“We know our medium-duty customers want options that enhance productivity, efficiency and driver recruitment, and we are delivering smart solutions on all levels,” said Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “We are committed to helping our customers maximize their business investment by offering options that contribute to lowering the real cost of ownership.”

The new options for the M2 106 include Allison Transmission’s FuelSense technology, which is ideal for pickup and delivery applications. FuelSense is a set of software packages that automatically adapts to shift cycles and torque, maximizing transmission efficiency based on load, grade and duty cycle, without compromising performance, according to the manufacturer. When ordered in the Efficiency Package, FuelSense is paired with a 220 HP and 600 lb./ft. of torque Cummins ISB6.7 engine.

The Efficiency Package also features an increased torque rating that allows operation at lower engine RPMs and FuelSense’s neutral-at-stop feature, which takes the load off the engine and transmission while stopped in traffic or at a light. The Efficiency Package also includes a 5.22 axle ratio and synthetic fuel efficiency lube for the steer and drive axles.

Interior options include a roof console with storage, premium insulation, a wood grain instrument panel, additional in-dash power outlets, Bluetooth-enabled SiriusXM radio, a high-back air suspension heated driver seat, dual driver seat armrests, power windows and door locks, and an adjustable tilt and telescoping steering column.

The Professional Image Package has a variety of chrome and bright finish options for the M2 106, including a chrome hood mounted air intake grille, a hood-mounted chromed plastic grille, a 14-in. round polished air horn, chrome headlight bezels, bright-finished heated and remote mirrors, polished fuel tanks with painted bands, three-piece chromed steel bumper, and polished stainless steel steps.
