Performance Truck - Victoria
The new Performance Truck - Victoria dealership is located on 5 acres at 4501 U.S. Highway 59 North, less than a mile from the intersection of U.S. Highways 59 and 87.
"This new location is ideally situated near Highway 59, a major north-south route from the international border with Mexico in the south, north to Houston," said Dayne Yeager, Performance Truck general manager at the dealer's corporate headquarters in Cleveland, Texas. Performance Truck also operates Kenworth dealerships in Austin/Buda, Baytown, Bryan, Beaumont, Cleveland, Houston, Jasper, Lufkin, and Rosenberg. "With 5 acres, our new Victoria location can offer truck drivers ample room to maneuver and park their truck and trailer units. The six service bays and large parts department provide support for vocational truck operators and the many local companies involved in the growing oil and gas industry. We'll also have plenty of room to expand as the business grows.
"This new location will help us showcase Kenworth's newest vocational model, the Kenworth T880, which we think will become a very popular choice among operators looking to replace older units with a more efficient model," Yeager said.
The facility offers nearly 4,000 square-feet of parts display and storage well-stocked with quality Kenworth proprietary and TRP all-makes parts. The location also offers parts delivery. Performance Truck - Victoria is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. The phone number is 361-827-7335.
