Set-Forward Sterling for vocational market

Sterling Truck Corp has unveiled a new heavy-duty vocational truck for the construction and government markets.

The Set-Forward Sterling truck features an updated look, improved functionality, and increased visibility, plus it's easier to maintain. As the latest addition to the Sterling family of work trucks, the Set-Forward Sterling is available in 101- and 111-inch BBCs.

With a sturdy new chrome grille and chromed headlight bezels, the Set-Forward Sterling is aesthetically eye-catching, but its practical benefits start with the hood.

First, the hood's shape was designed with ultra-visibility in mind with a 12 percent better sight range. Constructed from New Polymer substrate, the hood also provides improved durability over fiberglass and 20- and 25-pound weight reductions on the 101- and 111-inch models, respectively. Plus, getting to the engine is easier with advanced hood access door openings of more than one foot and updated hood isolator guides that allow for better alignment and stability.

Another maintenance feature on the Set-Forward Sterling is quick-change headlamps. They are easily serviceable from the front of the vehicle without bezel removal.

The Set-Forward Sterling has an updated quarter fender that allows a 111-inch BBC model with a vertical frame-mounted exhaust to hold up to 120 gallons of fuel with a clean CA. The 101-inch BBC model can hold up to 70 gallons with a clean CA.
