Production of the Freightliner Cascadia with enhanced safety and aerodynamic solutions has begun, providing customers with a truck that is safer, more fuel efficient and offers a better driver experience than ever before. Detroit Assurance 5.0 is now standard with Freightliner Cascadias powered by Detroit engines. This proprietary radar and camera fused system features standard active safety and advanced driver assistance technologies designed to keep drivers, other motorists and pedestrians safe, including:

Adaptive Cruise Control to 0 MPH Automatically decelerates and accelerates to maintain a safe following distance. In stop-and-go-traffic, if the vehicle in front stops, the truck will also come to a stop and hold indefinitely. If the vehicle ahead moves in less than two seconds, the truck will resume moving at a safe following distance.

Active Brake Assist 5.0 – Full Braking on Moving Pedestrian When a moving pedestrian enters the truck’s path, Detroit Assurance 5.0 applies input from the radar and camera sensors to warn the driver using visual and audible warnings simultaneously with partial emergency braking. If the driver doesn’t act, full emergency braking brings the truck to a complete stop.

Additionally, new standard features with Detroit Assurance 5.0 include automatic wipers/headlamps, Intelligent High Beam, and traffic sign display.

Mr Kelly Gedert, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks and Detroit Components said that “Helping keep motorists and pedestrians safe is our top priority, and the advanced technologies and groundbreaking innovations of Detroit Assurance 5.0 can help mitigate collisions and reduce unplanned expenses and downtime for our customers. Detroit Assurance 5.0 illustrates our commitment to increasing safety for everyone on the road.”
