Freightliner has announced an extended warranty that covers the Argosy cab-over and Coronado 114 conventional truck for four years or 800,000km.

The extended warranty is not a short term offer and is available for new customers through ‘til December 31, 2016.

Freightliner trucks are currently covered by a standard one year/unlimited km warranty, while the new extended warranty has been introduced for the most popular models in the range, the Argosy and Coronado 114.

There are two parts to the extended warranty program. The first is the basic complimentary extended warranty for three years/800,000km, which incorporates the components originally covered by the basic vehicle warranty.

In addition there is also a drivetrain component complimentary extended warranty for two years/800,000km, which covers such items as the transmission, clutch, driving axles and more.

Neither the standard or extended warranties cover the truck’s engine, which is covered by the engine manufacturer, being either Detroit or Cummins.

The introduction of the extended warranty program comes as Freightliner further strengthens its product offering with the Cummins ISXe5 Argosy cab-over, the first Argosy to be offered with Selective Catalytic Reduction.

Freightliner is also offering customers the choice of a Detroit engine or an optional Cummins powerplant in either Coronado or Argosy.
