New Freightliner "EconicSD" Trash Truck
« on: April 25, 2018, 09:08:03 AM »
Freightliner's new Rig for the trashy side of trucking. ;D

I think it's very European in general appearance, and the interior looks pretty nice for a strictly vocational truck.
The windshield also seems extremely large, which is good for visibility, but will be very expensive if it ever needs to be replaced.

I knew I recognized the Econic Name... So Daimler Finally decided to bring the Mercedes Version over here, and rebadge it as a Freightliner  :o 8)

Saw that. So they are taking another stab at it eh? Remember the Condor?

Going to be a hard market to take from Mack and Autocar.

Paystar-Peterbilt is doing a pretty good job of taking market share away from Mack. Not that I like it.
