Used Freightliner Trucks


Visitors: 229

With safety as its focus, Freightliner trucks are built to handle the rigors of rough driving, heavy hauling, and years of use. The company is always coming up with new and innovative ways to incorporate safety into its already performance-savvy design.

For example, the Freightliner Cascadia includes a steering wheel that lets truckers keep their eyes on the road while still operating the features of their cabs. The wheel is covered in switches including cruise control, marker light interrupter, engine break on/off switch, and message center switch. Because the switches truckers need to control their drive are located right on the steering wheel, drivers are less likely to take their eyes off the road.

Freightliner's commitment to safety doesn't end with innovation, however. The company has also proven itself to be committed to the safety of its drivers even when that safety requires an admission of wrong. The 2008 recall of some freightliner trucks because of minor safety issues exemplifies this point.

For truckers who want a safe and powerful ride, Freightliner is an unparalleled choice, but truckers do not have to shell out big bucks for a new Freightliner. Instead, used Freightliner vehicles can be purchased on a variety of Internet classified web sites. With the same commitment to safety, but a lower overhead cost, used Freightliners are both physically and economically safe options for truckers. Not only will truckers pay less, but they will also have a chance to learn about the truck's history and performance, in addition to convenience of avoiding dealers. Purchasing a used Freightliner truck online, therefore, is an excellent option for the intelligent trucker.
