Designed to offer more freedom in the cab, Freightliner SmartShiftTM is a huge shift forward in automated mechanical transmission technology.
Mounted to the steering column, hands-on-the-wheel shifting offers drivers more room in the cab and minimises the fatigue that can build up over the course of the day when using a traditional gear-shift transmission.
Additional SmartShift™ advantages include:
- Easy to operate with the push or pull of a hand lever.
- More space in the cab because the floor-mounted or seat-mounted shift control is eliminated.
- Dash-mounted display.
- No need to remove hands from wheel to operate.
- Driver's eyes remain on the road which means less physical and mental driver fatigue.
- Automatic shifting feature is easily overridden.
