In this issue our cover story looks at the truck that will be Freightliner’s frontline weapon in the heavy duty market, the Cascadia. While with the Daimler camp we went along to the launch of its range of Mercedes Benz AWDs, the third installment in the Benz brand’s updated line up following Actros and the rigid models to market.

As well as all that we have another road test of International’s ProStar, this time using Cummins’s uprated 600hp ISX e5 with a Sydney to Brisbane road test, interesting stuff. In something completely different we look at Isuzu Australia’s ‘shock’ local electric truck development program, we chat to EV guru Ian Wright and we also have a couple of interesting operator stories and we look at Mercedes Benz new X class ute and Mahindra’s upgraded Pik Up.

Hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
