Freightliner adds new options for 122SD

DALLAS, Texas — Revealed today at the Great American Trucking Show, the Freightliner 122SD can now to spec’d with Allison 4700 Rugged Duty Series (RDS) and Oil Field Series (OFS) automatic transmissions.

Freightliner said the combination of the 122SD with Allison’s vocational transmissions is ideal for tough off-road and oil field applications. The transmission has features such as second reverse, which offers a second “deep reverse” in addition to the standard reverse. It also has automatic shifts, which automatically and smoothly make the right shift at the right time; and greater startability, which uses less torque to launch and go.

“Our severe-duty customers have demanding jobs that require powerful, heavy-duty solutions that won’t compromise productivity,” said Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “Allison’s specialized transmissions meet those exacting requirements and, when paired with the 122SD, provide a smart solution for extreme jobs.”

You can check out the 122SD at the Freightliner booth (#12113) at the Great American Trucking Show (GATS) in Dallas today through Saturday Aug. 29.
