Freightliner makes LED headlights standard

Truck News

NAPA, Calif. — Freightliner has announced LED headlamps are now standard on its Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution models.

The company is the first manufacturer to go standard with the lights, which provide greater nighttime visibility and longer life.

Freightliner will be using the Truck-Lite designs, which produce a beam pattern that reduces eye-strain for drivers while minimizing harsh headlight glare to oncoming traffic. The lights are also proven to reduce the draw on the truck’s electrical system while lasting 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

Freightliner said it tested the lights in a variety of extreme weather conditions.

“We want every component on our products to not only be cost-efficient, but to enhance vehicle safety and productivity,” said Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “The Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution are industry leaders in safety, driving experience and lowest total cost of ownership, and LED headlamps further enhance the products.”
