Freightliner Spotlight: Semi-Trucks Built for Efficiency

Looking at the Cascadia Evolution, M2 106 and 114 SD...

Freightliner’s trucks have been built with operational efficiency in mind at the very beginning. The legacy North American model, the Freightliner Argosy was an evolutionary model with a 50 degree wheel cut ideal for tight spots in the city and docks. The legacy Freightliner Columbia is also another great example of efficiency with maximum reliability, durability and aerodynamic styling to increase efficiency, uptime and reduce fuel costs.

Since those technological breakthroughs Freightliner’s stance on the market has remained unchanged. Freightliner consistently delivers the most dynamic and cost-efficient semi-trucks the market has seen. Let’s take a look and review some of Freightliner’s semi-trucks.

Freightliner Cascadia Evolution

The Freightliner Cascadia Evolution is built for businesses that build business. The Cascadia Evolution is made for the long haul with the most up-to-date technologies and designed with ownership cost in mind. It features evolutionary aerodynamics with 7% of savings on fuel economy compared to the previous Cascadia.

The Detroit DD15 engine leads the semi-truck industry with a proprietary asymmetric turbocharger, improved engine electronics, next-generation ARCS fuel system, new piston design and more. There are also cooling enhancements in the Cascadia Evolution to reduce vibration to improve reliability. And not only that, the Cascadia features a quick-to-service hood to open easily and wide for apt engine access, and an ultra-reliable high quality HVAC (heating, ventilation & air conditioning) system for your comfort.
