Descended from a long line of workaholics.

The quality and value of a Western Star are now within reach, no matter what your application. That's because we built the all-new Western Star 4700 specifically to meet the demanding needs of vocational applications and today's tightening budgets. And we did it with input from you - the people who actually do the jobs. After all, no one knows what you need better than you do. The durable, reliable and rugged 4700. All new. All Western Star.

THREADED SPRING PINS

Greaseable threads prevent spring from moving side to side within the shackle. Competitors use flat pins: when the wheel is turned, the driver feels the leaf spring slide within the shackle. Our exclusive design threads the pins directly into the spring bushing providing much more stability, improved feel and overall handling.

4700 OUTBOARD CAB MOUNTS

Placed as wide as possible to maximize lateral stability. Provides a more comfortable ride on rough terrain and reduces body roll in turns.

THE LARGEST DOOR OPENINGS

... in the industry. Makes it easier and safer to get in and out of the truck.

FORGED STEEL DOOR HINGES

Internally mounted protection from the elements. Greater durability to prevent sagging -- a common problem with piano hinges.

DOUBLE DOOR SEALS

Both the door and the cab have a weather seal that covers its perimeter. This double seal helps maximize the efficiency of our HVAC systems and provides a quieter ride.

GRADE 8 FRAME FASTENERS

Can be retorqued in the field as needed, unlike huck bolts. Grade 8 fasteners allow for equipment to be installed on the frame without having to cut off huck bolts with a torch (and damaging frame integrity).

WIRING STAND OFFS

Our wiring and air bundles are supported off the frame rail. This allows debris to pass behind the bundle, eliminating the possibility of abrasion which can lead to electrical and air failures.

LASER-ETCHED CHASSIS WIRING

Laser etching and color coding ensures ability to troubleshoot wiring issues for the life of the truck.

CAB INSULATION AND SOUNDPROOFING

Barium insulation is placed between the double walled steel cab. This increases the thermal and acoustic insulation of the truck. Our floor pads are nearly an inch thick which further improves the quiet ride of a Western Star.

IN-CAB BLOWER MOTOR

Protected in the cab rather than being on the firewall and exposed to elements.

MARINE-GRADE ROCKER SWITCHES

Large waterproof switches are easy to operate with gloves on and are protected from water and salt which can create shorts.

CONVEX GAUGES

Prevents glare and improves readability of gauges for added safety and less driver fatigue.

SUSPENDED PEDALS

Suspended brake and clutch pedals prevents objects from becoming lodged behind pedals.

POWER DISTRIBUTION MODULES

The PDM and fuses are easily accessed by removing a panel on the passenger side dash. This allows you to sit comfortably in the cab while working on fuses rather than accessing them in a cumbersome location.

WIRING RACEWAY

We put our body builder interface connector and transmission control unit in the cab and out of the elements. You'll find a bolt-in pass-through plate in the cab floor to eliminate unnecessary drilling, and a dedicated floor channel with an easy-to-remove top that provides plenty of room for you to run your own wiring.

HINGED DASH

Provides quick access to wiring for service.

NODAL ENGINE MOUNTING

Our power units are mounted on clutch housing instead of fly wheel housing which supports the power unit closer to the output shaft of the transmission where the torque is greater. This results in less frame flex and a better ride.
