WILLOUGHBY, Ohio — Sterling Truck Corporation introduced updates to its car hauler offerings, including HX Chassis enhancements and several components include the MBE4000 engine.

“Sterling is continuing to update its product offerings for the car hauler market,” said John Merrifield, Senior Vice President, Sterling Truck Corporation. “The development of the HX Chassis has enhanced our line of heavy-duty trucks, and we are pleased to offer these same benefits to customers in the car hauler market.”

The MBE4000 engine is among many of the new car hauler updates. Designed for on-highway and vocational applications, this engine is one of the strongest and lightest engine in its class, and comes standard with an exhaust brake with no additional weight penalty.

The lightweight 12.8-liter engine offers high horsepower ratings, and uses advanced materials and components to achieve an excellent power-to-weight ratio. This allows for a greater payload capacity and increased efficiency.

Sterling’s updated car hauler features include; a 95″ overall ground to cab unladen height, the shortest height available in the industry without an undesirable cab modification; a 101″ BBC, the shortest hood length available in the industry; a 5-inch dropped front axle with a new design lowered front
Suspension; 10 and 13-speed transmission options; a standard 1,400 square inch radiator; Standard 80-gallon rectangular aluminum fuel tanks

Sterling has designed its car hauler specifically to maximize load capacity, and with a tradition of driver comfort and numerous custom options available, it can be specified to a customer’s requirements and preferred equipment.
