Overview

A truck that combines value, versatility and productivity, all to get the job done

Tough and versatile, the 4700 is more than just a great value. It's a great truck. Its excellent efficiency and maneuverability make it perfect for local and regional hauls as a tractor, while its rugged dependability gives you the performance you can count on for almost any vocational application. In fact, the 4700 is purpose-built to deliver Western Star quality to everyone.

4700

Features

CLEAN BACK OF THE CAB

Makes it easy to add the body you want with no oddly placed stacks or brackets to get in the way and flexible exhaust options help to save as much as a foot of chassis length.

THIRD POWER DISTRIBUTION MODULE

Incorporates a circuit board design for higher power capacity, allowing for more switches and controls. Conveniently located in place of the glovebox, providing more space between the seats.

MULTIPLE PTO OPTIONS

Front or rear engine PTO available with optional rear-mounted PTO on the Detroit™ DT12® for stationary applications. SAE PTO options for Eaton and Allison transmissions are also available as provision only.

UPDATED INSTRUMENT CLUSTER

Gauges that provide more information to the driver in intuitive format. A multi-function LCD readout that delivers the data and alerts your driver wants to see most.

SINGLE-CHANNEL FRAME RAILS

Lightweight solution rated at 3.2M RBM. Factory custom-drilled for your application for added strength and faster upfit.  Single-channel construction resists corrosion.

BODY-BUILDER FRIENDLY POWER & GROUND ACCESS

Adds interface points throughout the vehicle for ground interfacing. Adds heavy power interface to the front wall. Can be pre-wired between the seats. Offers ease of power access.

DOOR PANELS

Durable surfaces that are easy to clean. Deep storage pockets for easy access. Strong handholds to help you get in and out safely.

CUSTOMER INTERFACE CONNECTION (CIC)

Standardized, connector-based interface. Reduces upfit time. Allows for ease of finding a circuit/feature. Located between the seat and the back wall.

ADJUSTABLE STEERING COLUMN

Full range of motion for increased driver comfort. Left side: Turn signal with integrated wiper. Right side: Easy-to-use transmission and engine brake control stalk (pictured).

THREADED SPRING PINS

Greaseable threads prevent spring from moving side to side within the shackle. Our exclusive design threads the pins directly into the spring bushing providing much more stability, improved feel and overall handling.

4700 OUTBOARD CAB MOUNTS

Placed as wide as possible to maximize lateral stability. Provides a more comfortable ride on rough terrain and reduces body roll in turns.

LARGE DOOR OPENING

Makes it easier and safer to get in and out of the truck.

FORGED STEEL DOOR HINGES

Internally mounted to protect from the elements. Greater durability to prevent sagging -- a common problem with piano hinges.

DOUBLE DOOR SEALS

Both the door and the cab have a weather seal that covers its perimeter. This double seal helps maximize the efficiency of our HVAC systems and provides a quieter ride.

GRADE 8 FRAME FASTENERS

Grade 8 fasteners allow for optional equipment to be installed on the frame, and retorqued in the field as needed.

WIRING STAND OFFS

Our wiring and air bundles are supported off the frame rail. This allows debris to pass behind the bundle, eliminating the possibility of abrasion which can lead to electrical and air failures.

LASER-ETCHED CHASSIS WIRING

Laser etching and color coding ensures ability to troubleshoot wiring issues for the life of the truck.

CAB INSULATION AND SOUNDPROOFING

Barium insulation is placed between the double walled steel cab. This increases the thermal and acoustic insulation of the truck. Our floor pads are thick which further improves the quiet ride of a Western Star.

IN-CAB BLOWER MOTOR

Protected in the cab rather than being on the firewall and exposed to elements.

MARINE-GRADE ROCKER SWITCHES

Large waterproof switches are easy to operate with gloves on and are protected from water and salt which can create shorts.

SUSPENDED PEDALS

Suspended brake, clutch and accelerator pedals are easy to clean, and prevent objects from becoming lodged behind pedals -- a great safety feature.

POWER DISTRIBUTION MODULES

The PDM and fuses are easily accessed by removing a panel on the passenger side dash. This allows you to sit comfortably in the cab when working on fuses rather than accessing them in an exterior location.

WIRING RACEWAY

We put our body builder interface connector and transmission control unit in the cab and out of the elements. You'll find a bolt-in pass-through plate in the cab floor to eliminate unnecessary drilling, and a dedicated floor channel with an easy-to-remove top that provides plenty of room for you to run your own wiring.

HINGED DASH

Provides quick access to wiring for service.

SAFETY

We never stop working to make the 4700 stronger and safer.

Adaptive Cruise Control

ACC helps reduce driver fatigue by maintaining the set speed when the lane ahead is clear and automatically adjusting to maintain a safe following distance when a vehicle ahead is detected.

WABCO® ONGUARD™ COLLISION MITIGATION SYSTEM

This radar safety system detects objects and alerts drivers audibly, visually and physically, applying braking power and reducing engine torque to help diminish collision severity.
