Western Star launches new vocational range with extra "badass"

Christopher Goodfellow - 10 March 2011

Western Star has launched a new range of vocational trucks, the Class 8 4700, aimed at six core segments: dump, mixer, crane, roll-off, snow plow and sewer vac.

Mike Jackson, General Manager at Western Star, said: "The Western Star 4700 broadens our product line-up to meet the growing needs of value-minded vocational customers who still demand the attributes found in a traditional Western Star truck.

"Hand-built with unmatched attention to detail, the 4700 features the same durability, ruggedness and reliability our customers expect from Western Star."

Three engine choices are available for the new models, a Detroit Diesel DD13, or Cummins ISC or ISL engines. All engines use Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to meet the latest emissions regulations and require Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF).
