Freightliner’s new Cascadia truck is now available in mid-roof cab configurations for regional overnight haulers and segments such as bulk haul and flat beds.

The configurations include 48-, 60- and 72-in. mid-roof XT sleeper cabs in both 116- and 126-in. BBC platforms. All three configurations offer two levels of aerodynamic packages, the Aero or AeroX, Freightliner’s most fuel-efficient specification. Customers can place orders now for delivery in January of 2018.

“The addition of the mid-roof configuration allows more customers in different applications to experience the benefits of the new Cascadia,” said Mike McHorse, manager of on-highway product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “Since the new Cascadia debuted in September 2016, it has earned praise as the most productive, efficient and driver-friendly truck Freightliner has ever offered to the industry.”

Features highlighted by the company include:

  • A service-friendly electronic vault (eVault) that offers convenience and protection from the elements while also increasing uptime. The eVault’s central location allows for easy access when troubleshooting most electronic control units.
  • All LED-lit interior and exterior lights.
  • An ergonomic dashboard and display screen designed for the driver. Its layout helps drivers access gauges and switches without reaching, and includes an easy-to-read instrument cluster display.
  • Detroit Connect and Detroit Assurance 4.0 integration to provide enhanced fleet management, increased uptime and improved safety.
  • Improved fuel economy compared to previous models, an upgrade stemming largely from rigorous tests in DTNA’s proprietary full-scale wind tunnel and millions of miles of real world testing.
  • A Driver Loft option is available in the 72-in. mid-roof XT configuration featuring a two-seat dinette/work table and opposing seating. These seats can be folded flat to allow a full Murphy-style bed to swing down in less than 15 seconds.
