Every Western Star Truck Is A Work of Art

While most modern trucks roll out of the assembly line equipped with state-of-the-art gadgets and modular parts, Western Star long held the tradition of building trucks by hand. Every Western Star truck is built according to customer specifications to cater to specific jobs, whether it’s traversing the most dangerous highways or carrying the heaviest loads.

Unlike other truck manufacturers, artisans run the show at Western Star. Perfection might be an elusive concept, but it doesn’t stop the folks at Western Star from achieving it one step at a time—this is why a Western Star truck is considered a moving piece of art. Nothing else is sacrificed in the name of quality, only time and compromise. As proof, Western Star was the truck of choice to portray a pop culture icon: Optimus Prime. A Western Star 5700 Phantom Custom was used as the disguise for Optimus Prime in Transformers: Age of Extinction and Transformers: The Last Knight.

Western Star produces Class 8 commercial vehicles for both highway and off-road use. Every Western Star truck comes in several sleeper box sizes with chassis lengths of up to 486 inches depending on the model. The sleepers can be trimmed according to customer specifications and available in five interior packages.

Engines, transmissions, axles, suspensions and brakes can also be made in numerous configurations. Western Star also developed trucks with anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control which are often used in off-road applications.

Modern safety features are installed in the latest line of trucks to meet DOT regulations and remain competitive among other truck manufacturers. The company also caters to the Australian, New Zealand and South African markets with a line of right-handed truck models.

The Detroit Powertrain

Western Star trucks showcase efficiency, toughness, and power with its extensive range of engines from manufacturers Detroit and Cummings. The trademarked Detroit Powertrain offers 3,600 custom options for the right amount of power for every job. With three carefully engineered Detroit components: the engine, the transmission, and the axle, the Detroit Powertrain combines efficiency, performance, and reliability into a well-oiled machine.

Detroit DD15 Engine

The Detroit DD15 engine was designed to reduce fuel consumption by integrating it with the equally efficient DT12 transmission. The DD15 can cruise at the same road speeds that other engines can go but at lower RPM’s. Engineered with fuel economy and performance in mind, the DD15 can rev up with reduced friction and fuel consumption, minimizing wear and tear even when traversing the toughest road conditions.

Detroit DT12 Transmission

By linking the DT12 transmission to the DD15 engine, a Western Star truck can run at 12 tightly-spaced speeds. The DT12 also features the Intelligent Powertrain Management, a system which intuitively adapts to any terrain and creates optimal fuel economy. Intelligent Powertrain Management pinpoints the truck’s location using terrain maps, pre-selects gears, adjusts cruise control, eCoast and engine breaks to maximize efficiency on the road conditions ahead.

Detroit 6×2 or 6×4 Axles

Bringing together the trifecta of engine efficiency are the Detroit 6×2 or 6×4 Axles. The Detroit axles provide optimum efficiency and performance when paired with the DD15 engine and DT12 transmission by delivering power to the pavement with minimum loss.

This state-of-the-art system is available in the 5700XE Western Star model. If you are interested in what a used 5700XE can offer, our specialists at International Machinery can help you acquire one at the most competitive price.
