ATS Mod Review–Freightliner Classic

Since the release of American Truck Sim, I’ve been driving the default or in-game trucks.  Like many others, I’ve added sound mods to get a better and more true-to-life sound from these trucks.  It was quite disappointing the first day I played ATS to sound the horn on my brand new Peterbilt and it sounds like beep-beep instead of the HONK-HONK that it should have.  I still tend to switch between my Peterbilt 579 and the Kenworth W900.  However, I was out looking at a few of the mod websites and I saw this Freightliner Classic which had been re-worked and had pretty positive feedback in the comment section.  So I decided to try it out.

Like the Kenworth W900, it has that classic truck look.  The pictures below show the base truck as it comes from the dealership (it can be purchased from any Kenworth dealership).  I upgraded the engine and transmission to better suit my needs (more power).

The interior is nice and clean.  It features an on-dash SatNav and digital gear indicator just below.

I hauled a load of pipe from Los Angeles, CA to Ely, NV and she handled well.
