The new Freightliner Cascadia® represents a revolution in the trucking industry. With over one million hours of research and development and millions of miles of real-world testing, the new Cascadia is the result of a sustained, concentrated investment in the future of trucking.
The original Freightliner Cascadia is known for performance, reliability and comfort, and the newest iteration is no exception.
From its inception, the Freightliner team set out to build a better truck, one that expands Freightliner’s approach to lowering customers’ Real Cost of OwnershipSM (RCO) and placing additional emphasis on the key role of professional truck drivers. As a result, the new Cascadia is safer, more comfortable and more profitable to own.
Freightliner engineers have loaded the new Cascadia with groundbreaking innovations and are using cutting-edge quality manufacturing processes to increase your operational productivity. We’ve taken trucking down to a science.
