Freightliner highlights new options for 122SD truck

Freightliner Trucks showcased several new options for its 122SD truck. The flagship of the Freightliner severe-duty line of vocational trucks, the 122SD is ideal for heavy, oversized loads, and can be configured for a variety of severe-duty options, including oil/gas field services, concrete mixing, specialty/heavy-haul, crane, dump and towing/recovery, said the company.

The new options for the 122SD are best suited for severe terrain and off-road applications. They include oil pan skid plates, 12-in. frame rails, threaded front suspension spring pins and bushing, and heavy-duty bolted cross-members. Front-bumper mud flaps and fog lights with rock guards are also available as factory-installed options.

“We work with our customers to understand what they need to be effective and productive in the toughest of applications,” said Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “Our new options for the 122SD are the latest in a wide breadth of products that help our vocational customers succeed.”

In addition to the new options, the 122SD’s standard features contribute to uptime and dependability, Freightliner said, “such as a durable and reinforced aluminum cab, plus enhancements for severe duty environments.” The 122SD features a GVWR of up to 92,000-lbs. and a GCWR of up to 160,000-lbs. It is also available with manual and automated manual transmission options that are ideal for heavy-duty applications, as well as engine options with ratings up to 600 HP and 2,050 lbs./ft. of torque.

“We continue to listen to our customers to add valuable options across our entire severe-duty line up, including the 114SD, the 108SD and the 122SD,” Aufdemberg said. “The result is a powerful family of trucks that deliver what customers want in a severe duty product.”
