March 17, 2015 – Freightliner Trucks showcased several new options for its rugged 122SD truck at the 2015 Work Truck Show in Indianapolis earlier this month.
The 122SD is “ideal for heavy, oversized loads, and can be configured for a variety of severe duty options, including oil/gas field services, concrete mixing, specialty/heavy-haul, crane, dump and towing/recovery,” said the company.
The new options for the 122SD are best suited for severe terrain and off-road applications. They include oil pan skid plates, 12-in. frame rails, threaded front suspension spring pins and bushing, and heavy-duty bolted cross-members. Front-bumper mud flaps and fog lights with rock guards are now also available as factory-installed options.
With a GVWR of up to 92,000 pounds and a GCWR of up to 160,000 pounds, the 122SD is available with manual and automated manual transmission options as well as engine options with ratings up to 600 hp and 2050 lbs/ft of torque.
