Freightliner Trucks has Body Builders’ Needs in Mind

PORTLAND, ORE. – JUNE 20, 2007 – Freightliner Trucks today announced that its Business Class® M2™ Body Builder Resource CD is now available for download on www.M2BodyBuilder.com.



Body builders, upfitters and dealers can now visit www.M2BodyBuilder.com to download pertinent chassis and electrical information they need to work on the Freightliner Business Class M2 family of trucks. While Freightliner previously mailed the CD to those who requested it, all of the information is now available online for download eliminating the need for a constant Internet connection. The Web site serves as a valuable tool to determine dimensions for body and chassis, as well as a site to garner electrical information.



“By putting electrical and chassis information in the same location online, our customers don’t have to look in different places anymore to find the information they need, said Tanya Appuhn, medium duty product manager for Freightliner Trucks. “Freightliner Trucks continuously works on finding innovative ways to provide body builder information about the M2 family to those who need it. We strived to make this resource more user-friendly and adaptable to our customers’ needs.”



Chassis and electrical information for the M2 106, 106V, 112, and 112V will now be updated on an ongoing basis and be available online. Freightliner websites, such as www.FreightlinerTrucks.com, are providing links to the M2BodyBuilder.com location.



The Business Class M2 is Freightliner Truck’s medium-duty vocational truck with some applications reaching into the heavy-duty segments as well. The M2 106 serves vocations such as distribution and services, utility, refuse, and emergency vehicles. The M2 112 is the truck for heavier applications, such as construction, agriculture, lumber and snow plowing.



Freightliner Trucks is a division of Freightliner LLC, headquartered in Portland, Oregon, and is the leading heavy-duty truck manufacturer in North America. Freightliner LLC produces and markets Class 3-8 trucks and is a company of DaimlerChrysler, the world's leading commercial vehicle manufacturer.
