"Howdy, partners! Hope y'all will like your visit in the Lone Star State, Texas. This place ain't full of cowboys anymore but the spirit lives on, especially in ranches you can find all 'round. We also got a lot of cattle and other livestock so your truckin' adventures will be lively. We also love music. Like, really love music. Just look at Austin, the live music capital of the world. Party on. Look plumb over yonder and you'll see the city which got the message about the problem. Sure'nuff, we're talking about Houston. So enjoy the drive."
American Truck Simulator - Texas Steam store page[1]

Texas is a state of the United States, which is featured in American Truck Simulator as an upcoming map expansion DLC and in the 18 Wheels of Steel series. It will be the tenth map of DLC involving map expansions, but the ninth paid one.

The state is bordered by Oklahoma to the north, Arkansas and Louisiana to the east, the Mexican states of Tamaulipas, Nuevo León, Coahuila de Zaragoza, and Chihuahua to the south and southwest, and New Mexico to the west.

The state has been indirectly mentioned by SCS Software CEO Pavel on the Idaho release stream.

SCS Software CEO Pavel said: "The state of Texas will obviously take a lot of time and effort for SCS due to the large scale of it".
