Freightliner Cascadia Evolution is an Economical Choice

Cascadia Evolution

The Freightliner Cascadia Evolution was designed for fuel economy.

The Freightliner Cascadia Evolution improves Freightliner’s highway truck technology by introducing aerodynamics, increased fuel efficiency, and fleet management tools that make the Cascadia Evolution stand above the rest. Compared to the first generation EPA 2010-compliant Cascadia model, the newest Cascadia model offers a 7% increase in fuel economy. Read on to learn more about the Freightliner Cascadia Evolution.

Aerodynamics

Crosswinds make driving difficult and decrease fuel economy. The Cascadia Evolution combats this common problem with an innovative aerodynamic design. Freightliner put their Cascadia Evolution to the test in their state-of-the-art wind tunnel to locate key areas that can be improved for more aerodynamics and efficiency. The result is a truck that has every gap meticulously sealed to help the truck cut through crosswinds. Custom side extenders and chassis fairings streamline the design of the truck to further help it direct airflow above and around the cab. Enhancements to the cooling system guides air for increased cooling efficiency and decreased underhood drag. All these elements combined create an intelligently-designed truck that naturally has less wind resistance and better fuel economy.

Under the Hood

The DD15 engine has been refined for increased fuel efficiency and performance. Among other improvements, the pistons have been optimized to create less friction, which reduces contact pressure associated with the oil control ring. Not only does this enhance fuel efficiency, it improves the durability of the engine. A next-generation Amplified Common Rail Fuel System (ACRS) has higher injector pressure for more finely-tuned combustion control. A patented asymmetric turbocharger also works to increase performance while decreasing mechanical complexity. The final result is a DD15 engine that is more efficient and 100 pounds lighter.
