    I like the look of it more than the Ram! I wonder if it offers a better warranty? The truck looks exactly the same as the Ram spec wise...

    sterling is not owned by ford, it use to be but back in the late 90's ford sold their heavy truck division. i think the name also changed to sterling when they sold the division.

    I think I saw on the rules and registration that the truck was valued at about $28,000. Depending on what they come up with after putting the options that they think will best suite your needs on it.

    sterling and dodge are both owned by Diamler Chrysler so they are the same truck...much like the GMC and Chevy...i wouldnt be suprised to see dodges get mecedes diesels in them soon as they are owned by Diamler Chysler too, as the bigger sterlings already have mercedes in them...Sterling use to be owned by ford like stated earlier but now that they are Chrylser they take on more of a Freightliner look because Freightliner is another Chysler company....i woulnt mind owning diamler chysler

    Truck looks nice! It would be nice to see them offer a mercedes diesel option but I don't think they are going to part with the cummins power plants! Sterling also runs the Cat engines a lot so maybe a new designed Cat soon to come?????

    Yea sterling and FTL are both daimler chrysler owned i always said they should come out with dodge 4500/5500's as mark said. they have to compete with ford and chevy somehow but they should carry over to the dodge line up too. well see how they do the engine options too but as for tranny id be the AISIN will be in the sterling too as it is allisons biggest competitor and anythings better than previous editions of dodges tranny.

    I like it. I think it is the grille/front end that makes it stand out over the dodge.

    Whomever makes it, that dump bed with a Blizzard 8611 on it would look great.
