LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Western Star Trucks has introduced a new walk-through sleeper for the Constellation Class 8 highway tractor. A first ever for Western Star’s trucks, the option provides stand-up room throughout the cab and sleeper compartment.

Available in 70-inch and 82-inch sizes and with a variety of new features, the walk-through sleeper will be an available option on the Constellation 4964EX beginning in the fourth quarter of this year.

"The walk-through sleeper option delivers a level of spaciousness and comfort never before seen in the Constellation,” said John Merrifield, senior vp of sales and marketing for Sterling Truck Corp. and Western Star.

According to Merrifield, the new walk-through sleeper features 96 inches of stand-up room at the front of the bunk and at the back of the driver's seat, as well as a flat floor throughout the unit to allow the trucker to move safely and without encumbrance.

In developing the new walk-through sleeper, Western Star also added an overhead console, additional storage space and a skylight. The company also increased its bunk options to include a raised double bunk or a wide bunk.
