Texas - Car Factories

While trucking and exploring the vast state of Texas in the upcoming DLC for American Truck Simulator, you might end up picking up a job or two from a couple of large car manufacturing plants. Today we will take a closer look at these two car factories and their impact on the local economy and industry.

One of the car factories is located in Arlington, a part of the Dallas-Fort Worth region, and it has been producing vehicles for over 60 years. Built in 1954, the size of the facility is currently over 4 million square feet (about 371 thousand square meters) and we have done our best to transition this size as close to reality as possible in the game. It’s safe to say that an area producing over 1,300 vehicles per day certainly doesn’t deserve anything less. Especially since its production seems to have no intention of slowing down any time soon, considering over a billion dollars were invested into the plant since 2015.

The other factory can be found south of San Antonio and in real life, it belongs to one of the top car manufacturers in the world. It is said that a new vehicle rolls off the line every 60 seconds, which paints a clear picture of the high level of production. In addition to the 2.2 million square feet (about 204 thousand square meters) facility, there is also a railway in the nearby area, on which the produced vehicles are transported all over the country by trains.

As you can see, Texas DLC will feature some interesting areas with rich facts and backstories behind them. If you cannot wait to visit these famous and important factories in-game, make sure to add the expansion to your Steam Wishlist to show us how excited you truly are. Also, to never miss out on anything important, you can follow our social media profiles (TwitterInstagramFacebookTikTok), subscribe to our newsletter, or check out our microsite dedicated to this project.
