Autocar LLC has announced the expansion of its dealer network in the western United States with the addition of eight new dealers. These new locations will join two existing Autocar dealers in the region: Lonestar Trucks of Houston and Oakland Truck Center of Oakland, CA.
The new dealers are Phoenix-based Trucks West Inc, Central Valley Trucks of Fresno, CA, RDO Truck Center of Riverside, CA, Seattle-based Husky Truck Center, HT&T Company Inc. of Honolulu, San Antonio-based Grande Truck Center, Truck West of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM, and Lonestar Trucks of Buda, TX.
Each dealer will market and support the Autocar Xpeditor, a heavy-duty LCOE truck that is widely used in refuse collection and in other vocational markets. Autocar now has a total of 24 dealer locations in major markets across the United States.
Autocar, LLC was formed in July 2001, when parent company Grand Vehicle Works Holdings LLC purchased the Autocar name and the Xpeditor truck line from Volvo Trucks North America Inc. The company last week announced the hiring of Richard “Dick” Frisbie as its director of dealer development.
