We see trucks everyday, but do you know that you can actually differentiate between a truck built for the American market and that built for Europe? grin

Yes, you can even without knowing about Trucks.

The difference is in the design of THE CABIN.








The two pictures above shows the same carmaker (Volvo) with two different designs of trucks. The first picture shows a truck that is made for the American market, and the other shows a truck made for the European market.

In the American made designs, the Cabin is behind the engine

In the European designs, the Cabin is on top of the engine

One good advantage of the American made ones are the fact that they are very roomy..Infact, it's like a one room apartment.. They come with beds (two, in some cases), air conditioning, TV and the current models also come with microwaves too..

Also, in the event of an accident, the engine is first impacted before it gets to the cabin. So, the driver is likely to be protected.

They are very easy to fall in love with sha

For the Europeans, they have a recommended size that a tractor head must have.

One advantage i like about them is that they are easier to park unlike the Americans...Lagos can be congested, and the smaller the head, the better grin

I also don't like them because it doesn't give much free space to work on the engine angry.. Very annoying

Also, in the case of an accident, the driver can be very much affected cry

Okay...At least, we can differentiate between both if we see them

Bye everyone.. grin

I really don't know about Innoson, but it would definitely be like the Asian designs which is synonymous to that of Europe

It would look like this

In Nigeria, we drive anything..Whether our roads allow or fits in with the built....

You'll see where someone will be at the back of the truck to be lifting cable wires to enable easy passage....

I guess it is because Americans love big cars, so they made the truck bigger too grin

The most obvious difference is where the engine is.
This is due to length regulations.
In the US the length of the trailer is regulated, whereas in Europe the length of the entire vehicle is regulated.

Bad machines on fleek..... kiss kiss kiss

There is also a very pertinent reason why American trucks are designed like they are. Because of how expansive America is. Texas alone is practically the geographic size of Nigeria. It probably takes close to 11 hours of truck driving to move from one end of Texas to another. In that same time period, you will probably transverse several countries in Europe!

Now imagine that truck having to deliver goods across America. The driver has to spend most of his time living in the truck!

I thought it had to do with Engine power and Trailer Size

But anything American is always big and loud e.g their SUVs
