Depends on the make. You won't see me in a peterbilt anymore new or old.

Kenworth: K100 any day, so specifically old school.

Mack: Doesn't matter.

Freightliner: Doesn't matter.

Western Star: 4900 and 49x.

Volvo: Mid School.

International: I'll plead the 5th.

Needless to say I can't choose between the 2 choices.

New trucks for me all day long. Lonestar, Anthem, 49X, 5700XE, Cascadia, I would take any of those each day every day.
I don't like the classic conventionals, they all look the same.
I would consider classic cabovers, but we don't have those in the game. :(

@akima yep I couldn’t have said it better. I love the timeless design. There’s a reason the styling has stayed relatively the same for years and years.

Yeah @flight50 the new DD’s are about the only good sounding emissions engine.

I have voted for modern trucks, but I would love to see older trucks make it to game.

The one older truck that I would like would be the Freightliner Classic XL.

I'd also like to see older trucks in the game. After all, there are already vintage cars on the road.

I'd probably drive both classic and modern trucks, but would likely drive modern more. I've always wanted a cabover in my garage; not sure it'd become my main rig, but i'd like to have the option.

We think pretty much same. But, how about the trucks which produced between 2000-2010? Kenworth T2000, Peterbilt 387, Freightliner Century, Columbia, Coronado, Argosy, Volvo VN 770 and etc? I like those as well. They have slight technology in it which is exotic for me.

But older than that genre is just huge no . It reminds me steampunk age.

I prefer my Kenworth K100E over the more modern trucks. This truck suits me best and I love the way it looks.

My ranking:

1. Kenworth K100E (Mod by Overfloater)
2. Kenworth W900/Peterbilt 389
3. Western Star 49X
4. Kenworth T680/Peterbilt 579
5. Mack Anthem
6. Volvo VNL
7. International LoneStar

To be honest, I would be curious to see how many actual truck drivers voted for classic/older trucks and how many voted for modern ones and why. That would probably give some interesting results.
