HISTORY OF SELECTRUCKS

IN CELEBRATION OF OUR 25TH ANNIVERSARY, WE ARE REFLECTING ON THE KEY MILESTONES IN OUR HISTORY.

WE ARE SELECTRUCKS

 

From the first SelecTrucks Center we opened, to the flexible financing programs we launched, to the first out-of-the-box programs we created, our journey began with one goal in mind: supporting our customers.

We are SelecTrucks, and we are proud of the support that we have offered our customers for 25 years—and counting.

SELECTRUCKS LAUNCHED

We opened our first (and second!) Center in 1997. For the first time, customers could visit a SelecTrucks Center to receive support from our trusted advisors, who were—and continue to be—truly invested in the success of our customers.

BEGAN FINANCING OWNER-OPERATORS

SelecTrucks launched our first owner-operator financing program that catered to the specific needs of the owner-operator customer base. This program gave SelecTrucks Centers the ability to offer owner-operators a wide variety of down payment, interest rate, and term options through our preferred partner, Daimler Truck Financial. Nearly 25 years later, we continue to offer flexible financing solutions for our owner-operators. Learn more

INTRODUCED THE LEGACY TRUCK PROGRAM

The Legacy Truck Program was an innovative solution developed to remarket cab-over-engine models. By removing and remanufacturing the drivetrain to factory specs, then installing the remanufactured drivetrain in a brand-new steel day cab model, SelecTrucks was able to develop "Legacy" trucks that looked—and ran—like new, and were available for a fraction of the price of a new truck. This enabled us to offer a wide range of affordable inventory to our customers.

LAUNCHED RECONFIGURED DAY CAB PROGRAM

After the success of our first program remarketing reconfigured truck models, we made a few improvements, then launched our Reconfigured Day Cab Program in 2002. Named for the reconfiguration of 72” raised roof sleepers into day cabs, this program offered more customization options than ever before, allowing our customers to customize their day cabs by selecting from a series of specs.
