Test Drive: Caterpillar’s New CT681

The set-forward steer axle and plain front end mark the latest Cat Truck. The headlamps are halogen sealed beams and the bumper is flat to minimize overall length.

Class 8 Update: Economics Forge Change

Western Star:The flagship from Western Star, a Daimler Trucks brand, is the 4900 with 132-inch cab and hood and long sleeper that’s built for the highway but looks good in town. It and the shorter 4800 are also equipped for vocational work with forward and setback steer axles or twin-steer configurations. Just announced is a 4800SB 8x8 whose setback, driving steer axle is paired with Meritor tri-drive rear axles.

By Tom Berg
