Freightliner will be rolling out two new options for its Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution models. The Bose Ride System II truck suspension and SmarTire Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) from Bendix CVS are currently in production.
Bose Ride is reported to have reduced fatigue and pain. Through sensors and an electromagnetic motor, the system counteracts shaking and jarring typical in trucks. Introduced earlier this year, Bose Ride allows drivers to customize their ride with the Ride Control selector.
With a dash display, TPMS allows drivers to check real-time status of pressure and temperature. This is made possible with a wheel-mounted sensor. A deviation value is captured to show if a tire is over- or under-inflated.
Those attending the Great American Trucking Show can obtain more information at Freightliner’s display at booth No. 12113. More information can also be found at FreightlinerTrucks.com.
