Freightliner Trucks enhances Business Class M2 106V

Freightliner Trucks announced improvements to its Business Class M2 106V that enhance performance and efficiency while also accommodating the new 2010 emissions requirements, the company said. It is designed for medium- and heavy-duty vocational applications requiring a front engine PTO and front frame extensions, such as refuse collection; snow plowing, crane and utility operations and fire/emergency needs.



New features include a larger capacity 1,200 sq.-in. radiator, which can accommodate up to 380 HP with automatic transmission and up to 80,000 lbs. GVW. Composite headlights offer improved lighting performance with halogen bulbs that are easy to replace and widely available. A new Blend-Air intake system pulls air from under and outside the hood, which Freightliner said helps the stream of air when snow and debris may otherwise constrict airflow. Integral straight front frame rail extensions are standard, and available in 6-in. and 24-in. lengths, providing a solid mounting point for hydraulic pumps, winches, front stabilizers and snowplows. 



The truck also features a lightweight, non-corrosive aluminum cab plus a new fiberglass hood with re-styled front fenders. Special attention was paid to the cab design to decrease driver fatigue and increase productivity, including low step-in heights, large door openings and flexible seating options standard. A 2,500 sq.-in. windshield provides improved visibility for spotting potential hazards, Freightliner stated.



The company added that Allison Optimized Packages can be spec’d for specific vocational applications, to configure the driveline to deliver performance, durability, fuel efficiency and protection.
