Vehicle in the news
Make/Model: 114 SD
Manufacturer: Freightliner Trucks
The new 114SD set-back axle line is designed for severe duty segments such as construction, dump truck, refuse, and sewer vacuum applications. The trucks are heavy-duty SBA trucks that incorporate the Allison 3000RDS transmission for improved start-ability at vehicle launch in extreme conditions (such as on a grade, in deep mud, etc).
The trucks are now available for pre-purchase/order with a Cummins ISLG natural gas engine from the factory. Delivery of the NG trucks begins in December.
And so ...
The heavy trucking and medium-duty sectors are prime markets for both natural gas and electrification options.
