Cabovers are known to provide great visibility.  The 2015 Argosy offers a wide windshield– coupled with a high, wide cab design and no engine tunnel obstruction, the Argosy provides the driver an unobstructed view.

“For the first time, a tight turning radius is available without the necessity of awkward and arduous cab entry,” Freightliner Trucks states.

The Argosy offers the same 40 safety features you’ve come to expect from Freightliner.

“On the highway, on a delivery or on the jobsite, drivers spend a lot of time in our trucks. With ergonomically designed driving environments and innovative engineering advancements such as a foot-actuated tilt and telescoping steering column and high-tech thermal and sonic insulation, Freightliner optimizes safety and comfort features. Take Freightliner Trucks’ Enhanced Stability Control (ESC), for example, which improves vehicle handling and control. At the end of the day, a safe, comfortable driver is a productive driver,” Freightliner stated.


Open Interior

The Argosy’s design offers an open, airy feeling.  Cabovers provide extra cab width.  The Argosy offers stand-up headroom in the 110″ Raised Roof model.
