Freightliner’s Gary Wheatly demonstrates how to raise and lower the cabin of a Freightliner Argosy in this short walk-around tour of their cabover flagship.
Freightliner claims their New Generation Argosy is the only COE truck in Australia that gives you the complete package. The choice of either Detroit Diesel DD15, DD16 or Cummins ISX and Signature power plants, a massive 1,650 square inches of cooling to deliver more capacity and efficiency, eRail technology which increases the durability by cleverly keeping electrical harnesses away from critical engine components, the safety of swing-out steps and the comfort of a truly spacious cabin which ensures you can stay more productive for longer. Of course, safety is always a priority. Built from heavy-duty aluminium with a semi-monocoque safety cell design, Argosy’s cabins are lightweight but strong, easily achieving the strict European eCe-r29 safety standard. With up to 6’7″ of headroom and a completely flat floor, the Argosy’s cabins are truly walk-through, and once you sit down the new Ezyrider-II air suspended seats offer comfort and lumbar support across an array of positions.
