Freightliner Trucks recently announced that the Cascadia has been designated as SmartWay-certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Cascadia marks the third Freightliner Class 8 truck – along with the Columbia and Century Class S/T – to earn this certification.
According to Freightliner…
SmartWay is a voluntary program for the transportation industry that establishes incentives for fuel efficiency improvements and greenhouse gas emissions reductions. Trucks that earn the SmartWay designation can be 10 to 20 percent more fuel efficient and up to 90 percent cleaner than comparable models.
“Freightliner’s Run Smart philosophy – the platform on which we developed the Cascadia – is to be the most productive, efficient, and driveable truck on the market,” said Melissa Kellogg, director of product marketing for FreighTrucks. “Run Smart perfectly complements the SmartWay initiative.”
