WESTERN STAR MODEL 47X
Break new ground with the 47X.
Western Star X-Series trucks are the best trucks anyone has ever built. Like the 49X before it, the 47X is part of a family that was built from the ground up to bring toughness into the modern age with an impressive collection of engineering, technology and more than half a century of experience building trucks that take on any challenge, anywhere.
The 47X extends the reach of the X-Series into even more vocational applications, with a number of new features including a shorter hood and a shorter 111" BBC. No matter what job you need to do, there’s now another purpose-built tool to do it. Break new ground with the 47X.
