Premium Deals: Aussie American


Daimler Trucks Laverton is offering a brand-new Freightliner Coronado 114 fitted with a tipper body that is ready to hit the work site right away.

This gleaming machine delivers American toughness in a configuration that suits Australian conditions and fits perfectly within local operating length laws.

The proven Freightliner Coronado range was first-introduced with the 122 model; the 122 refers to the bumper-to-back-of-cab (BBC) measurement in inches.

This does the job for a lot of operators who run longer, but many Australian customers needed something with a shorter nose to optimise productivity within our unique road regulations.

Freightliner listened and the US company gave the green light to develop a shorter 114 model just for Australia.

The 114 is powered by the tried and tested 15-litre Detroit DD15 six-cylinder engine that is much sought-after in Australia.

It is available with a range of horsepower ratings from 475hp through to 560hp. The engine fitted to this featured unit generates 500hp and 1,850lb-ft of torque.

Coronado customers can pick from manual or automated transmissions, but this one comes with the tough 18-speed Eaton manual.

It sits on 16k Daimler front axle and a Meritor rear axles (featuring Freightliner Airliner suspension at the back), with Dura-bright wheels and quality Michelin tyres.

Detroit is willing to back its venerable DD15 engine and issues a warranty that covers major components all the way through to 800,000km. Freightliner is also currently offering a four-year/800,000km extended warranty across Coronado 114 and Argosy models. Be sure to check the Freightliner website for the terms and conditions of both warranties.

The Coronado appeals to the heart as well as the head with its classic muscular American design and liberal use of chrome.

This tipper has been fitted out with plenty of additional shiny parts, including a chrome FUPS bumper, big chrome exhaust stacks and sun-visor. The end result is a rig that has real presence at the work site and on the road.

The truck has been installed with an AA Diesel Truck Bodies tipper body featuring wear-resistant Hardox steel and is ready to work.
