"New Mexico (Navajo: Yootó Hahoodzo) is the fifth largest by area and the 36th most populous of the U.S. states. This corner-state has diverse nature which includes deserts, high plains, and mountains. The climate is generally semi-arid to arid because New Mexico has very little water."
New Mexico is a state featured in American Truck Simulator and 18 Wheels of Steel games. It was announced on February 2, 2017 to celebrate the game's first anniversary and was released on November 9, 2017. It is the second map DLC after Arizona, but the first paid one.

Possible Future Roads Edit
(based on usa.dds file in game files)
- US 60 could be extended from its current end in the scenery city Vaughn to the Interstate 25.
- US 70 could be extended from its current end in Las Cruces to Arizona toward the future city Clifton.
- US 550 could go from the Interstate 25 in Albuquerque to the US 64 in the scenery city Bloomfield (near Farmington). A map developer is seen working on it in the "SCS visits KRONE" video.
- NM 371, could start at the Interstate 40 in Gallup and end at the US 64 in Farmington.
