    I bought one recently with a manual and their new A26 motor, among other custom specs. I am very pleased with it so far. An earlier post said it is a Maxxforce 13l and that is not correct. It was Maxxforce - N13 - and now A26. The A26 is nothing like either of the previous motors, it is totally new from the block up. Take it from someone that owns one, I am very happy with it
    You can get an Eaton 12spd AMT with the X15, they call it the Eaton Endurant transmission. Paccar did the same thing recently in partnership with Eaton, same transmission, different software, can't remember what they call that one.

    Had the speed upgraded today. 65 on the pedal, 72 on cruise. Ten minute job, $350.00.

    No it is my company’s truck. They paid the tab.

    Well I am now in one of our loaner cascadias. Was leaving our Pomona Yard on Wednesday and the check engine light came on and it sounds like the pistons are swapping cylinders. I just went over 23,000 miles and it’s already dead. Was towed to West Trux yesterday. We shall see.

    New Volvo’s coming in soon. I’m tempted.....

    If they have the auto's...avoid them. We have a combo of Swedish Dogs (a mix of Volvo and Macks) and even the IDrive on the Volvo's are junk. Both are schizophrenic.

    Well it looks like my new LT is now going to be my old LT. Two bad injectors and assorted parts and some of which are on back order so I will be moving into one of our new Volvos next week. Which is fine by me, this 2013 Cascadia loaner I have is beating me to death! I had forgotten how bad they rode.....will update next week. Happy New Year to all!!!

    So, they just put a redesigned body and renamed it...but it's the same old International quality underneath. Couldn't pay me enough to ever drive a 10-wheel manure spreader again.
     
    Bumper Thanks this.

    Well my new Volvo is gone too. On to someone else higher on the seniority list than me. However I have a plane ticket on my iPhone to Las Vegas for tomorrow morning. Flying from Ontario Calif to Las Vegas Freightliner to pick up my new 2018 Cascadia Evolution and drive it home. I have no information on the truck other than it is white and truck number 440. This all came about in the past few hours.

    Here I go again..

    You're just hard on trucks,lol. You definitely have bad luck with trucks lately. Darn DEF and electrical seems to be the going thing on these new trucks these days.
     
    Bumper Thanks this.
