Freightliner offers HVAC option

Freightliner Trucks is offering an option that makes it easy to be green- Class 8 models can now be spec'd with an aftermarket HVAC system and auxiliary generator installed at the factory to cut idling.

The 120-volt, 14,000 Btu HVAC system provided by Dometic Corp. are available for Freightliner Century Class S/T, Coronado, Columbia, Classic XL and Classic truck models.

"We offer the 'Idle Solutions' HVAC system on our heavy-duty vehicles because it positively impacts the trucking industry, truck drivers and the environment," said Mark Lampert, Freightliner senior vp-sales and marketing. "Idle Solutions allows drivers to remain comfortable in their cabs while reducing emissions and fuel consumption."
