Freightliner unveiled a factory-reconfigured Century Class daycab reconfigured from a Century Class sleeper cab. The roof has been raised almost 9 inches over a typical cab height making it easier to move in and around the cab.
The cab also is about 10 inches longer than a typical cab, providing more than 9.5 inches of additional space behind the seats for storage. There also is more seat travel, giving the driver up to two inches more belly room and allowing for the seat back to be reclined further. A large 20-inch by 36-inch tinted rear window maximizes rear visibility. The daycab will be available through SelecTrucks Centers and Freightliner dealer locations
Separately, the company has announced that it will resume production of the traditionally styled Coronado in June. Aimed at the owner-operator market, the 132-inch-BBC Coronado features a set-forward front axle, dual cab-mounted stacks and bolt-on fenders. It is available with Detroit Diesel and Caterpillar engines with up to 600 horsepower, and comes in 70-inch raised roof and 70-inch mid-roof XT sleeper configurations. A day cab version is also available.
Freightliner introduced the Coronado in late 2000 but pulled it when the market for truck sales collapsed.
