The NEXT Western Star® is finally here! As was revealed a few weeks ago, we have worked very closely with Western Star® and Daimler Trucks North America to bring to American Truck Simulator this exclusive new truck. The brand-new (and we do mean brand-new) Western Star® 49X is now available for purchase from your local in-game dealership with a variety of customization options.
The most tested, durable, and toughest Western Star® truck to-date, the 49X is built to thrive in rugged environments and to take on anything.
The Western Star® 49X in our game is initially launching with a select choice of configurations, including 2 Set-Forward chassis variants, 12 engine* and 7 transmissions options (including the Detroit™ DD13/15/16 and DT12 transmissions), in day cab form with a sizable variety of customization options. Larger sleeper variants will be added in time.
Helping to bring the newest Western Star® to the virtual roads of American Truck Simulator are 3 senior designers; each one of them dedicated to recreating a different part of the vehicle. A designer for the interior model, one for the exterior, and another for the variety of paint jobs that can be applied. Be sure to check out the unique Wings of Awesomeness paint job for this truck, which is offered as a factory option.
We would like to once again express our utmost gratitude towards Western Star® and Daimler Trucks NA for this unprecedented opportunity to synchronize the truck's launch. We are extremely proud to have earned their trust and to be a part of this enormous milestone. Their generosity and close collaboration have been absolutely vital to this awesome and exclusive project. We hope that having firmly-established ourselves in the trucking industry, this project serves as a sign of things to come.
As a special bonus to celebrate the truck's launch, you can also look forward to delivering new 49X trucks to dealerships across the map from the Western Star® Manufacturing Plant in Portland, Oregon (Oregon DLC required).
The Western Star® 49X arrives as a free DLC add-on for every owner of American Truck Simulator. Find this latest update on your Steam Client (which may require a restart for some users) to receive this new addition to your library.
