At first glance, you might have thought this was very well-maintained, older used Western Star 4900 EX. But, no, it’s a brand new 2017 screamer with all the classic details; a popular choice for owner-operators and other fans of the classic look.
This 4900 EX’s good looks start with the 132 BBC snout which cradles a 505 hp Detroit Diesel DD15 1750 pound front big block. To simplify the driver’s job, the Eaton 18 speed Ultra –Shift transmission automatically handles all the terrains of the Northern American road grid. You can bet it’s a comfortable ride on the 262” wheelbase, 13K front axles, 40K rears, and premium leather seats. Since it holds 300 gallons of fuel in the tank, just set the cruise control and enjoy the ride. When you’re tired, slip into that spacious 82” stratosphere sleeper and enjoy sweet dreams of the open road.
Many thanks to Peter Horn from Eastgate Truck Centre, in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada for sharing this “Road King” of a Western Star.
