The article reports that Freightliner Trucks will be launching the Freightliner Business Class M2 112 NG, which is its first natural gas-powered truck. Natural gas technology provides many benefits such as savings on fuel and operating costs and tax incentives because it uses alternative fuel choices. Powered by an 8.9 liter stoichiometric cooled-exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) engine called the Cummins Westport ISL G which meets EPA 2010 standards, the M2 112 will produce lesser emissions and have fewer maintenance requirements.
