A very common way to say it is "eighteen-wheeler".  (It has 18 wheels, right?)  A less colloquial way is "semi-truck" or merely "semi".  These trucks have two parts:  the tractor (the front part with the motor) and the trailer (the rear part where goods or loads are carried. 

 

Do you see the red eighteen-wheeler in that lot?

Do you mean the semi parked next to the fence?

Yes, the one with the red tractor and white trailer.

Yes, I see it.  What about it?
