Origin

One of the few heavy-duty trucks known for its customizable features, Western Star Trucks was founded in 1967 by the White Motor Company, a now-defunct automobile company founded in 1900 that later specialized in heavy duty trucks. After a joint effort with Consolidated Freightways to sell their Freightliner brand, the White Motor Company established Western Star Trucks to build for the mining, logging, and oil industries on the west coast. 

Western Star Today

Over the years Western Star has developed several amenities. Some of these developments consist of an enlarged cab, wrap-around dash, the Cornerstone Chassis and Heritage Cab to reduce weight and increase payload capacity, and a Supertilt hood. They also entered the Australian market in 1983, expanding their name and globalizing their company. 

In 1990, Western Star was bought by Australian businessman Terry Peabody and eventually won contracts with the Canadian Military. This lead to the production of rigs such as the all-wheel drive M4866S and the 6900XD that had the ability to haul over 500,000 pounds in almost any environment. Its uses expand beyond lumber, mining, and oil and into tow-trucking and construction. About midway through the decade, the Constellation and sleeper cab were built to improve the comfort of the truck, making certain Western Star trucks a dual threat with their comfortable cabins and its tough and rigorous grit. While the ‘80s and ‘90s took Western Star to new heights, they were acquired yet again by a new owner, this time by the Freightliner Corporation, a division of what was then known as DaimlerChrysler, in 2000. The Western Star brand continued on under the Freightliner Corporation, alongside Freightliner branded trucks and others, into the 2000s.

Since 2000, Western Star has undergone great changes. In 2002 it moved to Portland, Oregon to work alongside Daimler’s other big-hauler company, Freightliner. In 2007, the Freightliner Corporation would be renamed to Daimler Trucks North America, LLC, in turn a wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler AG. In 2008, with Freightliner Trucks becoming a brand under this new division. Western Star Trucks was also now a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America, LLC, rather than of the Freightliner Corporation.
