The Latest from DTNA: New and Improved Medium-Duty Engines

Daimler Trucks North America took the opportunity on October 6 at the American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition to share their latest news on trucking innovations: a new safety system package, as well as Detroit-branded medium-duty engines. As the industry continues to experience steady growth, these latest additions from DTNA just go to show the reason behind improving sales and company success: they are innovations that take into account the needs of fleet owners and truck drivers alike to make for an overall more effective experience. Read on to find out more!

The Detroit Assurance Package

The new safety system announced by DTNA has been dubbed the “Detroit Assurance Package;” it offers a number of features that are designed to improve overall driving safety. The package includes a radar system to alert the driver about possible collisions, an adaptive cruise control option, as well as a camera system to monitor lane departures. This new system allows the driver to improve their performance, and it also improves the overall performance of the vehicle itself. So far, the Detroit Assurance Package is available in both the Freightliner Cascadia Evolution model and the Cascadia, along with the new medium-duty engines.

The new medium-duty engines, the DD5 and the DD8, will be offered starting in 2016. Not only are they designed for high-quality performance, but they are also considered to be eco-friendly engines; according to DTNA’s president, the engines will meet the regulations for greenhouse gas emissions projected to be in place for 2017.
