Daimler Trucks North America Launches New OEM Detroit Extended Warranty Product

July 2021

PORTLAND, OR…  Detroit DD13, DD15 and DD16 engines that have expired warranties are now eligible for the new Detroit OE Advantage extended warranty coverage from Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA).

 Detroit OE Advantage provides comprehensive coverage, similar to other Detroit extended warranties, with multiple plan options and terms of one year/125,000 miles or two years/250,000 miles. This product is different from existing aftermarket products because it is an easy to understand OEM coverage that offers flexibility on when it can be added without caps, deductibles, hidden fees, surcharges or aggregate limits. Detroit OE Advantage has a coverage maximum time distance of 7 years/750,000 miles.

 "We want to provide our customers with the best support for their Detroit engines at every stage of their ownership experience," said Kevin Holland, sales and marketing manager for DTNA. "Detroit OE Advantage provides the highest level of OEM protection for customers with expired Detroit engine warranties, giving them confidence that their engines are fully backed by Detroit."

 DTNA Product Manager Shawn Hinson added, "This product is truly unique, in that, it is a time-flexible, hassle free OEM coverage supported by the Freightliner and Western Star dealers and the Detroit service network."  

 Detroit OE Advantage is one of several warranty products offered by DTNA, including Extended Engine coverage EW1-4, Extended Next, and Truck Chassis coverage. Detroit has more than 700 authorized service locations in North America staffed by factory-trained technicians and experts.
