Rainier Truck & Chassis LLC of Yakima, Wash., is moving into pilot production mode on its all-new cabover truck.
The company has secured a 6,000 square-foot seven-bay facility on 13.5 acres with plenty of room for future expansion. Product rollout of their low cost, common cab/chassis COE platform has not changed.
Rainier will offer the Cummins B6.7 300 hp and 325 hp diesel models first, then the 6.4L 370 hp Hemi gasoline, followed by an AWD battery-electric model.
In addition, the company announced that it is looking to compliment its Class 4-7 cab-over-engine lineup and has got the initial go ahead to accept and offer a U.S. version of the Sinotruk A7 Class 8 cab-over engine.
