Freightliner Trucks has started full production on its 122SD, which is designed to handle the toughest  ocational applications.

 The 122SD is on display at the Freightliner Trucks booth (#12113) at the Great American Truck Show.

The flagship of the Freightliner severe-duty line of vocational trucks, the 122SD has a GVWR of up to 92,000 pounds and a GCWR of up to 160,000 pounds, and is ideal for heavy/oversize hauling, logging, oil/gas field service, crane, dump, towing/recovery and vocational on-highway applications.

The 122SD is available with the Detroit DD15 TC, Detroit DD13 engines, providing the right amount of torque and horsepower for many heavy-duty applications. For the most demanding jobs, the 122SD is also available with the Detroit DD16 and Cummins ISX15 engines with up to 600 hp and 2050 lb-ft of torque.

Transmission options include Allison automatic, Eaton manual and Eaton UltraShift PLUS automated with Eaton Cobra shifter, designed for a full range of vocational needs.

“The 122SD is the most powerful vocational truck we have in our line-up,” said Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “Every inch of the 122SD is geared to give our customers extreme performance combined with efficiency and reliability for the lowest total cost of ownership.”

The 122SD has standard and optional enhancements that contribute to uptime and dependability, such as a durable, non-corrosive aluminum cab reinforced with e-coated steel, severe-duty front cab mounts, and hood durability enhancements for severe-duty environments. Models equipped with Detroit engines include Detroit Virtual Technician to help users track real-time maintenance notifications and schedule service remotely for improved operational efficiency.

Additional, exterior options include heavy-duty West Coast mirrors, LED headlights, one-piece skid plate, lower radiator rock guard, and custom chrome accents.  For more information, go to
