Keep on Truckin’

Keep on Truckin

With about 1.8 million drivers, truck driving is a huge industry in the United States. Even with such a pool of drivers, however, the industry needs about 30,000 more to be able to operate at its full potential. This shortage slows every aspect of the US economy simply because so many things are transported by truck. From food to electronics to construction materials, almost everything around us came off the back of a truck. A major factor in this shortage is the number of truck drivers who would like to work, but who can’t afford to buy or rent their own trucks thanks to high prices or bad credit. American Truck Group, LLC is working to solve that problem and get those drivers back to work. With no credit checks and low down payments, ATG makes sure that drivers and America can keep on truckin’!

Inventory Spotlight: 2011 Volvo 670

a white 2011 Volvo 670

At American Truck Showrooms in Atlanta, we’ve received a set of 2011 Volvo 670s. Each of these trucks is in exceptional condition, inside and out. All are painted a gleaming white and, aside from two with 435 hp 12.7L Volvo engines, have 430/470 hp 14L Volvo engines. With recessed door handles, streamlined hoods and windshields, and an air deflector under the bumper, the 670 doesn’t sacrifice style for aerodynamics. Add this to the efficiency of the Volvo engine, and you’re going to see some considerable fuel savings. On the inside, the 2,050 square inch windshield gives the driver a commanding view of the road outside, while a digital readout keeps track of what’s going on inside the truck. The steel cab, three-point safety harness, airbags, and collapsing steering column are designed to make sure the most important part of the truck survives: the driver. With a 61-inch sleeper containing all the amenities you’d expect from a Volvo. The 670 is Volvo’s best-selling truck of all time, and it’s not difficult to see why. We have several on our Atlanta lot, but we’d be surprised if they lasted long. Drop by our Atlanta location, contact us online, or give us a […]
