at NTEA Work Truck Show 2006

Sterling Truck Corporation unveiled an exciting addition to its product lineup at National Truck Equipment Association's Work Truck Show in Atlanta. Introducing a new low cab-over-engine truck, Sterling is the only truck OEM in the industry to offer a full line of Class 3-8 commercial vehicles.

"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 the Freightliner group.

The truck is available with a 4,9 l diesel engine, six-speed automatic transmission, and up to five wheelbases to accommodate 12- to 20-ft bodies. Additionally, the vehicle comes standard with comfort features like air conditioning and is available in five different colors.

Ideal for applications such as wholesale and retail services, pickup and delivery, landscaping, and construction applications, the new Sterling truck features outstanding maneuvrability, low maintenance requirements, and a modern and comfortable cab with the easiest entry and egress in the industry.

"We are proud that, with the introduction of this new truck, we have achieved Sterling's vision of being a full-line provider of vocational trucks," said Mr. Patterson. "Not only is this a logical next step in the growth of the company, but it also provides a platform for future product introductions."

Sterling already is well-positioned in the medium- and heavy-duty market with its three conventional models - the A-Line, L-Line, and the Acterra - plus the Class 6-7 cab-over Cargo. With a wide array of vocational applications from on-highway LTL and regional haul to construction and refuse, Sterling's hard-working trucks are distinguished by outstanding dependability, performance, and comfort.

Sterling Truck Corporation, based in Redford, Michigan, produces heavy and medium-duty custom work trucks for regional hauling and diverse vocational applications. Sterling is a member of the Freightliner group of companies. Freightliner is a subsidiary of DaimlerChrysler, the world's leading commercial vehicle manufacturer.
