History of Grande Truck Center | San Antonio, TX 

Grande Truck Center has proudly served the San Antonio area for more than 50 years, providing quality trucks, fair prices, and a pleasant buying process for all our customers.

The Grande Truck Center story began in 1967 with the founding of Red McCombs Ford Truck Sales at the dealership's current location off Interstate 10. In 1969, new principal dealer R.S. Kane changed the name to Grand Ford Truck Sales, and eventually, the operation became known as Grande Truck Center.

To keep up with business growth, we doubled the size of our service and parts departments in 1978 and expanded office space as well. We opened a satellite light truck location in 1983, then merged that with our main office as part of another expansion in 1986.
For many years, Grande Truck Center mainly sold Ford heavy trucks. In 1997, Ford sold its heavy-truck division to Daimler Trucks North America, and for the next decade, Grande Truck Center sold these vehicles under the Sterling brand. During this decade, we also added Western Star trucks to our sales lineup.

In 2008, Daimler discontinued the Sterling line. To strengthen our truck offerings after this tough blow, Grande Truck Center took on full ownership of a sister dealership at Interstate 35 and Weidner Road that sold Mack and Volvo heavy trucks. As part of this deal, Mack and Volvo sales moved to the I-10 location while Mack and Volvo service and parts remained at the I-35/Weidner Road location.

Throughout all of these changes, we've consistently produced nationally recognized sales numbers and customer service, racking up five straight Ford President's Award victories, 10 straight Top 5 Ford Medium Duty Dealer finishes, and numerous other honors.

Today, we're still at the 1-10 location where we started out, selling a wide variety of Mack, Volvo, Western Star, and Autocar work trucks. We also sell the full lineup of Ford vehicles, all the way from small crossovers to F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks.

Here at Grande Truck Center, we're proud of our five-decade track record, and we look forward to providing our customers with excellent vehicles and service for many more years to come. Come visit us at   4562 I-10, San Antonio, TX 78219.
