The Cascadia is the newest truck developed by Freightliner and features a host of new technologies which make it better suited for the long haul operations. The main advantage of the Freightliner is its small weight, achieved thanks to the heavy use of lightweight aluminum parts for the cabin. The rig also incorporates a new, common Electric/Electronic Architecture, and a host of features and systems designed to be easily accessible, repairable, and replaceable. However, despite all these features many truckers have complained about the reliability of its electronic systems such as cruise controls, lights, wiper or others and the Freightliner trucks have hard times convincing drivers about its reliability.
