Cool Freightliner concept truck

Freightliner is trying out new design features with its Revolution concept truck at their booth. It was described as "kind of a daycab, kind of a raised roof sleeper." It's like a daycab, but a pulldown bunk converts it to a sleeper cab. What do you think of the design? The company's booth, which stresses historic innovation, includes many of its leading models with modernized version of retro graphics. Definitely worth checking out if you're at the show.
