Autocar Truck

Autocar is an American manufacturer of vocational trucks. Autocar's vehicles are Cab Over Engine (COE) or cab forward models that have a semi-hood vertical front, where the truck's cabin sits above the front axle. In a conventional truck, the engine is fixed in front of the driver. Autocar's cabin offers drivers more room and better visibility. Autocar vehicles are known for their durability.
