SelecTrucks is extending two of its 2008 promotions through March 31, 2009. The promotions are designed to offer customers a variety of purchasing and financing options to help maintain or grow their businesses despite the lagging economy.

The firm is offering a Fuel Card valued at $2,000 for the purchase of mid-roof 2003 and 2004 Freightliner Columbia trucks powered by the fuel-efficient Mercedes-Benz 4000 engine. Combined benefits of vehicle aerodynamics and the engines make the trucks ideal for reducing fuel costs.

Special financing offers customers two options. For the first option, SelecTrucks customers can take advantage of a limited-time interest rate of 4.75 percent, with no down payment required for those with a good credit rating.

A second option is a down-payment matching plan designed to reduce the customer's cash outlay and monthly payments. SelecTrucks will match 50 percent of a down payment up to $3,500. Both finance options also allow customers to defer their first loan payment for up to 90 days.

Qualifying trucks for both financing options include 2003 and 2004 Freightliner Columbia and Century Class S/T trucks with a range of specifications.
