What is your favorite truck and why?
I've always used a Scania, because I heard it was the "best". That's subjective, though. So I want to hear your opinions.

Volvo works for me the best. I've always thought that they all are pretty much the same other than some start with a higher HP motor than others but once you buy the accessories and what not they all seem the same to me, other than (and it may be in my mind) but it feels like the Valiant / Volvo "handles" better when I'm driving it, just seems smoother and what not. But hey, it may be just in my own mind since I'm a die hard Volvo automobile fan, or I was until it was acquired by Ford Motor cars.

No seriously, it doesn't matter which truck you choose as long as you max it out (well except for Renault).

Yeah, I was feeling stupid after I'd started out as "favouring Renault" (don't know anything about trucks)... I was thinking "damn, I'm not sure I like this game," but after I'd read a bit on the forums I switched to the Volvo starting truck and promptly went "oh, that's better."

I haven't driven a Renault truck. What is so awful about it?

Driving the Renault starting truck felt like driving a comatose hippopotamus. Went to the Volvo and it STILL felt like driving a hippo, but one during mating season. :)

To be honest, after spending a while as a trucker for hire, all the trucks felt exactly the same to me. So my "favorite" is based almost entirely on the interior, in which case, I've found Scania's dash to be the easiest to monitor for hours on end.

I tried all trucks before I bought my own, I just settled for the Scania as I like the look of the interior plus the dashboard looked the easiest to read.
I love the Majestic and the DAF :) Both fit me well

I chose the MAN, since that's what I already have as a 1:14-scale RC-truck from Tamiya.. :)
Volvo has prooven to be the strongest in real life - according to witness descriptions, I don't drive trucks myself - so that's a good No. 2!

There is nothing better than DAF XF105.510 for me so far - I'm absolutely addicted to this one atm. If you could manage to find some quite good mods then it's up to your own preferences to interior, external look, and of course engine sound. Frankly, most likely I would be ready to get even some quality payware mods if those will appear in the future - Train Simulator Add-ons is a good example of growing market.

I enjoy the VOLVO mostly because the dashboard has the biggest numbers and it just looks nice!

I honeslty haven't seen that much difference between the trucks. Driving Scania only because there seem to be the most mods / skins for it.

There definitely is a difference in truck quality in this game, at least with the ones that you can buy at lower levels.

The most basic Valiant has 600hp for 100,000 euros, whereas the same basic Scania also for 100,000 euros only has 400hp or so.

The difference is significant, the Scania will have trouble hauling loads up steep quarries, even to the point of stopping dead at too steep a gradient and will have very slow acceleration uphill in general.

The Valiant will be a lot faster going uphill and will easily take on any steepness with ease.

I started in London so luckily bought a Valiant first of all, it was only after buying the equivalent Scania that I realised what a difference the HP stat makes. To that end, the entry level Valiant is amazing value and IMO the best of all the entry level trucks.
