INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Western Star has come out with an all-wheel drive version of its 4700 set-back axle truck.
The Western Star 4700SB AWD is suited for construction and utility applications requiring a lightweight truck with rugged, off-road traction, the company announced at the Work Truck Show.
The latest 4700 features a 110-inch BBC, which the company claims is the shortest in its class, and a 42-degree wheel cut for maneuverability on the job. It is also engineered with lightweight components, including a 16,000-lb front axle and 40,000-lb rears.
“We’re meeting our customers’ demands for a rugged, yet lightweight truck suited for the most challenging of job sites,” said Peter Schimunek, marketing segment manager, Western Star. “Our 4700SB AWD combines the best in performance, customization and durability in an affordable package. Complemented by Western Star’s roomy, comfortable interior, this truck is the ultimate workhorse.”
The truck is powered by a Cummins ISL engine with up to 380 hp and 1,300 lb.-ft. of torque, and comes with an Allison 3000 Series transmission. It can be ordered with a front or rear power take-off.
