    Im just curious on what kind of trucks they use, I know they are automatics. What brand,motor etc and what does the interior look like does it have outlets to plug stuff in. The trucks we had in school the interior was gutted all to hell. Im just curious

    I don't know the exact specs on them, but I just drove last the Maverick yard in Arkansas and saw about 40 brand new Cascadias lined up parked in front.

    Freightliner Columbias w/60 series Detroits and Cascadias w/Detroit DD-15 power. Cascadias are replacing the Columbias. Cascadias have built in inverter and electric APU.

    The Coronado is the top of the Freightliner line. There are those out there that think only Kenworth or Peterbuilts are real trucks.
    My Columbia gets me to the same place they go and gets really good fuel mileage.
    You will learn that there are a lot of opinionated people in this industry and they can be rater rude and crude. You just have to filter it out!

    Because they are built in Mexico along with every other freightliner. Poor craftsmanship & they vibrate & rattle to a point that the truck starts to fall apart.

    The definitely do not have the fit and finish that the Pete's and KW's do, but I do not agree with you that they are junk.:biggrin_25513:
