Freightliner Trucks has announced the availability of the Cummins ISX Series engine as an option for the Freightliner Cascadia.
The Cascadia model is manufactured at Freightliner plants in Cleveland and Saltillo, Mexico.
The Portland, Ore.-based company said when the Cummins ISX engine is paired with the Cascadia, the combination adds to the vehicle’s overall power and fuel efficiency.
“The impressive Cummins ISX enhances the Cascadia’s performance, making it a natural fit into our overall engine line-up,” said Melissa Clausen, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “By offering our customers a full range of engine options, we are providing unmatched value and service.”
The Cummins ISX joins Detroit Diesel’s DD13, DD15, Series 60 and MBE 4000 engines as options for the Cascadia. Combined, Cummins and Freightliner have more than 700 distributors and service points across North America.
