ENGINEERING FOR BUSINESSES
Freightliner Trucks is one of the most recognized and respected names in the trucking industry. As the largest division of Daimler Trucks North America, Freightliner Trucks manufactures Class 5-8 truck models, which serve a wide range of commercial vehicle applications. We engineer our trucks to increase profits by lowering your Real Cost of Ownership℠.
IMPROVING FUEL EFFICIENCY & AERODYNAMICS
We’re constantly improving our trucks’ efficiency. When powered by the integrated Detroit™ Powertrain with a DT12™ automated manual transmission and Intelligent Powertrain Management (IPM), the Cascadia Evolution can achieve up to a 13% fuel efficiency increase over the first-generation, EPA 2010-compliant Cascadia model. And both the Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution have excelled in hundreds of thousands of test miles in real-world conditions, as well as thousands of hours of testing in Daimler Trucks North America’s proprietary wind tunnel — the only full-scale, OEM-owned and operated wind tunnel for big rigs in North America.
INCREASING UPTIME & PROFIT
We’ve packed the Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution with engineering innovations designed to increase productivity and reduce operating costs. Each model is proven reliable and easy to maintain, maximizing your uptime. We also offer comprehensive, 24/7 customer support, including one of the largest dealer and service networks in the industry. Our commitment to innovation, technology and responsive customer relationships makes it easy to understand why Freightliner Trucks is the best-selling brand of heavy-duty trucks in North America.
CONNECTING YOU & YOUR BUSINESS
The Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution come equipped with the Detroit™ Connect Virtual Technician℠ remote diagnostic system. This telematics solution – standard with a DD13, DD15, or DD16 engine – lets you capture, transmit and analyze real-time engine and aftertreatment performance data, directly from your truck. Within minutes of a fault code being sent, you’ll have a preliminary diagnosis, expert recommendations and, if needed, directions to nearby service locations with the available parts. All to help you maximize uptime, saving time and money.
MAXIMIZING DRIVER SAFETY & COMFORT
Freightliner offers the latest advancements in driver safety. When you spec the Detroit Assurance™ suite of safety systems, it’s seamlessly integrated into your truck, delivering an unmatched level of on-road protection. The Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution also offer two of the widest cabs in the industry with roomy interiors that boast bigger and taller seats. The ergonomic layout of the automotive-style wraparound dash puts drivers in control, while steering-wheel-mounted controls help drivers focus on the road. And when you add ample, easily accessible storage and an optional Driver’s Lounge, you have one of the most efficient and comfortable cab environments ever developed for professional drivers.
CONTROLLING QUALITY & DURABILITY
Freightliner Trucks builds trucks to perform beyond your expectations, so drivers and fleets can concentrate on running profitable businesses. Backed by the highest resale values in the industry, the Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution are engineered with cutting-edge manufacturing technology and high-quality, durable materials. Put simply, these trucks are designed for long-term efficiency, which improves your bottom line. That’s exactly what we mean by running smart.
