The game features very detailed truck models. All trucks in this game are officially licensed by companies such as Kenworth, International Lonestar, Peterbilt, and Volvo. Players can customize the truck according to their preferences. They can change cabins and paint. They can also upgrade the truck’s chassis, tunning accessories, and engine. Players can select their custom trailers, including dumpers, flatbeds, goosenecks, lowboys, and reefers. The longer the trailer, the more difficult it will be while driving. Players have to be careful when hauling and parking with their trailers.
