The Cascadia Evolution 125" BBC Day Cab, Mid-Roof XT and Raised Roof configurations are powered by a newly-designed DD15 engine.* It features a proprietary asymmetric turbocharger for improved performance, friction-optimized pistons designed for better fuel economy, and a next-generation Amplified Common Rail Fuel System (ACRS™) for improved combustion control. Even the Fuel Filter Module was redesigned to have one less filter, and service change intervals are extended up to 100,000 miles.
The Detroit™ DT12™ Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) is available as an option on the Cascadia Evolution. The DT12 combines a traditional manual gearbox with a computer-controlled shift actuator and clutch. The best shift patterns are selected electronically to provide optimal power and fuel efficiency. The direct-drive and overdrive design improves durability, minimizing wear on drivetrain components. And it’s easier to operate, making it ideal for all levels of drivers.
Detroit offers 6x2 and 6x4 axles with ratios that improve fuel economy and put the power to the pavement. Our 6x2 axle configuration incorporates a non-driven tag axle on the tandem, reducing total weight (by 380 lbs.) and the number of moving parts.
While available separately, together these components maximize efficiency and performance. That’s because Detroit has designed, engineered and manufactured the DD15 engine, DT12 transmission and tandem axles to work together as one integrated Detroit™ Powertrain. No other powertrain does more to lower your Real Cost of Ownership.
