The Slice of Life blog, in which three truckers describe their experiences driving the Cascadia, has been extended, Freightliner Trucks announced. The fleet says the program will stay because of its popularity and the drivers’ positive response to it.
For the last year, Overdrive 2007 Trucker of the Year Henry Albert, Dick McCorkle and Kurt Grote have described their responses to drive the Cascadias equipped with a Detroit Diesel DD15 and newly added selective catalytic reduction emissions technology.
