Fuel Efficiency

Cascadia boasts class leading economy, engineered from the ground up to slice through the air

Detroit seamlessly integrates its engine, transmission and axle technology to assist with maximising fuel efficiency. The Integrated Detroit Powertrain (IDP) combines with Cascadia’s aerodynamic features to produce the next generation of Freightliner fuel efficiency.

Featuring Daimler’s Detroit® DD13® and DD16® engines to deliver optimum horsepower and torque at lower RPMs, our engineers have taken Detroit’s history of performance and advanced electronics to keep your truck in top gear longer and cruising at a more efficient engine speed.

The Detroit® DT12™ Automated Manual Transmission comes standard with the new Intelligent Powertrain Management System (IPM6). The additional features of IPM6 work seamlessly to assist with optimising vehicle performance.
