The Freightliner Cascadia 116-in. BBC Day Cab can now be spec’d with the Cummins X12 engine and the Eaton Cummins Endurant transmission as part of an integrated power package.
The broad ratings on the Cummins engine platforms provide Freightliner customers with additional powertrain choices that deliver performance, fuel efficiency, and in the case of the X12 with the Endurant, weight savings needed for their applications, the company says.
From Cummins’ Integrated Power portfolio, the X12 and Endurant combination is expected to be the lightest powertrain available for the Class 8 on-highway market, weighing 2,700 lbs, according to Freightliner. Driver-friendly features such as smooth shifting and quiet engine performance contribute to a comfortable in-cab environment, while Optimized Urge to Move and Creep Mode make maneuvering in low-speed environments easier.
The Freightliner Cascadia is also available with the Cummins X15 engine and the Eaton Cummins Endurant in the 126-inch BBC day cab and sleeper models.
