The Freightliner M2 106

Ready to Take on Any Job

The M2 106 is the truck of choice for a variety of applications — from pickup and delivery to utility to towing. It offers exceptional flexibility, efficiency and maneuverability.

Designed for Business

The Business Class® M2 106 is designed with your overall business in mind. First, it’s powered by a Cummins ISB or ISC engine to deliver the strength and performance you need to maximize productivity. The ISB engine is the lightest engine in its class, and the Cummins ISC has the largest power/torque ratings in the medium duty market. And the steel-reinforced aluminum cab makes the M2 106 durable and safe.

You can further configure the M2 106 to your specification. It’s available with manual and automated-manual transmissions from Eaton Fuller, automatic transmissions from Allison, or with the proprietary Freightliner AMT3 automated-manual transmission. And, for those wanting to go green and save some green, the M2 106 also is available with the Eaton parallel electric hybrid system.

Excellent Efficiency

Freightliner has embraced proven selective catalytic reduction (SCR) emissions technology for EPA 2010 and beyond. Requiring fewer changes under the hood, the aftertreatment system design means less stress on the engine, fewer active regenerations and improved fuel economy. This translates to less downtime and more profit.

Made to Maneuver

Finally, the M2 106 performs well in tight spots and on tricky routes. It’s very agile, featuring a wheel cut up to 55-degrees, a set-back front axle and a swept-back bumper. It also offers excellent driver visibility for spotting potential hazards, with a 2,500 square-inch windshield, aerodynamic sloped hood and low-profile dash.

Works All Day without Quitting

Whether it’s collecting garbage or delivering beverages, your truck needs to make it through the day, every day. That’s why so many businesses choose the M2 106.


Tough to Beat

The Business Class® M2 106 has an aerodynamic steel-reinforced aluminum cab, making it strong, lightweight and rust resistant. And it’s been thoroughly tested to handle a variety of jobs.

Easy to Service

The M2 106 is designed for easy maintenance, keeping downtime to a minimum. Easily accessible transmission and other components, as well as see-through fluid reservoirs, make inspection and service hassle free.

Easy to Customize

Integrating the chassis with whatever specialty body you need is vital to reliable operation. The M2 106 offers clear frame rails back-of-cab, multiple exhaust options and our proprietary SmartPlex Electrical System. This multiplex wiring system simplifies chassis-to-body electrical integration and significantly reduces the number of wires. SmartPlex adds expansion capabilities and allows custom programming for each customer’s unique requirements, with no software to buy or additional tools required. Moreover, our ServiceLink diagnostic tools make maintenance and repairs quick and easy.

A Great Place to Work

Designed with a spacious, ergonomic interior, and a variety of other smart features, the M2 106 keeps drivers comfortable so they stay productive all day long.

Cab of Comfort

Every aspect of the cab was designed to make the driver’s job less of a job, leading to increased productivity. For starters, it has a low step-in height with slip-resistant dual steps, a large door opening and strategically placed exterior and interior grab handles. These types of details enhance safety and help reduce driver fatigue. The M2 106 also offers a spacious cab with flexible seating options, so you can configure your trucks for specific applications.

The ergonomically designed driver’s area features an automotive style dashboard, easy-to-read LED-backlit gauges and controls that are within easy reach. An advanced heating and air conditioning system provides excellent air flow for uniform temperature control throughout the cab, and extensive interior insulation reduces noise and provides protection against the elements.

Plenty of Work Space

Sometimes a driver has work to do inside the truck, too — like scheduling, billing and other paperwork. The Business Class M2 106 offers plenty of storage space. Items can be placed in the overhead console or in an optional, floor-mounted compartment that features a writing surface, printer provision and 12-volt power outlet.

Ease and Ergonomics

Operation of the M2 106 also is made easy by Freightliner’s proprietary SmartPlex Electrical System, which allows placement of switches in the most convenient locations. Then, when you add our best-in-class visibility plus optional mirror configurations, your drivers should feel less stress and more control.
