Kansas is a state of the United States, which is featured in American Truck Simulator as a map expansion DLC that was released on November 30, 2023. It is the twelfth map of DLC involving map expansions, but the eleventh paid one.


The state is bordered by Nebraska to the north, Missouri to the east, Oklahoma to the south, and Colorado to the west.

Introducing Kansas! A U.S State that is home to a truly authentic cowboy culture and miles of land littered with wildflowers. Located in the Midwest of the USA, Kansas is known for its native grasslands, streams, abundant blue skies, and green grassland vistas.
Once considered to be the country’s agricultural heartland, "The Sunflower State" has managed to attract many large businesses and develop in other industrial areas due to its central location and convenient infrastructure for logistics operations. But, as the nickname suggests, nature is certainly doing very well to keep up with technological progress, as the state parks and vast prairies offer unique views with a marvelous atmosphere that will leave every trucker passing by with something to remember.
