Peterbilt 2020 Dealer Awards

Peterbilt Motors Company has named Jackson Group Peterbilt as its 2020 North American Dealer of the Year. The award was announced this week at the company's annual dealer meeting, held virtually for the first time.

Peterbilt's Dealer of the Year is awarded to the dealer group that best represents Peterbilt’s commitment to excellence and the never-ending pursuit of driving customer uptime. This is Jackson Peterbilt Group's third Dealer of the Year honor. It also was recognized as the OEM's top dealer in 2008 and 2013.

“Jackson Group Peterbilt has spent the last 27 years investing and growing their dealer footprint to six states and 19 locations, with plans for additional growth in 2021.
