Earlier today Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) unveiled the brand new Western Star platform in the United States.
As the official distributor of Western Star Trucks across Australia and New Zealand, Penske has worked closely with DTNA over several years throughout the development process of the new trucks and will continue to do so in the lead up to the launch in our local markets.
Comprising the toughest, most tested, and most durable Western Star trucks, the new trucks will build on the rugged American heritage of the Western Star brand, with the technologically-advanced safety and performance features that tomorrow’s market demands.
“We are thrilled to see the brand new Western Star platform unveiled today in the United States,” said Randall Seymore, President of Penske Australia & New Zealand.
“Here in Australia and New Zealand, Western Star has amassed a loyal customer base over the decades and we are confident our customers will be just as excited by today’s launch.
“We will be rolling out a testing program next year ensuring the new trucks are a perfect fit for our local conditions and applications.
“We will continue to support our current Western Star truck portfolio which has been proven to thrive in our tough and unique conditions, and Penske is committed to continuing to provide our customers with the service excellence they have come to expect.
“Our launch plans for the new trucks will be revealed in due course, however we expect to see the trucks enter our local markets in late 2022 or early 2023.”
