Freightliner Trucks announced at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky. this week that its 2014 Cascadia Evolution has reached more than 10,000 orders. Introduced in 2012, the truck is now in full production.
The Cascadia Evolution features aerodynamic and efficiency improvements that deliver up to an additional 7 percent improvement in fuel economy over an EPA 2010-compliant Cascadia, and up to 5 percent improvement in fuel efficiency over the 2013 Cascadia with first-generation aerodynamic enhancements.
“The Cascadia Evolution has been well-received by the market as customers are looking for every opportunity to lower their total cost of ownership,” said Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks.
Freightliner also announced this week the Cascadia Evolution can now be equipped with a fully integrated Detroit powertrain that includes the Detroit DT12TM automated manual transmission.
