So What About The Western Star 6900 Is So Special?
It comes with a variety of color choices, including Obsidian Black, Smokey Mountain Gray, Maple Leaf Red and Prairie Buckskin. The truck itself comes with a twin-steer specification. Or perhaps an extreme duty configuration.
The twin-steer comes with a wheelbase of over 486 inches, a TAS of 72 inches and a BBC of 141 inches. Whereas the extreme duty comes with a BA of 59 inches and a severe duty cab equipped with bonded windshield. They both have a choice of coming with an Eaton Fuller transmission or an Allison Automatic one.
The hood is of a fiberglass quality with LH and RH full-length butterfly openings. The front axle is a Meritor brand that can handle 20,000 pounds. This is to say the Brakes or made of Hendrickson brand. And/or Chalmers. The fuel tanks can handle 100 to 150 gallons. There lies a frame of a double-channel strength, while handling a DEF Tank of about 23 gallons or 87 liters.
Furthermore, there were a couple nice features about the truck including threaded spring pins, forged steel door hinges, double door seals. There also comes the standard power distribution modules, the suspended pedals, an in-cab blower motor, laser-etched chassis wiring and the honeycomb sleeper wall and the copper brass radiator. Also included, J-Brakets and ribbed straps. What’s more? Replaceable grille bars, nodal engine mounting and of course, who could forget about the outboard cab mounts? It’s all here.
