I recently have gotten to drive a Peterbilt, Freightliner, International, and Volvo.

My favorite is the Peterbilt for the horse power, 600+ horse power unit which was the C16 in a 559 Peterbilt. Awesome truck! Next would be the Freightliner Colombia because of the shifting and really comfortable bed to sit on while the others are training. International Prostar because of the ride.

So now you must say your favorite truck or trucks and why.

Have at it and have fun! Can't wait to see the responses.

My favorite truck is the one that keeps me on the road and not in the shop.....

So far, I've driven a volvo vn670 and an international pro star. I like the Prostar for the space and storage, but, if I had to choose one, the volvo seems to be a better built truck. The interior seems to be more refined, and feels like it was built with better quality materials.

Knight also uses freightliner, which I hope to be able to drive at some point. I've heard they are good, and have just as much room inside as the prostar.


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Yeah I know what you mean about the Volvo being nice but our Volvo's have pretty bad steering issues in my opinion. But technically they are pretty good trucks. Freightliners are nice for their shifting. Peterbilt is pretty cool cause of the design and the power you get with them. They also seem to have a bunch of torque too. Kenworth I like for its design but I haven't been able to drive one yet.

I don't know about you but one truck I did not mention was Kenworth, their trucks just seem to have some nice handling qualities that the other trucks don't.
