Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) has just unveiled the brand-new Western Star 47X in the US

After launching the 49X a year ago, Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) has just unveiled the brand-new Western Star 47X in the US, the second truck in Western Star’s entirely new X-Series platform.

Building on a long legacy of manufacturing durable, hard-working trucks, the new platform combines the tough American heritage that Australian and New Zealand customers have come to expect with the latest in engineering advancements, Penske says.

"It’s very exciting to see the 47X unveiled in the US following on from the launch of the 49X last year," says Craig Lee, general manager, on-highway, Penske Australia. "We’re thrilled to be launching the new Western Star range in late 2022 in Australia and shortly after that in New Zealand.

"Our local teams here in Australia and New Zealand have worked closely with the Western Star team in the US on the development of the new trucks to tailor them for our local markets in both Australia and New Zealand and will continue to do so.

"Boasting lighter yet tougher cabin frames and steel-reinforced cabins, and with features including wrap-around dashboards, our customers will surely be impressed when they see the trucks in person and step foot into the cabin.

"We will continue to work with our dealer network to ensure the highest level of support is delivered to our existing and our new customers."
