Freightliner makes LED headlamps standard on Cascadia

Successful Dealer Staff July 30, 2013

Freightliner Trucks Tuesday announced the company will make Truck-Lite high visibility LED headlamps standard on all Freightliner Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution trucks.

Custom-engineered by Truck-Lite specifically for the Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution, the company says LED lights offer superior nighttime driver visibility and enhanced safety, resulting in improved object recognition at night. The LED beam pattern also reduces eye-strain for drivers and minimizes harsh headlight glare to oncoming traffic, according to Freightliner.

Freightliner adds LED lights also reduce the draw on the vehicle’s electrical system, freeing up power for other uses and resulting in a 50-times longer lighting system life than conventional halogen technology.

The company says the headlamps underwent vigorous field testing in a variety of extreme weather conditions.

In January, Freightliner Trucks offered the custom headlamp as an aftermarket and factory installed option for the Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution.
