DEPENDABILITY NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE.

The Western Star 4900 not only delivers classic looks, it delivers legendary
performance. Whether on the highway or in remote forests or mines, you can
count on the 4900 day in and day out. And with our ability to deliver purpose-built
trucks, a short talk with your dealer is the first step to getting the one you need.
Guess customer service never goes out of style either.

4900Sleepers & Interiors

Stretch your legs without ever stepping outside.

While most interiors out there feature sleepers that seem little more than afterthoughts, Western Star's all-new interior is planned with comfort, space and storage to spare. With four sleeper models, five roof heights and a high-quality walkthrough design, you can outfit your truck exactly how you want. Add to that a variety of upgraded material and color options and you have the kind of workplace you've always wanted. After all, it's your truck. It should fit you, not the other way around.
