The Freightliner Cascadia is a heavy duty semi-trailer truck and the flagship model of Freightliner.
In 2017, the Cascadia received a major design revision for the 2018 model year. Members on Hank's Truck Forum have seen and posted pictures of the second-generation Cascadia. The general design of the body is the same except for revised chassis fairings and longer cab extenders. The 2018 Cascadia's hood cowl has a more sculpted design, and also carries the new, more aggressively styled, all LED headlights and a larger, bolder grille, as well as more aerodynamic hood mirrors. The front bumper is redesigned to match the new hood, and better bumper air dams were installed. Interior wise, the truck received a complete overhaul. An all new dashboard and all new seats both make the truck very driver-centric, and provide superior visibility. The Cascadia's sleeper contains a larger bunk, redesigned storage cabinets, new, aircraft inspired dimmable LED ceiling lights; standard in raised roof sleepers; and the available "Driver's Loft" feature, which adds a collapsible table and two collapsible seats, all of which stow neatly underneath an extra-wide Murphy-style bunk. If equipped with an upper bunk, the raised roof sleeper also includes a standard telescopic ladder for easier access to the top bunk. Other features of the truck include: the Detroit DT12 automated manual transmission, ultra quiet door and window seals, a single panel windshield, all LED marker lights and taillights, and a suite of active and passive safety systems, including blind spot monitoring, collision mitigation system, lane keeping assistance, and more. The 2018 Cascadia is available in the same three configurations as its predecessors, Day Cab, Mid-roof XT, and Raised Roof.
