeed.
In fact, the 85 (along with its smaller siblings) incorporates new DAF SCR technology to ensure it complies with Euro 4 and 5 emissions levels.
One of the most economical long haulage trucks on the market. Great for drivers going up and down the UK on a regular basis.
