TROY, Mich. — The Meritor MXL driveline has been selected as standard equipment on new Freightliner and Western Star trucks, the company has announced.
The deal makes the Meritor MXL standard on all new Freightliner Cascadia, Coronado, Coronado SD and Western Star trucks with a production date after April 26.
ArvinMeritor says the MXL allows operators to reduce maintenance costs and enjoy a longer warranty. It features a 100,000-mile lubrication interval for U-joints and the slip section and a three-year, 350,000-mile linehaul warranty. The company says the extended lubrication intervals can provide a life-cycle savings of about $250 per truck.
