Well I just found out on Friday that I will be getting one of these new T680s with the gray bumpers and side fairings. 

Kinda bummed about it, I love the Cascadia daycab and she only has 105,000 miles on the clock.  But hey, getting a new truck isn't a bad thing.

Gabrielli KW is correct Ivory. Yeah the FedEx yard right up the road was my guess too. I wonder where the Newark Airport terminal gets their trucks from? ???

Better shot of the tandem tractor.

Keeping with FedEx I found some of these Freightliners at a place in Oakville that must do final delivery prep for tractors before going to the customer or end user.
The DOT number on the tractor door is for FedEx EXPRESS.
Memphis TN,
not FedEx Express Canada Mississauga ON
Last year I saw some single axle Freightliners at this shop for FedEx.

Not surprised they went with the short hood based on the frame length!

NEMF Peterbilt 579 twin-screw in the all maroon color scheme. Bumper is an unpainted dark gray.
Got one in the mirror today before it passed me up on I-95. A minute later we both got off the North East MD exit.........I was hoping he'd stop at the J but went straight to the NEMF terminal down the street.

Nice! I saw a Mack daycab in this livery, but with a small stripe going along the cab and hood. It looked to be an existing unit they repainted though.

Nice catches guys! My local KW dealer is prepping a few of those new R17 series FXF T680's as well. And those new NEMF Pete's are sharp. I'll be near the Mack plant next week, I'll see whats hanging around.  ;)
