WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Daimler Trucks North America says it is effectively “sold out” for 2019, as it begins production of a significantly refreshed new Cascadia.
LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Freightliner has sold 65,000 new Cascadias and booked 50,000 additional orders since first introducing its signature truck in 2017. Now that new Cascadia is about to become even newer thanks to a broad series of upgrades. Picture a truck that, in selected cases, will even act on its own.
This five-video series looks closely at Freightliner’s New Cascadia. It’s not a rework or a remake of the popular Cascadia, but clean-page design. Fuel efficiency is said to be 8 percent better than the current Evolution model and a whopping 13 percent better than the base-model Cascadia. But engineers didn’t stop there.
While the New Cascadia is the most fuel efficient truck the company has ever built, all the fuel savings in world won’t matter much compared to the cost of serious collision. That’s why it’s probably also the safest.
