"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."
— Official American Truck Simulator Website

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.[13]
  • NM 371, could start at the Interstate 40 in Gallup and end at the US 64 in Farmington.
