American Truck Simulator 5th Anniversary: Chassis Update

Happy 5th Birthday American Truck Simulator! It's incredible how time has flown since we released this newer trucking title in February 2016. Since that time we are proud to have brought you 9 U.S States (California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Idaho, Colorado) with 2 more in development, 7 major truck brands, and 13 DLC's such as Cabin Accessories and Special Transport

To celebrate this special occasion, we wanted to bring a heavily-requested feature to our community to celebrate its progress and journey so far! This suggestion has always frequently appeared in our suggestions pile and today, we are happy to announce that American Truck Simulator will receive new chassis options for all current trucks in the upcoming 1.40 update.

Our vehicle team has worked hard to bring you a range of long and short chassis types, allowing you to customize your truck for the job at hand. This update will feature 4x2, 8x4, and 8x6 chassis types which are used for a range of different trailers. 

4x2s, also known as single-axle trucks, are frequently used for local distribution deliveries by supermarkets and by logistic companies for hauling doubles. 

8x4 and 8x6 chassis are the big guns of the heavy-haul industry and can handle just about any load you decide to take on. 

Interested to know the details of what chassis types each truck will be receiving? Here's a full list of all the new extended chassis options coming to our range of trucks in American Truck Simulator:

  • Freightliner Cascadia: Day cab 4x2
  • Mack Anthem: Day cab 4x2
  • International LoneStar: Day cab & Sleepers 8x4
  • Peterbilt 389: Day cab & Sleepers 8x4 & 8x6
  • Volvo VNL: Day cab 4x2, Day cab & Sleepers 8x4
  • Peterbilt 579: Day cab 4x2
  • Kenworth W900: Day cab & Sleepers 8x4 & 8x6
  • Kenworth T680: Day cab 4x2
  • Western Star 49X: Day cab 8x4 & 8x6

All of these new options bring more variety to you, the driver! So we hope you enjoy this surprise addition to 1.40. We want to also take a moment to thank every single member of our community for your on-going support for American Truck Simulator! We look forward to bringing you even more content and updates in the near future.

But that isn't all! Tonight we will be hosting a special 5th Anniversary Live-Stream where we will be giving you a first look at these new chassis options and celebrating with you, the community, with giveaways and more! You can join us live from 6pm CET on either Steam, Twitch, or YouTube! We hope to see you there.
