PORTLAND, Ore. –Freightliner has announced it’s expanding its popular ‘Slice of Life’ program, which allows people to follow three professional drivers online as they traverse the US with Detroit Diesel DD15-equipped Freightliner Cascadia’s.
However, as the program moves forward, the three drivers -Dick McCorkle, Henry Albert and Kurt Grote -will be behind the wheels of Freightliner trucks with EPA2010-compliant engines using selective catalytic reduction (SCR).
“Given the positive response we’ve received so far, we decided to extend the program and introduce the drivers to BlueTec emissions technology by giving them three new Cascadia trucks to test drive with DD15’s with BlueTec technology,” said Jamie Heck, owner/operator product marketing manager for Freightliner Trucks.
“As Kurt, Henry and Dick continue to cross North America, we will be eager to read their blogs and hear their reports detailing their experiences and the performance of these new products.”
The three drivers that take part in the program blog about their travels on the program’s Web site: www.SliceofTruckerLife.comand also share better business practices. They drivers also attend popular truck shows, including the Mid-America Trucking Show (March 25-27 in Louisville).
