Freightliner Trucks Announces Front Drive Axle Availability for Business Class M2 106 and 106V Models

August 23, 2005

PORTLAND, OR — Freightliner Trucks announced that factory-installed Meritor front drive axles, which allow for an all-wheel-drive (AWD) option, are now available for immediate delivery on Business Class M2 106 and 106V truck models. The front drive axle option is a part-time system ideal for use in fire and rescue, utility, snow plow, and municipal service applications. The system can be activated by the operator when AWD is needed during traction-poor conditions. The AWD option can be engaged at or below 10 mph or while the vehicle is coasting on a level grade. The front drive axles are available in a 4x4 or a 6x6 configuration on Business Class M2 106 or 106V truck models running MBE900 or Caterpillar C7 engines. Business Class M2 models are offered in day cab, extended cab, and crew cab configurations with a variety of front and rear seating options including SCBA, air-suspension, and storage seats.
