PORTLAND, Ore. — Freightliner has announced its Coronado heavy-duty truck is now available with two new horsepower ratings.
The Coronado can now be spec’d with a Caterpillar C15 engine with either 600 h.p. and 1,850 lb-ft torque or 625 h.p. and 2,050 lb-ft torque.
“These higher-horsepower ratings from Caterpillar offer our customers more power to get the job done,” said Mark Lampert, senior vice-president, sales and marketing, Freightliner Trucks. “It’s a great component option for our Coronado, a favourite among North American owner-operators for its ability to handle the toughest jobs and heaviest loads with superior ride and handling, unique styling and outstanding customer support.”
The Coronado’s 1,500 sq. in. radiator provides ample cooling capability for the higher horsepower engines, the company insists. The Coronado also offers improved aerodynamics and fuel efficiency thanks in part to its sloped, curved windshield.
The Cat C15 features a unique camshaft, piston and injectors with the next generation Cat electronic control module. It’s compliant with 2004 emissions standards using ACERT technology.
The Coronado is also available with a Detroit Diesel Series 60 engine with up to 550 h.p.
