Navistar relocates the Chicago Used Truck Center to new Joliet location

Navistar opened a new Used Truck Center in Joliet, Illinois. Previously located in Melrose Park, Illinois, the new Chicago Used Truck Center location at 2691 Mound Road in Joliet is home to the Used Truck Center (UTC) sales facility, as well as a calibration engineering center and eight service bays.

Within the past few years, the used truck market has grown exponentially, with residual values rising to record levels and inventory dropping to extremely low levels. In 2021, the International Used Truck team sold all but 800 of the existing 6,000 used trucks in its inventory.  International Used Truck Operations continues to buy and sell inventory to support the International UTC and dealer network, and new truck sales.

The 13,000-square-foot facility is located near multiple interstates, allowing easy access for vehicles and customers, the company noted. The Chicago UTC has partnered with nearby International Truck dealer, Rush Truck Centers – Chicago, to provide maintenance services for the location’s eight new service bays. The dealer service technicians will contribute to reconditioning work and other service center needs.

The engineering calibration center at the Chicago UTC will test future product offerings, complete diagnostics testing, identify any potential risks and test the future products in the field. It also includes four drive-in test bays for stationary vehicle testing.

The updated digital showroom will offer customers the option to browse inventory before visiting the used truck location. A specialized service bay at the Chicago UTC will be designated for customer deliveries, photo shoots and walkarounds to further enhance the digital showroom.
