Red Oval



Pre-owned trucks have to earn their Red Oval certification by meeting exacting criteria and passing a comprehensive inspection process. Every Red Oval certified truck undergoes a 150-point inspection by factory-trained service technicians. The inspections are reviewed by Peterbilt’s Red Oval team before receiving certification.

All Red Oval certified trucks are reconditioned and serviced to ensure they leave the lot running at peak performance. This includes full DPF cleaning and an oil and filter change. Additionally, every Red Oval truck is D.O.T. certified.
