THE BULLET: The new Bullet rounds out Sterling's medium-duty truck line. It's intended for applications such as landscaping and utility.
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Sterling Trucks came out firing at the NTEA Work Truck Show recently, introducing the latest addition to its mid-range lineup – the Bullet.
The Bullet joins the Class 4/5 markets and will be available at select Sterling dealerships this fall. Sterling officials said the truck is ideal for construction, landscaping, municipal, utility and P&D applications.
“Together with the Sterling 360, the Bullet makes Sterling the only commercial vehicle manufacturer to offer a complete line of Class 3-8 vehicles,” said Matthew Stevenson, director of light commercial vehicles for Sterling Truck Corporation. “We gave this truck the tagline Nothing Stops The Bullet because there isn’t an application this truck can’t tackle. Like all Sterling trucks, the Bullet can be customized for the demands of any job.”
The Bullet comes standard with a Cummins 6.7L ISB engine with exhaust brake, a PTO prep package and a 34-inch wide, 50,000 psi frame that allows for easy body builder upfit, the company announced.
It’s available in four different wheelbase configurations and a quad cab version is available. Two- and four-wheel drive versions are available as well as snow plow and towing packages.
Sterling officials said the Bullet can be spec’d with either a manual or automatic transmission. Other options include: cruise control; fog lights; power windows and locks; power trailer tow mirrors; and several radio options. Customers can upgrade to a premium interior package that includes a navigation radio available with GPS.
Select dealers in both the US and Canada will take delivery of the Bullet in the fall.
“Sterling dealers are work truck experts and are equipped to provide customers with all of the solutions they need to get the job done right,” said Stevenson. “Plus, customers will get the kind of service they expect from a commercial vehicle dealer: service centers with longer hours, and technicians trained to get trucks back to work fast.”
