About time they started getting new tractors.

That's a KW T-300 Hunt, they've been around for a little while. I'm not sure if they invested in more new city tractors since the merger.

Here's a new VNL for FedEx Freight.


 

I also caught the same USF ProStar Charlie did a few weeks ago.

The gray parts on the fairings and bumper of that Freight truck make it stand out a bit. I like it! A shame we can't see the numbers.

Maybe I was seeing things but I could have sworn I saw an R&L Carriers T660 pulling doubles. I see a lot of their equipment as they have terminals and an HQ in OH but this was a surprise. Never knew they had anything PACCAR.

Saw 3 UPS Freight Cascadias being delivered driving along I-84 in Oregon adn Idaho.  They appeared to have the short hood instead of the long hood.  Maybe to keep them short enough to pull triples in Oregon?

I really hope to see one of those!

I hope Dave doesn't mind if I post this. He caught this as it was being delivered. His UPS Freight page has a few photos of a Freightliner too.

Personally I like these a little more than the new Freight Volvos. The tank skirts that stop at the end of the cab on those look ridiculous to me.

Now that is sharp! :o

I noticed the one on his page on the main site is a CA125, where this is a CA113. I personally like the CA113s better.
