Daimler Truck North America launches Extended Optimum for used truck coverage

The extended coverage comes with genuine OEM parts and service through DTNA's dealer service network.

Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) has launched Extended Optimum, customizable coverage for Freightliner and Western Star trucks that are out of warranty or do not have extended coverage.

The company says it will also be available for those who already own a used truck and for those who are in the process of buying one. The extended coverage comes with genuine OEM parts and service through DTNA’s dealer service network, performed by certified Freightliner, Western Star and Detroit technicians.

“Until now, fleets and owner-operators with expired coverages have resorted to non-OEM warranty providers,” shared Kelly Gedert, DTNA’s general manager aftermarket strategic value chain and technology. “Many simply go without coverage. With Extended Optimum, customers now get protection for their investment and the peace of mind that comes with DTNA’s extended coverage, comparable to the original base warranty.”

“Extended Optimum covers what our customers need,” said Kirk Lewis, executive vice president of I-State Truck Centers. ”Coverage from the manufacturer also means no delays chasing down repair and expense approvals. That’s good for customer uptime, and great for our service department throughput.”
