American Truck Simulator is no stranger to the Western Star® brand. With 2 of their newest trucks, the 49X and 57X, already available in-game, today we are excited to announce the arrival of a legend. Introducing the Western Star® 5700XE, which is now available at your Western Star® Trucks dealership in American Truck Simulator!
Combining tough performance, modern technology and the traditional look of a classic truck, Western Star® didn’t overlook a single detail when creating this truck; with advanced engineering to improve efficiency and aerodynamics. XE – which stands for extreme efficiency – summarizes exactly what this truck is all about.
Ever since we saw this truck at the Mid-America Trucking show in 2016, we knew we had to have it in the game! We are very thankful to the team at Western Star® in helping us bring this legend to the virtual roads of ATS, especially when it meant digging through some archives to find the information we needed for its development.
The Western Star® 5700XE arrives with a select choice of configurations and customizations. This includes a day cab, the 54″ High Roof Stratosphere and the 82″ Ultra High Roof Stratosphere. Chassis available are short, medium and long versions in 6×2 and 6×4. Engines included are exclusively Detroit Diesel, which offers the options of DD13, DD15 and DD16 up to 600HP. Transmission options include the Detroit DT12 automated manual as well as Eatons.
There are lots of customizations available for this truck too, including plenty of Chrome parts, aero fairings, interior trim options and so much more! You may even find a big screen-inspired paint job included. Be sure to check them all out. We look forward to seeing how you customize your 5700XE for the road.
