Introducing a New Star for the New Year: Western Star 47X

Just in time for the new year, Western Star has launched a brand new addition to its X-Series – the 47X. This lighter model workhorse joins the 49X, extending X-Series vocational capabilities with purpose-built trucks for new applications such as concrete mixers, dump trucks, snowplows and crane trucks. Order now, and you’ll be able to put your new star performer into play early in 2022.

Exceeding Expectations . . . Again

The all-new 47X is everything you’d expect from a truck that carries Western Star’s legendary name. Tough. Durable. Powerful. And a cab that ensures drivers get the full royal treatment in ease of working, comfort and stylish detailing. And, oh yes, safety.

But there’s more. After all, we’re talking Western Star. So the 47X offers a galaxy of features designed to drive greater productivity, uptime and profitability:

  • Lighter weight from nose to tail for fuel savings and increased payloads without sacrificing strength and durability.
  • A shorter version (110.8” BBC instead of the standard 111.6” length) to meet bridge laws and local overall vehicle length restrictions.
  • Shorter hood and high wheel cuts for greater maneuverability in urban or other tight conditions.
  • Standard DD13 Gen 5 engine that supports driving regen without risk of after treatment cool-down. Need a lighter power plant? Choose the optional Cummins L9 or X12 instead.

You get the idea. It’s a Star in every way. And here’s what just might be the best part – the 47X is not only highly customizable, it is designed for fast upfit. From chassis configuration to electrical and technology options, “you can take things that were once considered to be complex, expensive or impossible to do and accomplish them more easily and efficiently,” says David Carson, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Daimler Truck North America.
