Two 114SD NGs Are Going to the NTEA Work Truck Show

Freightliner is emphasizing a hard-working truck at this year’s Work Truck Show, having brought one CNG-fueled 114SD NG (severe duty natural gas) dump truck to the Green Truck Ride-and-Drive, and a second, fitted with a snow plow, for its expo hall display.

Freight;liner is showing this 114SD NG truck for Mass DoT at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis March 4-7.

This Freightliner 114SD NG, sold by the Tri State Truck Center in Shrewsbury to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, will be displayed at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis March 4-7. A second will be in the event’s Green Truck Ride-and-Drive.

New customers for the 114SD NG include the Massachusetts Department of Transportation – whose new 114SD NG is to be on show in Indianapolis.

“While most of Freightliner’s 60% growth in natural gas sales in 2013 was attributed to the introduction of the (11.9-liter, up-to-400-horsepower Cummins Westport) ISX12 G into the Cascadia, natural gas sales with the M2 112 and 114SD models to local governments grew by more than 40%,” says Greg Treinen, segment product marketing manager for the 114SD and other natural gas trucks.

A Good Winter

“About a quarter of 2013’s government/municipal sales were snow plows,” he told F&F.

Freightliner’s M2 112 and 114SD NG models are both powered by the 11.9-liter ISL G, also manufactured by Cummins Westport.

Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp is at WTS-2014 too. Among FCCC’s several alternative fuel offerings is the S2G, a dedicated-propane autogas truck introduced at the NTEA Work Truck Show in 2012.

The 114SD, introduced at ACT Expo 2011 in Long Beach, Calif., is the first Freightliner truck offered with a CNG option from its initial factory run.
