LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Freightliner’s  2014 Cascadia Evolution, which boasts of a 7% improvement in fuel economy over the company’s EPA 2010-compliant Cascadia, has already hit the 10,000 order mark.

The truck, powered by Detroit, was introduced just last year, and is now in full production. It can be equipped with a fully integrated Detroit powertrain that includes the Detroit DT12 automated manual transmission. The DT12 transmission complements the Detroit engines and axles with features that boost the vehicle’s overall efficiency and performance, according to the company.

Daimler general manager David Hames said the strong order numbers for Evolution shows North American fleets are opting for fuel efficiency.

“That (kind of fuel efficiency) is big dollars for a fleet running hundreds of trucks. This is a business-changer,” Hames said.
