Western Star Truck Sales showcased its 4900EX model at this year’s Walcott Truckers Jamboree, held July 8-9 in Walcott, Iowa. This was Western Star’s third year attending the Jamboree.
Suited for owner-operators, the on-highway 4900EX tractor features an 82-inch Ultra-High Stratosphere Sleeper with a 560-hp U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-certified 2010 Detroit Diesel DD15 engine with BlueTec selective catalytic reduction emissions technology and an Eaton 13-speed transmission. The truck is well-appointed with premium leather, a driver’s lounge and a refrigerator.
“Walcott Truckers Jamboree is a great opportunity for us to connect with our core Western Star customer and share the benefits and customization options of our trucks that will keep them on the road and running longer – no matter what their needs,” says Mike Jackson, Western Star general manager.
The Western Star 4900EX also can be equipped with a Detroit Diesel DD13 or DD16 engine with BlueTec SCR emissions technology, as well at the Cummins ISX. Sleeper options from 34- to 82-inch also are available.
