Daimler Trucks North America announced its Freightliner Cascadia 116-inch bumper-to-back-of-cab day cab model can be spec’d with the Cummins X12 engine and the Eaton Cummins Endurant transmission — and is aimed at weight-conscious applications.
The X12 and Endurant combination is expected to be the lightest powertrain available for the Class 8 on-highway market, weighing only 2,700 pounds. It is a perfect match for weight-sensitive markets like bulk and regional haul applications, according to Portland, Ore.-based DTNA.
The Freightliner Cascadia is also available with the Cummins X15 engine and the Eaton Cummins Endurant in the 126-inch BBC day cab and sleeper models. — Transport Topics
