Freightliner. The technology in the truck seems the most user-friendly. I like the descent control feature and the way the engine break works overall. The eco/coasting feature (I forget the proper term for it) while cruising is nice too. I currently drive an International. I can't really say I dislike it. I just prefer a Freightliner. The Freightliner feels like it has more storage as well.

Peterbilt 567 with set forward front axle. The only thing I would have changed would be the seats.

In my brief time I have only driven a manual Mack Pinnacle and an auto Freightliner . I prefer the manual Mack! Especially for backing, I like the control you have with the clutch rather then the brake with an auto.

I have driven freightliners, Pete 579, T680, in driving school a very old volvo. I drove a beat up freightshaker and a brand new one circa 2007 I really liked the newest one. Peterbilt 579 I like also.

To edit my last post, the 2007 new freigtliner was my favorite of all. Nothing but Peterbilts since. smile.gif

I’d go with that myself... Mack Pinnacle w/10 speed manual.

Freightliner our new KWs are not bad but I still prefer a FL.

I've only driven autos. We have internationals, freightliner, volvos and KW t680s.

I like the fit and finish and comfort level of Kenworth. Excellent stereo system. The easiest of the trucks we have to back up with the urge to move function. It works really well, and you can finesse the brake pedal.
