I’d really like to see the 2022 upgrade for the Cascadia at some point. Pretty minor detail but I’d love to see it. I’m eager to see what would be first truck with purely digital dashboard would get into either of the games. There are pretty good number of candidates out there!

I hope we get to see the three highly speculated trucks this year in the game (VNL, LT, 5700E). Personally, I ain’t a great fan of vocational trucks so I’d always appreciate any new OTR truck additions.

The 2022 Cascadia from a 2019 might require a new license or at least a new negotiation. I don't if it happens. We have a 2019 and I'm sure that's where it will stay. Your list of 3 trucks though, yeahhhhhh something has to come off that list sooner than later. 2 off that list this year would be awesome. All three and its a wrap, lol. If we got all 3 of those this year, that leave 2022 and 2023 wide open for options. Pinnacle, W990, T880, 122SD, 4900 and last on my list are the new T680 and new 579. Add all these plus the 3 highly speculated plus what we already have and ATS will be knocking on the door of 20 trucks. To go from 2016 with only 4 and get 15 from 2018 to 2023-2025, that is beast mode.

I wouldn't rule out the International HX either. With the new gen HX sharing the same sleeper and interior design as the Lonestar & LT I think the chances of it coming to ATS sooner rather then later have increased alot. People will say but it's more vocational orientated then OTR but look at the 49X it was design and made for the same purpose but we have it in game.

Wouldn't be suprised if the HX came as the next International truck instead of the LT, I like the look of the LT but prefer the look of the HX more. And if SCS keeps continuing on the run that they have as of late releasing the newest models of manufacturers the chances of the HX being the next International does look promising.

But all in all the new VNL should be the next truck for ATS that I do agree with. After that then who cares really imo all major models have been accounted for pretty much so whatever they bring out after the new VNL is just bonuses really.

The HX is very possible. I'd like to see it. That increases the chances for the 122SD, T880 and the VNX. But we also have to remember that the 49x is in the game because Western Star approached SCS, not SCS approached WS to get the 49x. We'd have the T800 at the least if SCS went after vocational as it has been out for quite some time. SCS is going after OTR trucks. What manufacturers think is something different. So I'd still have to put the LT before the HX. I haven't seen a single HX on the road yet but LT's are everywhere. They are just as common as the VNL, T680 and 579.

I understand that Flight but I also look at the scenario that even though WS approached SCS they could of also said well we want our 4900 or 5700 as the first model in the game. Both models are popular and respected in NA trucking to a certain degree so for them to want the 49X that is more vocational and HH orientated then OTR is providing the chance that any thing is possible now hence why I put the HX in the same chance as any other model. I look at it they might wanted to increase the options of what functionality a truck might have wether it's vocational, HH, specialised or OTR.

I’m theorizing that the first truck with the all digital dashboard that comes to ATS is the New 579. With Texas being the home state of Peterbilt, I don’t think there would be a better time for Peterbilt to have its new truck on the DLC cover. I believe that SCS knows this and that would be the perfect marketing ploy.

I think the 49x was timing. Most of us realize that SCS was working a WS before the 49x was even mentioned to SCS. I believe it was early 2019 when Pavel said all brands are accounted for. So no doubt that another WS outside the 49x was started or at least had a license to start. It would be great to see the 4900 and the 5700XE. I'm all 5700 but we do need another classic. Both would be welcomed. We missed out on the International 9900i and the Freightliner XL more than likely. Those are 2 classics that would fit well with the W900 and the 389.

When the 49x released, I remember seeing an article about the HX. I was like........heyyyy that's a very nice truck. I wonder how many other manufacturer's will follow what WS did for SCS. Well, Renault just did it. They even launched it thru ETS2 before anything else. I like the way things are going for licensed content in both games. This is huge for SCS and the surface is only being scratched right now. There is lots more potential to come the further SCS gets with these games.

The HX would ease my pain of knowing that we're never getting the 9900i, so I'd definitely like to see it. LT should probably happen first, though, it's the most common International truck by far.

But yeah, I've always figured that the most likely near-future truck would be a WS for that reason - they had something lined up before the 49X if they could promise all seven brands at that point. Doubt they'd just drop it when they're dying for options.

Pay no attention to the open window. I drive like in the game in IRL when it is raining. (Joke) :lol:

I love 1.40 and don't want to go back to 1.39 at all. Thank you SCS :D

I've seen fog this thick only once so far and I loved driving through it, felt like I was on my way to Silent Hill.
