And when you start with a new durable and reliable truck, you have a great used truck that endures the used truck market with pride. Perhaps a truck with brains and brawn is just right for you. One thing is for sure, people know a Star when they see one.
The history of Western Star Trucks dates back to 1967, with company headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio and production in Canada. Its focus was to meet customers’ demands for logging, mining and oil field heavy-duty trucks. Custom built Class 8 trucks for vocational applications followed. Western Star’s niche in the market is heavy-duty custom trucks for long haul and vocational applications. The company earned its reputation as a manufacturer of a high quality and distinctive line of premium trucks; a reputation it still enjoys today, with new and used Western Star trucks.
