The toughest trucks make tough look easy.
470 horsepower? Yep. 150,000 towing capacity? No problem. Rugged components and good looks? You bet. This 4900SB checks all the boxes with its smooth-shifting Eaton 13-speed gear box and Meritor DualTrac rear axles, all on a 240-inch wheelbase. You’ll wear out before the truck will, which is why it also has a roomy, yet lightweight 68-inch Stratosphere sleeper.
