Freightliner Cascadia now available with Detroit DT12 AMT

Updated Feb 10, 2014

Daimler Trucks North America says the Detroit DT12 Automated Manual transmission is now available in Detroit DD16-equipped Freightliner Cascadia sleeper and day cabs. This

pairing is ideally suited for heavier weight applications and now allows the DT12 to cover all horsepower and torque ratings available from Detroit engines.

All DT12 transmissions mated to DD16 engines will also have a dual plate clutch to channel the big-bore power of this workhorse engine.

These DT12 ratings will only be available with overdrive gearing, however you will still get the same great features such as Creep Mode for low-speed

maneuverability, eCoast for efficient cruising, and Skip Shift for smooth acceleration.

The DT12-DD16 pairing in the Freightliner Cascadia is now available to order.
