Rainier Truck & Chassis is switching to new round LED turn & headlamps for 2018 production and a new horizontal chrome grill.
According to the truckmaker, the new chrome grill and headlamp designs were adjusted because the company wanted a "bolder look that would stand out in the public eye and from the crowd on dealer lots." The company also wanted to offer a more cost-effective, simpler solution in replacing expensive cracked and leaky headlamp modules.
The trucks have a target production launch of summer 2018 for the Class 4-5 and Class 6-7 truck models.
The new, low-cost and low-tech lineup of cabover trucks. With a starting MSRP of $37,185, the trucks will be powered by the Cummins 6.7L diesel, rated at 300 hp and 600 lb.-ft. of torque or the 6.4L HEMI that achieves 370 hp and 429 lb.-ft of torque, which is standard on the Class 4-5 models. A 6.7L Cummins diesel engine that achieves 325 hp and 750 lb.-ft. of torque will be standard on the Class 6-7 models. In addition, load leveling air suspensions will be standard on all models.
