Freightliner was founded in 1930 on a simple principle: give workers what they need. That concept is just as relevant today as it was 85 years ago. Since then, Freightliner has become North America's leading medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicle manufacturer. Today, Freightliner leads the way with the introduction of the 4x4 Freightliner Sprinter - once again helping you get an edge on the competition.
