Premier Truck Group opens new Amarillo, TX facility

The new facility replaces an old location; Premier Truck Group says customers will notice the improvements.

Premier Truck Group (PTG), a commercial truck dealer group owned by Penske Automotive Group, announced that its Amarillo, TX dealership relocated into a new, updated facility. PTG tells us that the custom-built 115,000-square-foot dealership offers service, parts and sales of new and used vehicles, as well as collision repair services for Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) brands for heavy- and medium-duty trucks, buses and motorhome chassis.

PTG says the new facility increases the dealership’s ability to service customers by offering 30 service bays, four Express Assessment bays, two quick-lube bays, 16 collision center bays with leading frame alignment and frame correction equipment and chassis dynamometers. The dealership also offers RV parking with 30/50 Amp electrical outlets, along with improved customer amenities like a customer lounge with shower facilities, entertainment, quiet areas and several food and drink options, according to PTG.

“Our new Amarillo facility is significantly more customer-focused than our previous facility that had been in operation since 1985,” says PTG president Ron Long. “This new facility has been designed with efficiency in mind so that we can maximize customer uptime by returning their trucks to service quickly. It starts in our dedicated Express Assessment bays so our customers’ needs are quickly assessed without disconnecting their trailers. Our larger, air-conditioned service shop allows us to repair more trucks each shift. We have also increased our in-stock parts inventory to increase the speed of repairs, and our new collision center lets us handle everything from small collisions to major wrecks.”

Commercial vehicle and parts brands sold and/or serviced at the Amarillo location include Freightliner, Western Star, Freightliner Custom Chassis, Thomas Built Buses, Detroit, Alliance Truck Parts and all-makes trucks. In addition to servicing customers in the West Texas market, PTG says the facility will also support long-haul trucks traveling coast to coast.
