It's considered as a cab-over or COE (Cab Over Engine) type truck which has a flat face with the cab of the truck sitting on the engine and front axle. This truck chassis configuration is currently common among European and Japanese truck manufacturers, because the laws governing overall vehicle lengths are strict and the body style allows longer trailers or a longer cargo area for the same overall length.
