Our X-Series trucks aren’t just the best trucks we’ve ever built, they’re 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. This shorter configuration is ideal for applications that require optimized equipment packaging to meet local overall vehicle length requirements and applications that need to adhere to bridge laws, such as concrete mixers or dump trucks. So, no matter what job you need to do, there’s now another purpose-built tool to do it. Break new ground with the 47X.Ask an expert View Inventory
Engineered for long life and quick upfit.
Presenting the tough, lightweight vocational truck chassis. The heavy-duty vocational frame underneath the 47X is engineered to stand up to the demands dump trucks, concrete mixers and crane trucks experience on infrastructure and construction projects, while being lighter weight, more durable, easier to service and extremely Truck Equipment Manufacturer (TEM) friendly.
Setting the vocational standard for safety and technology.
Technology gets tough in the X-Series, the first Western Star trucks to feature the most advanced suite of active safety systems ever offered to the vocational market — Detroit Assurance®. Detroit Assurance not only helps keep people safe, it helps you reduce the repair and operational costs of having a truck out of service by avoiding collisions — which can mean game-changing productivity to you.
Truck interiors that make every truck feel like a reward truck.
From the dash to the sleeper cab, these trucks make you feel right at home. When your vocational trucks work some of the toughest jobs around, you can’t underestimate the importance of comfort. The interior of the 47X has the space, the ergonomics and the quality finish that make the long days for operators in construction, logging, quarry and other demanding environments a lot more comfortable.
