5700 Series…


When we decided to build a new fuel-efficient truck, we set out to create something different. Something with the tough performance and traditional look of a classic truck, but built for the modern age. We didn’t overlook a single detail along the way, combining Western Star’s heritage with Daimler’s engineering to improve efficiency, aerodynamics and profitability.

Power and Performance

The Western Star 5700XE features powerful and efficient Detroit power. When these engines are coupled with Detroit™ axles and the DT12™ transmission, you get a dependable package that’s engineered and designed by one manufacturer,
maximizing power, fuel economy and performance.

The 5700XE features the DT12 transmission standard. This 12-speed, direct- or over drive automated manual transmission gives you the drivability you need while optimizing fuel economy.

Every Western Star is built to make light work of even the toughest jobs. When you add the Integrated Detroit™  Powertrain to the mix, you can optimize performance and efficiency on the road and for your bottom line.

Prioritizing Operator Safety

Starting with proven steel cabs, we’ve always taken safety seriously. With the 5700XE, we’ve taken that passion for safety several steps further.

  • WABCO OnGuard™ Collision Mitigation System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Warning System (LDW)
  • ABS with Roll Stability Control

Comfort and Safety

A Western Star built in the United States, using the best Daimler technology, with proven Western Star components and features.

Galvannealed steel cabs are built to keep you safe. Bonded instead of riveted, precision-welded for strength, then dipped and protected with a 12-stage e-coat process for long-lasting corrosion resistance.

Lightest sleeper on the market – part of the reason for our space-age honeycomb construction. It provides increased insulation and sound resistance, and as offers a superior finish and easier repair.
