Western Star Trucks Discussion Thread

#1 Post by Trucker_Tommy » 15 Apr 2020 14:42

Well as the last brand to make an appearance on this forum I thought I’d start. Being European I don’t know much of American trucks but from the lineup of WS trucks I really like and hope for the 5700XE. I’m sure they’re people on here who know more than I though
On September 30, 2020, SCS released the Western Star 49X!

I think the 5700XE is a good contender to be the first Western Star truck because it is its flagship truck. But I also get a bit confused with the choice of the International Lonestar instead of the International LT. So I gamble a 50/50 chance of being the 5700XE or 4900 being the first WS in ATS.
I don't give up making mods. But I don't have enough time to do them now.

Actually the 4900 is the flagship truck as it has been in production for 25 to 30 years.

I didn't know that. I thought it was the 5700 because it is more aerodynamic.

Aerodynamics have nothing to do with being the flagship model. Believe it goes by sales and production history.

Thanks :)

I like the 4700. Is it a daycab workhorse only?

Never mind. Checked their website :oops:

Hey, stop making truck brand threads! I don't read them so fast! :lol:
Jokes aside, I think that Western Star can already be worked on as the Oscar's trip to the DTNA was described as very successful. But it definitely will be the last of 7 brands to make it into ATS, and I hope for 4900 to be chosen. 5700XE just looks too Transformer-ish.
