TT Archives: Freightliner's New Tractor

Click image to enlarge

In 1995 Freightliner introduced its Century Class tractor during the American Trucking Associations annual conference. The Century Class was the company’s first all-new heavy-duty line of trucks in more than two decades at the time and featured rounded contours to improve fuel economy and a Driver Message Center in the dash to display information.

The manufacturer’s newest technological advance, the self-driving truck, was introduced last week and received the first license in the United States for an autonomous-driving truck to operate on public highways.
