These are closer to "Special Edition" models I often saw some american dealerships sells.

It's common to put previous year model as the current year depending on when it was manufactured or sold(GM is a big fan of that tactic when they do a model change). In volvo case, it was said that they would fill current orders, but they did remove nearly all the info on the previous gen VNL when the new model became available for order on their website (which signal that they officially stopped selling it).

On paper it's a 2018 model. In reality, there is no difference between the 2017 VNL and that one

"they may have made an error with the 49x"

tells us so much, sometimes a picture doesnt tell anything, what did they do wrong, who did what wrong ?

It’s just the title and the specifications that are wrong. The description has the correct nomenclature.

Mannn, I can now say that I will be able to return to the 49x with the 1.40 update once it goes live. I wasn't going to use it again until 8x4 at the least came. I didn't expect anything to be done so soon though. This is awesome. I wanted that truck in 8x4 more than anything when it released. I'll probably run a 8x6 actually. My W900 definitely going to 8x4 for my main profile. I don't run owned trailers on this profile. Now if we can only get a Special Transport Part 2.........that would seriously justify these 8x4/8x6. And yes I said Special Transport 2. We got our money's worth with the first one. SCS can keep adding to it for free. If you want more cargo.....pay for it. I'd make another pack and call it Heavy Weight Loads or Massive Oversized Loads or something. All loads for it should be 80+ tons. Lets put those triaxles to work.

I won't hype it too much but Wyoming and Texas are coming. We do have very heavy load here in NA as well. There are examples of these loads in the link in my signature for Special Transport. Maybe in the future but one thing for sure is that SCS, does not have to hold back anymore for very very heavy loads. We have all the trailer components and variants we need. They are also ownable thanks to 1.39. The missing piece to massive loads is here. Bring on the big loads.

Snowrunner can't be the only game pushing the 49x to its limits. We got upgraded tires and now it should be on and popping. We are pretty much into the Great Plains states now and lots of open flat lands to haul almost anything we want.

special stream tomorrow for the 49X (most likely the rest of the truck options will now be part of the game); let's see

^That's the only possible scenario. Otherwise we probably don't get a stream. Honestly, I'm not sure why a stream is required. A blog with the new additions is perfectly fine.

We've only seen the day cab, midroof, and the huge 72inch sleeper from the 49x and there might be more for the interior
