Peterbilt Continues to Throttle the Competition

In today’s post, we’re sending out kudos to Peterbilt. Open for business since 1939, the 78-year-old firm undoubtedly ground the gears of their stiffest competition last March. It was then that government officials revealed their intentions to include some of the company’s semi-trucks in California’s much-heralded voucher program.  Also titled the Green Truck Purchase Assistance Incentive Program, it’s much-heralded for a reason.

Being Among the Elite Takes Focus

Not every semi-truck meets the program’s strict, eco-centered standards. So it’s widely considered a coup to have one vehicle accepted into the program. As of March 2017, Peterbilt had three. All three feature Cummins gas engines, which are continually raising the bar on near-zero emission standards across the nation. And Cummins isn’t the first or only brand engine that Peterbilt traditionally relies on to make their semi-trucks more eco-friendly.

In years past, they’ve also favored Cat® C15 ACERT™ Industrial Diesel Engines. Also known to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Standards, the firm’s line of C15 engines were previously installed in many of the used Peterbilt Trucks found on the JRuble & Sons Truck Sales’ lots. Examples include, but are not limited to this 2003 Peterbilt 378 and at least one from 2006. Accordingly, JRuble & Sons Truck Sales customers can rest easy that any used Peterbilt rolling off of the lot will be kind to the environment.

And given the current focus on diesel fuel related issues, this peace of mind is undoubtedly of great value to many currently operating in the semi-truck industry. Of course the reasonable price tags commonly affixed to used Peterbilts don’t hurt matters either. At JRuble & Sons Truck Sales, they occasionally sell for as low as $35,000. To take one for a test drive and examine Peterbilt’s eco-friendly features first hand, please contact the JRuble & Sons Truck Sales Team today.
