REDFORD, Mich. – Sterling has announced its plans to unveil a new low cab-over-engine truck at NTEA’s Work Truck Show in Atlanta, Ga. March 1-3. Officials say the new addition will make Sterling the only truck OEM in the industry to offer a full line of Class 3-8 commercial vehicles.
The vehicle is slated to roll out in Classes 3, 4 and 5 starting next spring at select Sterling dealerships across North America.
“The new low cab-over-engine truck is an exciting addition to the Sterling brand as we strive to provide our customers with a comprehensive offering for their trucking needs,” said Chris Patterson, president and CEO of Freightliner.
Company officials say the vehicle will feature a low operating cost, competitive price points, and the necessary configurations for dry van, reefer and stake applications.
The truck will be available with a 4.9-litre diesel engine, six-speed automatic transmission, and up to five wheelbases to accommodate 12- to 20-foot bodies.
John Merrifield, senior vice-president of distribution for the Freightliner, said the company has taken steps to make the purchasing process easier for customers. “The trucks can be purchased directly off dealership lots, dealers have been trained to provide expert pre- and post-sale support demanded by commercial truck owners, and prospective customers will benefit from Sterling dealers’ reputation as ‘work truck experts,'” he said.
