Western Star Truck Sales, Inc. recently introduced its new 4700 set-back (SB) all-wheel drive (AWD) truck. The Western Star 4700SB AWD is ideal for vocational, construction and utility applications requiring a lightweight truck with rugged, off-road traction.
Maintaining key attributes from Western Star’s 4700 model, the new all-wheel drive truck features a 110-inch BBC – the shortest in its class – and a 42-degree wheel cut to provide excellent maneuverability on tight job sites. The 4700SB AWD is also engineered with premium, lightweight components suited for the rigours of vocational applications, including 16,000-pound front axles and 40,000-pound rears. It can be spec’d with a half-inch, 3.2 million RBM single channel frame rail option, to further reduce truck weight while providing long-term durability in corrosive work environments, and features Western Star’s body builder friendly design for ease of upfit and reduced body installation time.
“Our 4700SB AWD combines the best in performance, customization and durability in an affordable package,” said Peter Schimunek, Western Star. “Complemented by Western Star’s roomy, comfortable interior, this truck is the ultimate workhorse.”
Powered by a Cummins ISL engine, the 4700SB AWD features up to 380 hp and 1,300 lb-ft of torque, and is equipped with an Allison 3000-series transmission. It can also be spec’d with front power take-off or rear power take-off , suitable for a wide range of auxiliary applications.
