I'm pretty stuck on the DAF XF 105 (vanilla). Good, clear instruments, decent fuel economy, and I like the what must now be out of fashion older look.

All three main trucks I've had so far.
First, a Scania R500, 4x2, 12-speed auto 'box with retarder. Currently being used by one of my drivers.
Second, a MAN TGX XL 6x4, 560bhp, 16-speed auto 'box with retarder. A great steed, but it fell over while on a job in Bulgaria, completely wiping out the cargo and itself so it's been traded in for...
...a MAN TGX XXL 6x2/4 midlift, 680hp, 16-speed auto 'box with retarder.

Edit: wrote off the MAN, decided to trade it in for a Volvo FH16 Globetrotter, 750hp, 12+2 auto w/retarder, 6x2/4 midlift. That beast can easily handle any job I give it, and it certainly has some pickup when not towing.

Edit 2: was having some terrible luck with the Volvo, so after a brief fling with a modded Kenworth I'm back on team Scania.

I don't usually free-roam since the introduction of cargo market and I frequently shift trucks. I like the DAF XF, the perfect all-rounfer. I use the highest horsepower available, so scania R and TGX EL2, other faves of mine, often see a drop in mileage. I'm planning on reducing their horsepower close to 500 and 4x2, not sure if it would work.

I love the Scania R-Series, it's among the best all-rounders in the game.

Mercedes Benz Actros 2544 6x2 12 gears with retarder, it´s my favourite configuration. Cause some emotions with the heavies cargoes, but it´s funny !

I have a few nice trucks I like namely the DAF xf e6 and a new actros but for some unexplainable reason the one I drive most is the Iveco stralis E5 .

I like DAF XF106 - just for its appearance in original Orange XF paint. Very nice for driving is Magnum - enormous wind shield - perfect visibility + nice sounds (before Fmod)
