Peterbilt Spotters Guide
The model 362 replaced the "Pacemaker" 352/282 and 352H at the beginning of 1981. The cabs were more aerodynamic, taller, larger radiator, roomier and more efficient interiors. Everything about 362 was new. The signature design was a large wide windshield with 3 wipers. A 2 piece main windshield was optional. 362E ("enhanced") followed in the '90's and the 372 in '88. 362 ceased production in mid 2005. In the cartoon movie Cars, the Peterbilt seen in the movie was a 362.
