A great truck has to have great power. That's why the Freightliner engine in the New
Generation Argosy comes with a choice of engines from two of North
America's best engine manufacturers. It's power you can trust.
The Detroit Diesel DD15 is an all new ground-breaking engine which provides up to 560 hp and 1850
lb-ft of torque, while the legendary Cummins iSX & Signature engines are available
with up to 600 hp and torque of up to 2050 lb-ft.
Lots of power. Bigger loads. Easier driving. And all are fully ADR80/03
compliant. To get all that power onto the road, the Argosy offers Eaton's new
UltraShift automated transmission with electric clutch actuation and intelligent
shift selection software which helps perfect launch and shift decisions.
A hill Start aid prevents rollbacks to make life easier and safer for even the
most inexperienced drivers.
Freightliner cooling - beyond cool
Freightliner's engineers have left nothing to chance, giving the New Generation
Argosy a truly exceptional cooling package.
Big, effective and robust, it can handle anything so this truck will keep
working and keep earning. It starts with the massive engine/chassis-mounted,
1650 sq2 high-efficiency single aluminium radiator - Argosy's most efficient
ever - but it goes much further.
A specially designed 11 blade fan, a more efficient charge air cooler, a new air
conditioner condenser and a large capacity header tank all add to the Argosy's
ncredible ability to keep itself cool.
They've even adjusted the cabin height and designed a new front firewall to
optimise air flow past the engine bay, to give the engine the coolest possible
working environment. With plenty of reserve capacity to handle bull bars and
more, the Freightliner Argosy's unbeatable cooling package has proved itself in
the world's hottest deserts.
This truck will stay cool - and so will you. They've redesigned the electrical
architecture in the New Generation Argosy - minimising circuitry wear and tear
to keep your truck out of the maintenance yard. Everything has been addressed,
from the batteries through to the high speed diagnosis connections. All high
current power cables are routed in conduit from start to finish and
Freightliner's latest erail technology has allowed us to move cabling away from
the crowded engine bay to further protect the wiring looms.
A new centralised PowerNet Distribution Box manages all electrical requirements
between chassis and cabin for vastly minimising circuitry wear and tear. From
the batteries housed in a temperature sealed carrier, through the leece Neville
brushless 185 amp alternator, to the latest technology headlights, the New
Freightliner Argosy is wired for life.
At Freightliner, they hate downtime as much as you do, so they've designed
durability and ease of maintenance into every aspect of the New generation
Argosy. The giant grille tilts up to 120 degrees so drivers can easily access
daily check points. The cab itself tilts through 75 degrees thanks to an
effortless 'Electrical Over Hydraulic' tilt function. With complete access to
the engine, jobs that could take hours, now only take minutes.
Coming as standard on the Argosy, Meritor's Permalube drivelines are maintenance
free and their large, high capacity front axle wheel bearings are designed to
keep you on the road longer.
Of course, with a Freightliner you also benefit from having 45 specialist
service and parts authorised dealers right across Australia.
Passing every test
Built not just to survive, the New Generation Argosy has been tested like no
other to ensure it will thrive no matter what you throw at it. Configured as a
fully loaded B-double or road train, the argosy has cruised through dynamic
testing in temperatures averaging 46 degrees, repeatedly driving up 7 percent
gradients nearly 30 kilometers long. It has been subjected to endurance tests of
more than 2.5 million kilometres of on-road testing and passed aggressive cab
shaker tests at Freightliner's research and development facilities.
Full scale wind tunnel tests have also made the argosy very "slippery". The 24
degree windscreen deflects air upward and through the argosy's open visor'
minimising turbulence and cutting running costs. And, with a light overall tare
weight allowing payloads to be maximised, the New generation Freightliner Argosy
has been designed from the wheels up to pass the ultimate test - turning a
profit. When you buy a Freightline, you not only get one of the very best trucks
in the world. You also get the knowledge and support of Daimler AG.
The superior technology, design and production techniques available to such an
experienced, global organisation are all reflected in the New Generation Argosy.
immense resources are why this truck has evolved so far, so fast.
