The Freightliner Cascadia Evolution
Great Ideas Evolve Into Greater Ideas. The Cascadia Evolution builds on the technologies on four previous models—engine efficiency, advanced aerodynamics, fleet management tools—to deliver up-to a 7% increase in fuel economy over our first-generation EPA 2010-compliant Cascadia model.
- Newly Designed Detroit DD15
- 7% Increased Fuel Economy
- BlueTec Emissions Technology
Available With The DT12™ Automated Manual Transmission
An automated manual transmission (AMT) combines a traditional clutch-actuated manual gearbox with a computer-controlled shift actuator and clutch. The best shift patterns are selected electronically to provide optimal power or fuel efficiency. An AMT is a proven technology around the world. At Detroit, we believe it represents the next generation. With computer controlled shifting and clutch engagement, only two pedals are needed to operate the truck, brake and accelerator.
