The Cascadia® is the most advanced on-highway truck Freightliner has ever offered; and today we are excited to announce its arrival in American Truck Simulator. Available to purchase from your local in-game dealership, the Freightliner comes with numerous customisation options.
Its virtual implementation in our game also includes a wide array of configurations including 12 chassis variants, 14 engine choices, 13 transmissions, 4 different cabin types, 4 interior trim options, and loads of other customization options. Whatever journey you have in mind, there will be a Cascadia® ready for the job! As a bonus, we are also including a unique paintjob as seen on Freightliner’s promotional videos. This is available for the ownable 53′ box trailers.
Bringing this iconic truck to the virtual roads of American Truck Simulator wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the team at Freightliner Trucks, who has helped us recreate the Cascadia® in great detail. A big thank you, of course, goes to all those involved in this project here at SCS Software, from the very first contact to creating the 3D models, interiors, texturing, bug testing, and more, it wouldn’t be possible without you!
We were also provided with the opportunity to rent an imported Freightliner Cascadia® and record the needed sounds for a day. You can watch a video of our recording session here! The generosity and collaboration of all companies involved have allowed this project to progress to where it is today.
The Freightliner Cascadia® arrives as a free DLC add-on for every owner of the American Truck Simulator. Find the latest update on your Steam Client (which may require a restart for some users) to receive this new addition to your library.
Be sure to share your first journey on the virtual roads with Freightliner Trucks (Twitter, Instagram) and us (Twitter, Instagram) using the hashtag #MyCascadia. We can’t wait for you take a drive of for yourself.
