Freightliner Cascadia Evolution
As one of the most aerodynamic models in the Freightliner collection, the Freightliner Cascadia Evolution features the results of continuous engineering. The semi truck’s shape alone offers a 7% increase in fuel economy, which adds up on long hauls. This, paired with the host of other refinements under the hood, create one of the finest rigs to grace the highways.
Cutting edge technology reduces costs by making routine maintenance simpler, faster, and less frequent. The Cascadia Evolution has the onboard Detroit™ Virtual Technician diagnostic system, which can help square away minor malfunctions and other maintenance concerns from the comfort of the vehicle’s cab any time. This can be very useful for minor issues that develop on long hauls, as the driver can let the fleet manager know upon arrival so it can be dealt with promptly rather than continuing to drive the semi truck without being aware of the problem.
Advancements in the technology found under the hood help reduce how frequently maintenance has to happen. The fuel filter module, for one example, extends the service change interval to 100,000 miles. The next generation Amplified Common Rail Fuel System (ACRS) grant higher injector pressure for significantly improved combustion control.
With engine options ranging from 455 to 505 horsepower, the Cascadia Evolution is equipped to haul any type of load your fleet needs. This semi truck is powered exclusively by the Detroit DD15 engine, which includes a proprietary asymmetric turbocharger, advanced ACRS fuel system, and BlueTec SCR emissions technology for cleaner operation.
All the technological advancements under the hood are well and great, but they don’t mean much if the truck isn’t comfortable on long trips. The Freightliner Cascadia Evolution spares no expense here. The cab is engineered with extra insulation for reduced road noise and some isolation when the driver needs to sleep. The quiet cab can reduce audible vibration while driving by up to 50 percent, which can go a long way toward staving off driver fatigue.
The roomy cab features 24″ of space between seats and 84″ of headroom, maximizing comfort for drivers of all sizes and allowing one to easily stretch out when needed.
Other cab features include:
- Mini fridge at waist level (easy access)
- Rattle-free shelves
- Plush mattress (40″ x 80″)
- Tall mid-roof design with 78″ in the bunk area. Available in 48″, 60″, and 72″ sleeper lengths
