Caterpillar will offer a special coverage program on all 2007-model Cat engines delivered to end-users in the U.S. or Canada during the first half of 2007 for commercial on-highway service.

The new program, called ‘Caterpillar Pure Confidence’, includes Extended Service Coverage (ESC) and the ‘Cat On-Time Promise’. ESC offers a full parts and labor warranty on covered engine and emission components for three years/300,000 miles on all C9, C13 and C15 engines. That’s up from two years but the previous warranty was for unlimited mileage. The coverage is three years/150,000 miles on all C7 engines. To receive this coverage, these engines must be purchased and delivered between January 1, 2007 and June 30, 2007.

And if a 2007-model Cat engine requires repairs that will keep it sidelined for more than 24 hours during 2007, Cat will reimburse the user for a rental vehicle to get the load to the destination on time.

Some restrictions apply, of course. See your Cat or Cat-authorized truck dealer for details of the program.
