Freightliner’s revolutionary new Cascadia model is now available in mid-roof cab configurations for regional overnight haulers and segments such as bulk haul and flat beds, the company announced at the North American Commercial Vehicle (NACV) show.

The configurations include 48-, 60- and 72-in. mid-roof XT sleeper cabs in both 116- and 126-in. BBC platforms. All three configurations offer two levels of aerodynamic packages, the Aero or AeroX, Freightliner’s most fuel-efficient specification.

Customers can place orders now for delivery in January of 2018. Cq5dam thumbnail 1050 1050 (1)

“The addition of the mid-roof configuration allows more customers in different applications to experience the benefits of the new Cascadia,” says Mike McHorse, Manager, On-Highway Product Marketing, Freightliner Trucks. “Since the new Cascadia debuted in September 2016, it has earned praise as the most productive, efficient and driver-friendly truck Freightliner has ever offered to the industry.”

Features include:

  • A service-friendly electronic vault (eVault) that offers convenience and protection from the elements while also increasing uptime. The eVault’s central location allows for easy access when troubleshooting most electronic control units.
  • All LED-lit interior and exterior lights, making the lighting system more maintenance-friendly than ever.
  • An ergonomic dashboard and display screen designed for the driver. Its layout helps drivers access gauges and switches without reaching, and includes an easy-to-read instrument cluster display.
  • Detroit Connect and Detroit Assurance 4.0 seamlessly integrated into the new Cascadia, provide enhanced fleet management, increased uptime and improved safety.
  • Improved fuel economy compared to previous models, an upgrade stemming largely from rigorous tests in DTNA’s proprietary full-scale wind tunnel and millions of miles of real world testing.
  • A Driver Loft option is available in the 72 in. mid-roof XT configuration featuring a two-seat dinette/work table and opposing seating. These seats can be folded flat to allow a full Murphy-style bed to swing down in less than 15 seconds.

“Designed and engineered with an emphasis on our real cost of ownership solutions, the new Cascadia sets the benchmark for fuel efficiency, safety, connectivity, quality, uptime, and driver experience,” McHorse says.
