Engineered to exceed your expectations.

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 Sleeper

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

WABCO® OnGuardTM 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.

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.

4700 Interior

In control, comfortably.

This truck is truly built around the driver. Inside, you’ll find a modern dash with an easy-to-read instrument cluster, paired with a steering wheel and column with integrated controls that keep you in command. It’s all in a cab that’s 72 inches wide to make it a place where you’ll love to work every day.
