A truck produced by Freightliner.

History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Freightliner Century Class page on 2 4June 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Freightliner Century Class was an aerodynamic sloped hood (set back front axle) conventional semi-truck produced by American manufacturer Freightliner.

It was introduced in 1996 to replace the FLD model, (even though the FLD was still being produced until the 2001MY)

The Century Class was renamed Century S/T (which stood for Safety and Technology) in the 2000 MY. The S/T package added Driver's side air bag in the steering wheel and better seat mounting restraints.

The Century S/T was also offered with a Driver's Lounge and Backpack option. The Backpack option was an added fiberglass hump added to the outside of a rear cab sleeper model that gave an additional interior storage space between the bunks. That option was available on the Century and Columbia Class.

The 2005 MY brought a facelift, with larger "jeweled" headlamps in a redesigned headlight housing, redesigned front grill with larger bars going across it and a redesigned front bumper with recessed round fog and driving lights (if chosen as they were optional.)

The Century Class was Freightliner's flagship model when the FLD ended production in 2001.

When the Columbia Class was introduced in the 2002 MY, the Century was still the flagship model, as the Columbia was geared more as a Fleet Truck and the Century Class was geared more to the Owner Operator.

The Century remained in production in the United States until 2010 when it was replaced by the newly designed Cascadia.

The Century is still in production in Australia.
