Gliders

THE NEXT BEST THING TO A NEW TRUCK

  • A glider gives you everything a new truck offers except for two of the three main driveline components
  • You can either recapitalize any of these from your existing unit or spec a factory-installed remanufactured engine or new rear axle

BACKED BY A NEW TRUCK WARRANTY

  • Every factory-installed component on a Glider is covered by Western Star’s New Truck Warranty

GET IT THE WAY YOU WANT IT

  • Spec a Western Star Glider with the exact configuration and equipment you need for your specific operation
  • Gliders include the latest design enhancements and are available in day cab or sleeper units with a wide range of options

EXTEND THE USEFUL LIFE OF YOUR OLDER EQUIPMENT

  • If you have an older truck with a robust powertrain and need to update the cab or frame, a Western Star Glider is the perfect solution
  • Gliders are a smart business decision

A WESTERN STAR GLIDER GIVES YOU MORE FOR YOUR HARD-EARNED MONEY THAN ANY OTHER OEM

  • From the complete cab and chassis to the value of the components in the loose parts box, to the New Truck Warranty, choosing a Glider kit provides you with all the benefits of a new truck at a fraction of the cost (Up to 40% less than the cost of a new truck)

REDUCE YOUR COST PER MILE

  • Running a Glider means you also save big on maintenance and service costs and reduce profit-killing downtime

FASTER LEAD TIME

  • A Glider can be ordered to your precise specifications
  • Your Glider can be assembled in less time than a typical in-frame overhaul

HIGHER RESALE VALUE

    • Your Glider comes to you as a new model year truck with a new VIN, which means it retains better resale value than many used units

Glider F.E.T. and EPA

      • Gliders are released without the 12% FET assessment, as 2 of the 3 major components a transmission, engine, or rear axle must be missing and assumed customer supplied.

      • 75% Safe Harbor Rule – customers completed Glider Kit (purchase price, labor, parts) must be 75% or less of the cost of a new vehicle (Fair market price). Potential 12% savings right off the top – USA only.
