Freightliner is now offering factory-installed liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel tanks for the Cascadia® 113. This product offering joins the LNG and CNG offerings in the 114SD and the M2 112, which have been available as a factory installed option since 2009. 
 
Constructed of stainless steel, the factory-installed LNG tanks featured on the Cascadia 113 are available in a variety of configurations, with capacity up to 300 LNG gallons – 142 diesel gallon equivalent (DGE) – giving trucks an approximate range of 600 miles. Freightliner also offers factory-installed compressed natural gas (CNG) tank packages on the Cascadia 113, with capacities of up to 190 DGE.
 
Our new factory-installed LNG tank offerings give customers more choices in our already comprehensive selection of natural gas options. Overall, our complete portfolio of alternative fuel solutions continues to meet the mark by delivering on productivity and performance.
 
Freightliner’s commitment to green technologies is part of parent company Daimler AG’s global “Shaping Future Transportation” initiative. Launched in 2007, the initiative is focused on reducing criteria pollutants, carbon dioxide and fuel consumption through the utilization of clean, efficient drive systems including clean diesel and alternative fuels. Since 2008, owner-operators and fleet managers have bought over 3,000 of Freightliner’s natural gas trucks.

Freightliner is using the Cummins Westport engines for CNG and LNG applications. ISL-G (in M2-112 & 114SD) & ISX12-G (in Cascadia).

Where is Freightliner going to get an LNG engine? Is Detroit going to make one, because as far as I know, only Volvo has an LNG engine.

I think this is great. My partner carrier Paper Transport is heavy into CNG. This has opened doors to us with customers that want to be green. To me it helps keep diesel prices from rising, even more.
