In 1997, it was acquired by Freightliner, a division of Daimler AG, and later became a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America. With a focus on Class 6-8 trucks, the company carved a niche for itself in vocational applications such as construction, delivery, and waste collection. Noteworthy achievements include the introduction of fuel-efficient designs and the launch of customizable trucks tailored for specific industry needs. However, in the face of a declining market and economic difficulties, Daimler ceased the production of Sterling Trucks in 2009.
