Although one of the best truck simulators, Euro Truck Simulator 2, or ETS 2 for short, was released in 2012, it continues to be kept alive. The developer of the game, SCS Software, continues to bring new maps and trucks to the game on a regular basis, while at the same time, it is on the way to renewing the old map and trucks.
However, one of the biggest reasons that make Euro Truck Simulator 2 special and maintains its vitality is its mod support. Many volunteer mod developers are developing mods that will increase the experience of players in Euro Truck Simulator 2. These mods include many options such as trucks, maps, sounds, truck add-ons, and trailers. We have compiled the best Euro Truck Simulator 2 mods that will bring the pleasure of the game’s players to the highest level.

The Best Euro Truck Simulator 2 Mods
If you want to play Euro Truck Simulator 2 in a multiplayer way, you can download this mod, which has been actively used by many players for years. Let’s not forget to warn you that many drivers drive trucks like racing cars.
Promods, the most famous map mod of Euro Truck Simulator 2, not only improves the original map of the game, but also greatly expands the roads you can drive by adding new countries to the map. To install Promods, you must have the original copy of the game and all necessary DLCs.
Rusmap, one of the most famous map mods with Promods, adds 62 Russian and 18 Belarusian cities to your map.
This mod, which focuses on Romania and adds all the cities in the country to the ETS 2 map, draws attention with its level of detail and fun ways. The map brings a total of 43 new cities from Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine and Moldova.
In Euro Truck Simulator 2, there are not only maps that carry the real world to the virtual environment. Fictional maps allow you to drive on roads that do not exist in reality. Grand Utopia, a fictional map, is modeled with higher quality than many real maps. There are all kinds of roads you want to drive on the map.
Unlike Rusmap, Southern Region adds cities connecting Russia to the Black Sea on your map. The map is among the maps that are again beautifully modeled.
P.S. You can run the map mods we listed above (except Grand Utopia) in the game at the same time. So you have a much larger road network than the original game.
Here are the best Euro Truck Simulator Mods for different vehicle mods.
Volvo F Series
This mod is for those who want an old case truck. Developed by Lucasi, the Volvo F Series offers an experience that will allow you to drive further with its model and sound quality.
The original Scanias that came with Euro Truck Simulator 2 have limited customization options and models. Developed by RJL, this mod adds Scania G, R, R 4-series and Streamline trucks with different chassis types and a lot of customization to your game.
Mercedes Actros MP1
If you want to add MP1, one of Mercedes Benz’s legendary trucks, to the game, you have no choice but to use this mod. Although the modeling of the truck is at a good level, the sounds it has may seem a little low quality.
DAF XF 105 (vad&k)
Again, the original DAF XF 105, which comes with the game, does not have much customization options. But this mod, developed by vad&k, will make you love the DAF XF 105 even if you don’t like it. The truck comes with high quality modeling and sound quality. But before installing the mod, make sure you have the ‘XF Tuning Pack’ DLC.
