Visitors to the Freightliner Trucks booth at the 2018 Work Truck Show explored a wide breadth of truck models, as well as powertrain and connectivity solutions that meet the needs of vocational applications during the exhibit from March 7-9, 2018.
“All of our vocational and medium-duty products are designed for applications requiring reliable products,” said Kelly Gedert, director of product marketing for Freightliner and Detroit Components. “Whether we’re developing new powertrain technologies or working with bodybuilders to make the upfitting process as efficient as possible, our priority is to provide the right solutions for our customers’ applications.”
The Freightliner Trucks booth featured several vocational, medium-duty and alternative-fuel solutions including:

In addition to truck models, also on display in the Freightliner booth will be the Detroit DD5, Detroit DD8™ and Detroit DD13 engines. The DD8 was unveiled at last year’s Work Truck Show and recently started vehicle production, and the DD5 engine – Detroit’s first medium-duty offering – is chosen by one-third of customers when there is technical coverage for their application.
Detroit engines are built for power and efficiency. Along with ease of maintenance, they have the longest service intervals in their class. Included with the DD5, DD8 and DD13 engines is the Detroit Connect™ Virtual TechnicianSM remote diagnostics service. This feature allows fleet managers to make informed service decisions without compromising uptime.
