Preview: Freightliner Trucks at NACVFreightliner Trucks On-Highway Newsletter
On September 25-28th, the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta will be hosting the first ever North American Commercial Vehicle (NACV) Show. Attendees can prepare to see an impressive display of on-highway and vocational trucks from Freightliner (Booth #1612).
The Freightliner booth will feature five different new Cascadia® trucks with various cab options, including a 75th Anniversary Truck that pays tribute to Freightliner’s 75 years of innovation, a silver sleeper cab that highlights the latest sleeper features and options, a silver day cab, a bulk hauler Optimaax, and a cutaway cab featuring an extended middle portion to showcase the driver’s lounge/cockpit and optional driver loft.
As the leading truck manufacturer in four out of five vocational truck segments, Freightliner will also have a few work trucks on display, all powered by legendary Detroit™ engines, including a DD5™-powered M2 106 upfitted with a Valew service body and electric over hydraulic PTO; a DD8™-powered M2 106 crew cab upfitted with a heavy spec rollback car and equipment carrier; and a DD13®-powered 114SD set-forward axle upfitted with a TBEI/OX aluminum dump body.
The booth theme that connects all of these trucks is “100% Connected,” which refers to the integrated Detroit engines, powertrains, and telematics, including Detroit Connect and the Detroit Assurance™ suite of safety systems.
The inaugural NACV Show is a joint initiative between Newcom U.S.A. and Deutsche Messe. Nearly 400 suppliers will be exhibiting at the show, which will be focused on the needs of fleet executives and decision-makers. The theme of the event is on technology and facilitating business between truck fleets and their suppliers.
