Freightliner® Cascadia®: Acrobatic Grace Meets Brute Power
At TSVA, we’re always on the lookout for trucks that have all the features necessary to get the job done at an affordable price. The Freightliner® Cascadia® possesses both traits, and for our money, it’s one of the very best values on the market. Available in day cab, raised roof and mid-roof XT configurations, there’s a Cascadia to suit any fleet.
Maneuverability isn’t necessarily the first thing you associate with a truck. But with Cascadia’s 50-degree wheel cut, you’ll find yourself winding through turns and tight spaces with the ease normally reserved for a much smaller vehicle. The ride gets even easier with the optional Hendrickson AIRTEK® front axle suspension, which uses a combination of air and leaf springs to allow the Cascadia to effortlessly ride over bumps that would make any other truck dip and bounce. With a hydraulic clutch system, shifting gears in the Cascadia is a breeze. And without those noisy mechanical linkages, your shifting foot and your ears get a much-needed break.
Fuel-Efficient Power Plants
The heart of every great truck is its engine, and the Cascadia has an impressive lineup to choose from. The available Detroit DD13®, DD15®, and DD16® engines feature BlueTec® SCR emissions technology, which provides greater fuel economy than ever before. The Cascadia is also available with the Cummins ISX12 G heavy-duty natural gas engine, which can crank out 400 hp and 1,450 lb-ft of torque. The ISX12 G can operate on either compressed natural gas or liquefied natural gas. Each of these workhorse engines will give you maximum output with the fuel efficiency you need to maximize profits.
The Cutting Edge
The sleek and aerodynamic shape of the Cascadia’s fascia was sculpted from hours inside Freightliner’s state-of-the-art wind tunnel facilities. As a result, you’ll cut through the air like a knife, amounting to even better fuel economy and a smoother ride. It’ll take a lot more than heartland highway gusts to throw this truck off-track.
The Bottom Line
Trucking is no stroll in the park, but driving the responsive and nimble Cascadia will put a big smile on your face. Throw in the exceptional gas mileage, and your highway runs just might become pleasure cruises. If you’re ready to take trucking to a higher plateau, contact TSVA today. As your truck customization experts, we’ll get you behind the wheel of a Cascadia that fits your needs.
