LISLE, Ill., July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- International Truck today announced James Wright as the recipient of the Diamond Renewed™ Used Truck Giveaway promoted during this year's Mid-America Trucking Show. The promotion drove traffic to the International Used Truck booth and increased awareness of Diamond Renewed, the industry's most comprehensive certified used truck program.
"We are raising the bar with our Diamond Renewed certified used truck program by providing our used truck customers with a new truck experience," said Mike McMahon, vice president of International's Used Truck Organization. "And, we couldn't be happier to provide James Wright with this experience."
Wright received his 2012 International® ProStar® tractor at the company's Nashville Used Truck Center. The International ProStar is equipped with a MaxxForce® 13 engine and a 9-speed manual Eaton® Fuller® transmission.
"Receiving this truck is a dream come true, a thrill of a lifetime for my family and me," said James Wright, Diamond Renewed ProStar recipient and driver for Knight Transportation. "My wife and I were looking to purchase a truck in the next several years, drive for a while and then retire. Now, with this ProStar, we can accelerate the timing of our goal."
Wright recently turned in his company truck and leased his new, Diamond Renewed ProStar to Knight Transportation, effectively making him an owner-operator. He currently lives in eastern Arkansas with his wife, Katrina and son, Billy.
The Diamond Renewed program puts used International trucks through the industry's most comprehensive inspection and mechanical reconditioning process. Technicians review more than 180 checkpoints and conduct mechanical and aesthetic reconditioning including cleaning or replacing diesel particulate filters (DPF) and diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC), exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) calibration software updates, checking and repairing brake systems, conducting major body repair, painting the frame rail and more. Vehicles also come standard with the industry leading System1™ confidence warranty, in addition to the OnCommand™ Connection remote diagnostics system, and Repair Advocate.
Diamond Renewed trucks are available at any of the 15 International Used Truck Centers nationwide and the International Truck dealer network. For more information on the Diamond Renewed program, and to find the nearest Diamond Renewed truck near you visit http://www.internationalusedtrucks.com.
