The new Western Star 49X in the game!

The new Western Star 49X truck was announced a while ago, as you can see in this post from us. SCS Software released it and it’s available by updating your game on Steam. The truck comes as a free DLC for American Truck Simulator. We want to thank Western Star® and Daimler Trucks North America for working with SCS Software to bring us more content into ATS.
