Interstate 10 (I-10) is an east–west Interstate Highway in southern California, Arizona, and New Mexico in American Truck Simulator. It begins at Interstate 5 in Los Angeles and currently ends at Interstate 25 in Las Cruces, a few miles away from the border with Texas.
In real life, Interstate 10 runs from Los Angeles to Jacksonville, Florida. It is the southernmost east-west and the fourth-longest Interstate Highway in the United States, after Interstate 90, Interstate 80 and Interstate 40.

Although I-10 in real life begins in Santa Monica, the freeway originating from this point in the game is not marked as such, and does not directly connect to I-10 proper. The highway in ATS begins in Los Angeles, at its junction with Interstate 5, and soon afterwards meets with Interstate 15 in the Inland Empire. The highway moves down the gentle San Gorgonio Pass, notable for the many wind turbines along the road, and passes to the north of the Imperial Valley, where CA 111 meets with the highway at Indio. The highway climbs into the Sonoran Desert via Chiriaco Summit, and proceeds through this sparse region past the towns of Desert Center and Blythe, the latter of which being the western end of a short concurrency with US 95.
After crossing the Colorado River, I-10 enters Arizona at the town of Ehrenberg, features an eastbound Weigh Station, and soon after passes through Quartzsite, where US 95 breaks off and heads south to Yuma. After continuing through the desert, the highway reaches Phoenix, where it intersects with Interstate 17 and US 60, and from there turns southeast to Tucson. Between the two cities, I-10 encounters the eastern terminus of Interstate 8, travel services at Sunland Gin Road, and Picacho Peak, a prominent landmark. Past Tucson the highway resumes its eastward trend through a region known as the Madrean Archipelago, where it meets with AZ 90 at Benson (Although it's not in the game, it is east of this point in real life where the highway reaches its highest point at Texas Summit). Apache Pass Road provides access to San Simon, and soon after passes through the town itself. After a westbound weigh station, the highway enters New Mexico.
Across the state line, I-10 passes Lordsburg, where US 70 joins the highway. From there it proceeds through the Chihuahuan Desert, where it crosses the Great Continental Divide. East of the divide, the highway meets Deming (which features services) and offers a westbound Rest Stop. In the western limits of Las Cruces, US 70 breaks from the highway, and soon after an eastbound rest area is provided. After crossing the Rio Grande, I-10 passes by Las Cruces proper, and currently ends at its junction with Interstate 25.

Interstate 10 has a business route in San Simon.

Major intersections and facilities
- In the initial version of American Truck Simulator, Interstate 10 began at an at-grade four-way junction in eastern Los Angeles and ended at SR 111 in Indio.
- In the initial version of the Arizona map expansion DLC, the section of Interstate 10 from SR 111 in Indio to San Simon was added.
- In update 1.5, which changed the map scale from 1:35 to 1:20, Interstate 10 was extended to a new trumpet interchange with Interstate 5, and the previous terminus was changed to a diamond interchange. On the rest of the route, new sections, including the rest areas and inaccessible exits between SR 111 and Phoenix, were added to the existing route to accommodate the new map scale. The trumpet interchange with Interstate 15 and the diamond interchange with US 95 in Blythe Ehrenberg were rebuilt. The at-grade three-way junction with SR 74 was changed to a diamond interchange, while the at-grade three-way junction with an unnamed road to Interstate 40 was removed. The junction with Interstate 17 was moved from a four-level stack interchange with US 60 in eastern Phoenix to a four-level stack interchange with SR 85 in central Phoenix.
- In update 1.29, the trumpet interchange with Interstate 15 was changed to a four-level stack interchange when the route was extended to Interstate 8, and a diamond interchange with Loop 303 was added.
- In the initial version of the New Mexico map expansion DLC, the section of Interstate 10 from San Simon to Interstate 25 in Las Cruces was added.
- In update 1.35, the semi-directional T interchange with Interstate 19 in Tucson was partially rebuilt.
- "El Paso" can be seen on some road signs on I-10 near Texas, so we can assume that this city will be included in the yet-to-be-released Texas DLC.
