There’s no substitute for climbing into the cab of a brand new truck, taking the driver seat, sliding your hand across the wheel and taking it for a drive. Hopefully, this video is the next best thing. At a pre-launch event, the Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) team gave me the chance to get behind the wheel of the newly launched Western Star 57X, the brand’s on-highway offering. Powered by a Detroit pedigree, the new truck was designed from the ground up, and it shows. New cab, new driver displays, new safety system offerings, new everything.
Check out the video above for a product walk around, technology driven test drive and a demonstration of a few of the new safety features. And then check out the host of Western Star 57X coverage below.
