New Features for Cascadia 113 Natural Gas
Freightliner will show a Cascadia 113 Natural Gas tractor at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville this week – it’s the first trade show display of a CNG Cascadia with the 48-inch sleeper cab that’s just gone into full production. The truck is powered by the 400-horsepower version of the ISX12 G engine by Cummins Westport.
The latest CNG Cascadia has a 10-speed manual transmission and 140 DGE capacity factory-installed compressed natural gas fuel tanks with capacity of 140 DGE – 100 diesel gallon equivalents back-of-cab and 40 DGE on the left-hand rail.
“We also just announced the addition of Meritor WABCO’s OnGuard collision avoidance system on our Cascadia natural gas tractors when spec’d with a manual transmission,” advises product marketing manager Greg Treinen.
The truck is being unveiled at 4pm Wednesday.
MATS 2014 runs March 27-29 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.
