Freightliner Trucks’ Team Run Smart pro drives Cascadia natural gas tractor

Freightliner Trucks delivered a Freightliner Cascadia 113 CNG tractor to Team Run Smart pro Jimmy Nevarez. Nevarez will run the truck in southern California and blog about his experiences at

Nevarez was selected as a PRO by Freightliner Trucks last year, and has been providing tips to other professional drivers through Team Run Smart. Based out of Chino, Calif., Nevarez owns Angus Transportation, Inc., an independent contractor, and has been in the trucking industry for more than 12 years.

The Cascadia 113 CNG tractor is equipped with the new Cummins Westport ISX12 G Heavy-duty natural gas engine. Best suited for regional hauling and LTL, the engine can pull up to 80,000 lbs., making it ideal for the varied freight that Nevarez carries. The truck will also feature a 140 diesel gas equivalent fuel tank capacity, enabling an estimated 500 to 600 miles in range.
