“Keep It a Freightliner” Can Help Owners Maintain Value, Ensure Performance and Deliver Peace of Mind

Genuine Freightliner parts are used on the truck production line, so they are engineered to fit seamlessly on a Freightliner truck and are designed to deliver optimal performance.

“It’s an accepted principle in the trucking business that using genuine parts ensures better value for the truck owner,” said Todd Hooper, director of parts and service marketing for Daimler Trucks North America. “But selecting genuine parts also means knowing that your vehicle is maintained with parts made of the highest quality materials, engineered for the best possible durability and performance, and designed to perfectly fit your truck.

“Freightliner encourages all of its customers to ‘Keep it a Freightliner’ and with Freightliner’s reputation as the longest-lasting trucks on the road, second, third and even fourth owners can protect their trucks by using genuine parts,” continued Hooper.
