The design is innovative, the build is uncompromising and the technology leaves everything else behind. The Freightliner EconicSD™ is a truck built for one purpose—to redefine the refuse category.
The EconicSD was designed to maximize productivity by ensuring safety and comfort. It has a panoramic windshield and low seating position to enhance driver visibility and is the first and only refuse truck in North America to offer Detroit Assurance® Suite of Safety Systems.
With its unique combination of ergonomics, versatility and technology, the EconicSD™ performs like no other commercial vehicle, delivering exceptional productivity day in and day out.
Take productivity to the next level. The EconicSD features a spacious, comfortable cabover interior with a modern, digital instrument cluster.
This refuse truck makes navigating through urban areas safer and less stressful with a short wheelbase and low cab design for enhanced stability.
The EconicSD is packed with practical features to help you get the job done, day in and day out. Features include:
Getting in and out of tight spots in urban and residential areas is essential for waste collection vehicles. That’s why the EconicSD is built with these features:
From the inside out, this vehicle was designed to bring innovative safety to waste collection. Detroit Assurance® Suite of Safety Systems comes standard on this truck, making the EconicSD the only COE refuse truck in North America that features a collision mitigation system. The panoramic visibility, LED headlights, and low step-in height add more features to help make waste collection routes safer. The EconicSD comes standard with:
Active Brake Assist
Mitigate potential collisions with stationary and traveling vehicles via automatic warning and partial or full braking.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Automatically adjusts cruising speed to maintain a safe, continuous following distance from vehicles in the lane ahead.
Lane Departure Warning
A feature that tracks the truck’s position and sounds a warning when an unintentional lane change is initiated.
Side Guard Assist
Monitors the truck’s passenger side for objects and alerts the driver with an audible and visual warning if they attempt to veer into an already populated lane.
Maximum uptime is essential. That's why the EconicSD is purpose-built to increase uptime with a durable cabover and convenient access to the engine and components. And it's why it features Detroit Connect, which helps simplify maintenance and keeps fleets moving.
Detroit Connect Virtual Technician® remote diagnostics service takes the guesswork out of diagnostics and helps fleet managers address critical fault events quickly.
The Detroit Connect Portal provides a clear view of fault trends across your fleet, so you can identify maintenance issues before they become critical.
The Detroit Connect Portal also gives fleet managers peace of mind by enabling them to view critical safety events in their trucks that have Detroit Assurance® and take action to increase the safety of trucks on the road.
