Overall Truck Ratings Edit

  • The trucks in the game are based on power, handling, visibility, brakes, and max hauling power [in tonnes/tons]
  • All points are based out of 5 for power, handling, visibility, and brakes. Max Load (tonnes) points are based out of 60.
  • The overall rating for each truck is power, handling visibility, brakes, and max load (tonnes) divided by five (5).
  • Formula: Power + Handling + Visibility + Brakes + Max Load (tons) ÷ five (5) = Overall rating for each truck.
  • If the number exceeds 65 total points, add 10 to 65 to make it 75. Then divide to find the actual overall for the truck. 
  • 0 = Terrible, 1 = Poor, 2 = Fair, 3 = Good, 4 = Great, 5 = Excellent, 6 = Phenomenal (6 is for modded trucks only)
  • Tonnes: 0 - 25= Terrible, 25 - 30 = Poor, 30 - 35 = Fair, 35 - 45 = Good, 45 - 55 = Great, 55 - 60 = Excellent, 60+ = Phenomenal (60+ is for modded trucks only)
