On the inside
Reducing driver fatigue is key to improving overall safety and the driver’s productivity. That’s why engineers at Freightliner designed the M2 112 for optimal operator visibility and comfort during a long workday. The M2 112 has also been designed for optimal operation in adverse conditions. The cab features a precise HVAC system that keeps temperatures constant and an insulation package that protects against noise and temperature extremes.
The comfortable, well-appointed aluminum cab includes an efficient dash and easy-to-reach automotive style gauges and switches. Driver comfort is paramount with plenty of head and elbow room, lower cab height with wider and taller doors, and low, non-slip steps for easy entry/exit. Standard tinted windshield glass helps prevent glare for a better view of the road.

With powertrains providing a broad range of horsepower and torque ratings, the Freightliner M2 112 is designed to meet even the most demanding jobs and produce measurable results.
Improved wall-to-wall and curb-to-curb maneuverability, especially within neighborhoods and an up to 55-degree wheel cut, a set-back front axle and a swept-back front fender and bumper provide one of the industry’s tightest turning radius.
A large, 2,500 square-inch tinted windshield and downward sloping aerodynamic hood provide a clear, wide-open view of the road and the work at hand, making it easier for the non-professional driver to see and drive.
