Freightliner Cascadia
Range-topping Freightliner Cascadia Road Train on show
Freightliner Cascadia 17th May 2023 Tags:

The mighty Cascadia is front and centre on the Freightliner stand at the Brisbane Truck Show, which runs from May 18-21 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Both the 116 and 126 Cascadias are on show. The road-focused design and layout means the Cascadia offers exceptional ride quality. This is combined with premium seats, an ergonomic layout and high levels of refinement for driver comfort.

A top of the range 126 Road Train is the star of the stand, featuring a spacious 60-inch cab that turns it into a home-away-from home.

The big Cascadia features a tough factory-developed bullbar designed to protect the truck without affecting the operation of the front radar unit that forms part of the Detroit Assurance active safety pack.

All 126 models feature the big 16-litre six-cylinder DD16 Detroit engine that pumps out up to 600hp and 2050lb-ft of torque. It can be paired with a 12-speed Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) that is so smart it can use GPS and topographic data to help the truck maximise its coasting and pick the perfect gear for the terrain. Customers are also able to select an old-school 18-speed Eaton manual if they prefer.

Freightliner will also showcase the shorter 116 Cascadia, which gets the job done with a strong 13-litre Detroit six-cylinder.

The Cascadia has quickly established itself as a fuel economy leader in the conventional class thanks to its strong but smart engine and transmission as well as its aerodynamic design. It also features class-leading connectivity that enable fleets to access a raft of data from every truck in real time.

Cascadia trucks feature the full Detroit Assurance suite of advanced safety features as standard, including the radar/camera Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Intelligent High Beam (IHB), while Side Guard Assist (SGA) is available as an option.

Freightliner has prepared a special cut-away of a sleeper cab, so attendees can check out the comfort features of the cavernous space including the bunk beds and other elements.
