Columbia Truck

Built for efficiency and reliability

The Columbia was designed for maximum reliability and productivity. The Columbia helps businesses run smart by lowering their overall cost per mile, maximising fuel economy and minimising maintenance costs.  Simply put, the Columbia gives back more than you put into it.  

No matter which Columbia configuration you choose, there’s a purpose behind every design feature. The aerodynamic body - tested in our state-of-the-art wind tunnel - reduces wind resistance and improves fuel economy.  The cab is manufactured from lightweight aluminium, allowing more payload. The Columbia was built to be a truck you can count on.  It was engineered with the same tough, reliable components used on all our Freightliner trucks - the kind of parts that stand up to miles of use and keep delivering.   When it comes to power, select proven choices from Mercedes-Benz, Detroit Diesel and Cummins ISX.  

You can also count on the Columbia for an exceptional ride.  Thanks to features like the Airliner™ front (optional) and rear (optional) suspensions, tuned shocks and tight wheel cuts, the ride is smooth and handling is precise and predictable .  That means less freight damage and reduced driver fatigue.  The idea behind it all: to keep your trucks on the road and running smart.
