The Freightliner Cascadia is proving a sales star in North America and there’s hopes it will do just as well in Australia.
Under testing now on local roads, the Cascadia is coming our way in 2020 and will replace the Argosy in the local Freightliner Trucks range.
Now the big selling model is celebrating a major milestone with the 50,000th Freightliner Cascadia being handed over to a customer in the U.S.
The milestone coming less than 18 months after the new-generation truck went into production.
Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) tell us that driving the strong demand for the Cascadia, aside from the record truck sales in North America, are the vehicles fuel efficient Detroit powertrain and the standard safety systems.
“Our goal was to develop a truck with our customers in mind and provide them with the very best in fuel efficiency, safety and driver-focused features,” – Richard Howard, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing for DTNA.
“We want to sincerely thank all of our customers for the continued trust and partnership, and we could have never reached this significant milestone without them.”
DTNA say the Cascadia is as good as it is because of the global engineering expertise of Daimler AG and millions of miles of on-highway testing.
They say the truck is the most technologically advanced and aerodynamic Freightliner truck ever.
