Freightliner’s new Cascadia will now be offered in a 60-in. raised roof sleeper model in both 116- and 126-in. BBC platforms, adding to the number of configurations available for the groundbreaking truck model.

“Driver experience is a key part of our ‘Real Cost of Ownership’ proposition, and this is another solution the new Cascadia offers to address a variety of customer needs,” said Mike McHorse, manager of on-highway product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “With the shorter wheelbase and reduced weight versus a 72-in. sleeper, this truck spec is lighter and more maneuverable, while still giving drivers a comfortable, spacious area to work and rest.”

The new 60-in. raised roof sleeper’s interior features a lower bunk with storage underneath, and a choice of either a cargo shelf for additional storage or an upper bunk with a telescoping ladder, providing easy access for team drivers. There is also a longer wardrobe cabinet for hanging clothes, a large microwave cabinet, an optional flat-panel TV bracket and an area for customer-supplied refrigerators or coolers.

The new 60-in. raised roof configuration is available with either Aero or AeroX aerodynamic packages. It features the Integrated Detroit Powertrain with either a DD13 or DD15 engine, as well as the DT12 transmission with Intelligent Powertrain Management (IPM4), and Detroit axles with axle lubrication management (ALM). The new configuration is also available with Cummins X15 engines and Eaton Fuller Advantage transmissions.

Freightliner Trucks has also announced 48-, 60- and 72-in. mid-roof XT sleeper cabs in both 116- and 126-in. BBC platforms. Customers can now place orders for delivery of all cab configurations in January.
