Another great release and update information in American Truck Simulator as the power hood option is now available for the Western Star 49X.
More news has come out over the radio frequencies as American Truck Simulator announces the power hood option is now available for the Western Star 49X. What is a power hood you ask if you are not familiar with trucking.
The Power Hood is made from the same impact-resistant, durable, lightweight molded resin material as the sloped 49X hood and is designed for applications such as heavy haul, oil field service, and construction, which require higher horsepower ratings.
We are happy to officially announce that the Power Hood option is now available for the Western Star® 49X in American Truck Simulator. This addition will take your truck’s appearance to the next level, offering a blend of old-school charm and undeniable might, bringing a touch of nostalgia and dominance to your virtual driving experience.
The Power Hood option breathes new life into the Western Star® 49X. With its imposing front grille, muscular lines, and distinctive contours, this enhancement commands attention on the virtual highways, evoking strength and merging classic charm with modern power. And in combination with a new Texas bumper, and the recently added cabin suspension simulation, the trucking experience feels fresh and mighty.
So, set off for the nearest service center and embrace this new customization option to transform your Western Star® 49X into a mighty symbol of the power that trucking is undeniably capable of. The in-game territories await your arrival. Safe travels, and we’ll see you on the road!
