Western Star has introduced its new 4700 set-back all-wheel drive truck. Now available to order, the 4700SB AWD is made for construction and utility applications requiring a lightweight truck with off-road traction abilities.
Maintaining key attributes of the basic 4700 model, the new AWD truck features a 110-in. BBC — said to be shortest in its class — and a 42-degree wheel cut to enhance maneuverability on tight job sites.
The truck is engineered with premium, lightweight components suited for the rigors of vocational applications, the company says, including 16,000-lb front axles and 40,000-lb rears. It can also be spec’d with a half-inch, 3.2-million RBM single-channel frame rail that reduces weight while providing long-term durability.
The 4700SB AWD also features Western Star’s body-builder-friendly design for ease of upfit and reduced body installation time.
Powered by a Cummins ISL engine, the 4700SB AWD features up to 380 hp and 1300 lb ft of torque and is equipped with an Allison 3000-series transmission. It can be spec’d with front or rear power take-off.
