Western Star 5700

5700 FEATURES AT A GLANCE

STEEL CAB

Durable all-welded and bonded steel cab with a galvannealed finish, and a roped-in or bonded windshield. No rivets to squeak and rattle free.

SUNVISOR

Our standard sunvisor is drag neutral and features a durable stainless steel front edge with LED marker lights.

STEEL GRILLE

Stationary high-polish stainless steel grille surround and bars, with perforated steel bug/rock screen.

FOUR-PIECE BUMPER

Modular 4-piece bumper with under-valance panel, removable end caps and stainless steel fascia for reduced repair costs.

THREE-PIECE HEADLIGHTS

Modular three-piece headlights offer reduced replacement cost and feature standard halogen bulbs which are easy to find and easy to replace at low cost.

LED MARKER LIGHTS

LED marker lights and turn signals consume less energy, are more aerodynamic and offer greater visibility and thousands of hours of life compared to incandescent bulbs.

UNDERHOOD AIR CLEANER

Dual side hood air intakes with high-capacity air cleaner.

CHASSIS FAIRINGS

Optional chassis side fairings reduce drag by up to 6% while still providing easy access to fuel tanks, DEF tank, and batteries.

SIDE EXTENDERS

20-inch side extenders with rubber flexible ends provide increased aerodynamics, saving both fuel and repair costs.

STEERING COLUMN

Our new driver-friendly column offers infinite adjustment for unmatched driver comfort, as well as self-canceling turn signals, windshield washer control and transmission stalk control with the DT12 transmission so drivers can focus on the road ahead.

STEERING WHEEL

The new state-of-the-art steering wheel is available with a wood or leather-wrapped finish, and features integrated controls for the stereo, cruise control and cruise interrupt, as well as a Bluetooth® connection for mobile phones, so drivers can keep their hands on the wheel at all times.

DOOR OPENINGS (5700)

Large door openings that make it easier and safer to get in and out of the cab.

WIRING STAND OFFS (5700)

Dedicated air, electrical, and fuel system routings for durability, reliability, and reduced maintenance costs.

OUTBOARD CAB MOUNTS (5700)

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

FORGED STEEL DOOR HINGES

Internally mounted protection 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.

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.

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.

HINGED DASH

Provides quick access to wiring for service.

HONEYCOMB SLEEPER WALL

A polypropylene honeycomb material is sandwiched between two sheets of aluminum. This construction results in the strongest and lightest sleeper material in the industry. Airplane bulkheads use this same strong, lightweight construction.

RECESSED BOLT HEADS

For fifth wheel applications, the closing cross member fasteners are recessed in the frame rail to eliminate the protrusion of a bolt head which can cause damage to trailers and the chassis. Closing cross members and frame rails are tapered with recessed bolts to give a smooth transition for trailers, and reduce the risk of chassis and trailer damage.
