Jan 1, 2013 12:00 PM
Freightliner Trucks is now offering a customer demonstrator program for its all new Freightliner Cascadia 113 natural gas day cab. Five customer demonstrator tractors will be available in the United States and Canada to provide customers direct experience with this alternative fuel product.
Equipped with the new Cummins Westport ISX12 G heavy-duty natural gas engine, the Allison 4000HS transmission, and 115 diesel gallon equivalent compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel tanks, the Cascadia 113 natural gas tractor is ideal for regional haul and less-than-truckload applications.
The 12-liter ISX12 G natural gas engine is based on the Cummins ISX12 diesel heavy-duty engine platform and will operate on either CNG or liquefied natural gas (LNG). It features ratings of 400 hp and 1,450 lb-ft torque, optional engine brake, and manual and automatic transmission capability.
Full production on the Cascadia 113 natural gas begins in third quarter 2013. To learn more about this demonstrator program, go to www.freightlinertrucks.com.
