March 12, 2014

Freightliner Trucks announced new value-added option packages specifically geared toward its M2 106 medium-duty trucks, featuring Allison’s new FuelSense product paired with the Cummins ISB6.7.

The new packages include:

Efficiency Package—Designed to maximize efficiency for pick-up and delivery applications, this option package combines the new Allison FuelSense transmission programming with a DTNA-exclusive Cummins ISB6.7 engine rating of 220 hp and 600 ft-lb torque. Available in the M2 106, Freightliner Trucks is the first OEM to launch Allison FuelSense in the medium-duty truck market. FuelSense is a package of transmission programming that automatically adapts to engine duty cycles and specific working conditions, enhancing overall vehicle fuel efficiency. Results are optimized when FuelSense is paired with the Cummins ISB6.7 engine.

Freightliner has packaged this powertrain combination with additional fuel economy-enhancing options like low friction axle lube, an optimized drive axle ratio, and Michelin SmartWay tires.

Professional Image Package—Designed to extend the brand of a business, the professional image package focuses on the exterior of the cab. This package features a variety of chrome and bright finish options for the M2 106, including a chrome hood-mounted air intake grille; a hood-mounted chromed grille; a 14-inch round polished air horn; chrome headlight bezels; bright-finished heated and remote mirrors; and polished stainless steel steps.

Driver Retention Package—Combining popular interior features, the Driver Retention Package for the M2 106 will enhance driver comfort during long hours and tough working conditions. This package complements the M2 106’s standard fully automatic Allison transmission. Options include additional storage compartments; a wood grain dashboard and instrument panel; additional in-dash 12-volt power outlets; a high-back air suspension seat; dual driver seat armrests; and an adjustable tilt and telescoping steering column.
