PORTLAND, Ore — Freightliner Trucks is increasing production of its FLD SD Class 8 truck model.
Beginning in April of 2005, production numbers will increase substantially at the Truck Manufacturing Plant in Santiago, Mexico. The FLD SD is a severe-duty vehicle..
Built for a variety of severe-duty and construction applications, the FLD SD was introduced in 1990 and given a series of enhancements over the past two years. The enhanced FLD SD now includes an upgraded chassis that delivers marked improvements in maneuverability, quality of ride and noise reduction, the company claims.
Available in either a set-forward front axle or a set-back front axle configuration, the truck’s enhanced chassis has a wider-track front axle and high-pressure steering gears which give the tires more room to turn, increasing overall maneuverability.
