Freightliner’s New Coronado Severe Duty


Freightliner Trucks introduced the new Coronado® Severe Duty (SD) at the International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE). Developed specifically for vocational applications, the Coronado SD features rugged, traditional styling with performance-enhancing new features that will positively impact the bottom line by maximizing the vehicle uptime.

Available in both set-back and set-forward axle configurations, the Coronado SD improves upon the durability and dependability of Freightliner’s already tough FLD SD with the driver comfort and style synonymous with the Coronado, while adding new elements specifically engineered for the vocational market.

The Coronado SD’s fiberglass hood has been designed for maximum durability. The fenders come standard with impact absorbing material that helps eliminate damage and cracks common with vocational applications. The one-piece stainless steel grille surround is accented with chrome steel horizontal bars. Further enhancing the truck’s performance, the Coronado SD’s new headlights feature single, high-tech reflectors for excellent lighting capability both forward and to the side.

The Coronado SD’s cab is also equipped with updated doors. The outer door frame and belt rail are made from aluminum and combined with a steel inner reinforcement, resulting in a lightweight, sturdy design that provides excellent door sealing and less mirror vibration.

With its lightweight, high-strength construction, customers can increase revenue by hauling more aggregate or pulling larger payloads. An up to 50° wheel cut helps the Coronado SD easily maneuver in tight situations.

Available with the Detroit Diesel® DD13™, DD15™, and DD16™ engines, as well as the Cummins® ISX, the Coronado SD is designed to meet the upcoming EPA 2010 standards.
