I have always been a lover of Scania, I dont really know why and my next preference goes to Volvo.

Volvo because I love how the new Volvo looks and I don't see Europe trucks really all because I live in America and I see the American trucks all the time. But I do have a favorite with American truck but that will be told after ATS comes out.

I've not decided when it comes to american trucks yet, I like the Volvo 780 just because it's a volvo, although there's something nice about the Kenworth's too :P

I see Peterbuilt, Kenworth, Mack, International, and any other americans trucks on the road a lot. I like it when your on the highway next to a old truck like a Kenworth and you hear the Jake brake going and its really loud! :P :D

Where I live, it's mostly Volvo VNL 780's and Freightliner Cascadia's, with the occasional Kenworth and Peterbilt.

As to the topic though, I picked Volvo for it's tasteful interior, and good engine sounds. If I could pick two, Scania would be in a close second, I find when I drive the Scanias, the cab react to turns a bit differently than the Volvo's, I feel like the whole thing is going to tip over, a lot more than the Volvo would, that could be me hallucinating though lol.

Pretty much all the old trucks over here have been exported to Africa now, they cost more to run/tax for the companies because the engines aren't the eco-friendly ones :p

i like the volvo fh16(new) because it has a commanding powertrain and it never gets stuck on hills like stein bruch plus a heavy load along with it,it does has tiny bit of a slow down but it does make it up the hill,its a great choice, in total you can go up 30 or even 40 rpm on the hill but you have to get up the hill fast or you'l have a hesitation.iveco daf so far dont make the cut when it comes to that area both of them stall when going up the hill but they do restart it only goes up to 15 to 10 rpm, in my opinion they better steer clear of steep hills and stick to roadways its easier going down but its not easy coming back up.there nice trucks as far as scania man nothing to report,but i will be honest i havent taken them to stein bruch but only to drop things off,:) but for the renault premium for some reason it doesint move fast enough,the reanault magnum perfoms just fine, but mainly i like scania and volvo and man would be my best choices,as for majestic(mercedess) they have they have good capabilities but it only has one gas tank which makes it a gas guzzler,meaning the eco driving might not help you if your running short on gas,it does help when it comes to getting gas not burning quickly,the majestic will do that without the eco driving, ;)

Volvo was love at first sight. I also like Scania's but not as much as Volvo. And also whit the new improvements that they added to the new Volvo trucks the reason I chose them is rather simple. At least from my point of view.

For now since ETS 2 is out and ATS isn't released, I stick with Scania only because of the sounds it has.

It's a shame you didn't put Peterbilt! I love my 389 and 387! I like 'em because I drive 'em. I've got a nicely tuned J-Brake, so it makes a nice, deep roar.... The 389 below is my in-game truck, while the 387 below is the truck I drive!

Where did you find an american trailers mod? The two main mod sites I frequent don't have anything on there.

No clue where I got it from. I found it on my old external harddrive, and I updated the model, and skinned it :P.

The Volvo FH16 2013.
Why?

  • Great design
  • Perfect driving
  • Good engine (switched with a mod to a 10.000HP engine)
  • Best tuning-support
  • Included in a mod I use featuring yellow-blue skin, yellow-blue wheels, 8x4-chassis (there are even bigger available)
  • and because I LOVE that truck :D

Favourite Truck
DAF
Renault Magnum AND Premium.
Why?

  • I like the look of them
  • The Magnum doesn't have a bad engine
  • I like the interior
  • There's not too much to edit
I guess I just like less powerful trucks. If I were to choose a 2nd truck, It'd be a Scania Streamline.
