Freightliner Cascadia Evolution Trucks

Designed to be the most aerodynamic and fuel-efficient commercial truck on the road, the Cascadia Evolution saves you up to 7% in fuel usage compared to EPA 2010.

The Evolution of Efficiency

The Cascadia Evolution builds on the technologies of our previous on-highway truck models—engine efficiency, advanced aerodynamics, fleet management tools—to deliver up to a 7% increase in fuel economy over our first-generation EPA 2010-compliant Cascadia model

7% Increased Fuel Economy over EPA 2010

Freightliner engineers continuously explore new aerodynamic features and configurations to combat wind resistance. The Cascadia Evolution, an advanced on-highway truck, is equipped with the latest in aerodynamic technology, enabling fleets to increase fuel economy and save money.

DD15 Engine

The newly designed Detroit™ DD15® engine is engineered for enhanced performance and efficiency. This engine incorporates a variety of innovations that reduce fuel consumption while increasing power in on-highway trucks. And it’s available exclusively on the Cascadia Evolution. Comfort All Day and Night More room. Less noise. Happier drivers. Superior ride and handling, coupled with one of the widest and quietest cabs in the on-highway truck market, let drivers work hard and rest well.
