Conventional box trucks
The engine for a conventional box truck is placed in front of the cabin, which makes them longer and causes them to have a different appearance than other types of box trucks. This feature makes them longer, and gives the body of these box trucks a “nose.” While this does cause them to look different, it also provides for a longer wheelbase than other types of box trucks and makes the driving experience more comfortable, as the wheels sit just in front of the cab.
Cab Over Engine
Cab Over Engine box trucks also have several advantages for their drivers, as the engine is placed directly underneath the cab of these box trucks. Because of the placement of the wheels in Cab Over Engine box trucks, they have a tighter turning radius than conventional models. This also provides more real estate for the windshield to be expanded, giving them greater visibility. If you have deliveries in congested areas that require enhanced maneuverability, tighter turning and a greater field of view, Cab Over Engine box trucks may be the right choice for you.
