Freightliner releases configurator tool to spec trucks online

Daimler Trucks North America has added an online configurator tool for spec’ing the Freightliner M2 106 medium-duty truck. The tool is available on the Freightliner website, and can also be used to spec the Freightliner Cascadia.

The configurator tool uses a step-by-step program that includes choices for dump, box van, utility and tow applications, with more options to be added in the future, Daimler says. Users can explore the vehicle inside and out, and select everything from interior seating options and upholstery to grille style and mirror options.

The configurator enables users to review powertrain options such as the Detroit DD5 and DD8 engines. Customers can also use the configurator to review safety options, such as the WABCO OnGuardActive collision mitigation system or Bendix AutoVue lane departure warning system.
