The alignment with Allison Transmission, a world leader in medium- and heavy-duty commercial transmissions, continues Freightliner™s on-going product improvement initiative and is an example of brand™s vision and commitment to expanding its coverage of the vocational market.
By concentrating the company™s technical and marketing resources on more a focused vocational model line-up, Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) expects to drive further innovation in safety, environmental impact and user productivity across all segments, said Chris Patterson, President and CEO of Daimler Trucks North America.
Freightliner covers a myriad of vocational applications and has earned a respected name in vocational markets through continual investment and dedication to building the trucks that customers want based upon knowing the unique demands under which they operate, said Melissa Clausen, Director Product Marketing Freightliner Trucks. Equipping our trucks, with the new LBSS transmission feature will serve our customers in a broad variety of vocational applications.
The Business Class M2 offers maximum option versatility and covers a wide range of vocational applications common to GVW Classes 5-8, and supports a wide range of bodies and chassis mounted equipment including complex utility bodies, refuse applications and very customized fire and emergency trucks.
