The Western Star 49X

In the midst of a global pandemic did you forget that we were waiting on a new Western Star model? I bet you did! Behold. The Western Star 49X.

My first impressions of the truck are favorable. I haven’t liked many of the new models that have rolled off the assembly lines in recent years but this one doesn’t immediately leave me shaking my head. While it does looked like a beefed up 4700 wearing a Freightliner cab it still is a handsome rig. Again, you have to look at this truck through the lens of modern styling. It will be interesting to see how these look in the real world.

Props to Western Star for actually having real trucks in the online sales materials and not crappy computer renderings.

So what’s the next truck to keep tabs on? The International HX has some new changes just around the corner…
