Western Star has added an aerodynamic roof fairing option for its 5700XE 82-inch, ultra-high roof sleeper models.
The fairing improves aerodynamics for the company’s largest sleeper to increase fuel efficiency while maintaining the model’s comfort and space. The roof fairing is SmartWay Certified by the Environmental Protection Agency. Several 5700XE configurations with full aerodynamic packages are also SmartWay verified.
The 5700XE was designed with efficiency in mind, with standard features such as an aerodynamic hood, roof, chassis and cab fairings that reduce drag. The truck can also be spec’d with Detroit powertrain components such as Detroit engines, the Detroit DT12 automated manual transmission and Detroit axles.
“We’re proud of our participation in the SmartWay program and are dedicated to providing new solutions that benefit both our customers’ bottom lines and the environment,” said Samantha Parlier, vice president, marketing and product strategy for Western Star Trucks. “Western Star Trucks and DTNA are deeply committed to manufacturing products that improve freight efficiency and reduce fuel consumption.”
