SD stands for Severe Duty. That means your 114SD is built to perform in severe environments doing severe jobs, day after day. It can handle hard work because of smart design and sturdy construction. It's a simple formula. But a lot of engineering, materials and commitment go into it. If you're ready for the 114SD, it's definitely ready for you.
The mighty Detroit DD13® engine with BlueTec® emissions technology is packed with 350 HP and 1,350 lb-ft of torque at low RPM as standard. This gives the 114SD a strong bottom end with the launching power to handle even your most severe duty hauling.
Front engine, rear engine and transmission power take-off (PTO) options allow hydraulic packaging to suit any application. The 114SD's Smart PTO packaging allows a cleaner installation behind the cab, while providing maximum power output. An up-to 70-gallon fuel tank and a six-gallon DEF tank can be combined to maximize your front-axle loading and provide a clear back of cab chassis-mounting envelope for lift axles and ancillary body equipment.
The 114SD has optimized mid-chassis packaging and a strategically mounted aftertreatment system, making it easier than ever to spec the 114SD for your application. With its factory chassis layout, the 114SD simplifies upfitting for truck equipment manufacturers. The 114SD family also incorporates a proprietary SmartPlex™ Electrical System, which provides flexibility when configuring a truck to suit specific body installations. SmartPlex is a multiplex electrical system that simplifies chassis-to-body electrical integration and reduces the number of wires significantly. SmartPlex adds expansion capabilities and allows custom programming with no software to buy or additional tools required.
Durability requires solid engineering. Like a corrosion-resistant, steel-reinforced aluminum cab with Henrob rivets and welded construction. You should have no doubt that the Freightliner 114SD can handle the abuse of any job site. And, just to back it up, the 114SD comes with a comprehensive warranty.
The Freightliner 114SD features a rugged single-channel rail with 120k of tensile strength. Optional frame inner and outer rail liners are available for the most demanding applications. A steel-reinforced aluminum cab provides a platform with maximum hauling capacity. The 114SD also is available with a range of options for all regional configurations, so it can meet the specific needs of your line of work.
The 114SD is tough. Test after test proves it. The components, systems and entire truck platform have been subjected to an array of virtual and physical tests to ensure our trucks deliver the expected function, performance and reliability. The result is a durable and safe cab that meets stringent A-pillar impact, rollover and back wall impact tests. Plus, the vocational chassis backbone includes a complete offering of single and double channel frame rails. The result is a tensile strength of up to 120,000 psi and an RBM ratio up to 4.4 million inch-pounds per rail. So it can handle the abuse of the toughest job sites. No problem.
A comfortable driver is a productive driver. That's what Freightliner had in mind with the 114SD. Every feature was designed for superior visibility, enhanced ergonomics, and ultimately, a strong bottom line.
Just because a job is tough doesn't mean it has to be difficult. That's why we included so many operational efficiencies in the design of the 114SD's cab interior. Easy-to-reach controls and easy-to-read LED-backlit gauges offer ample customization to your specialized needs and preferences. The automotive-style wing dash and spacious cab interior provide superior ergonomics. And the 2,500 square-inch windshield and downward sloping cab hood result in outstanding visibility. Even getting in and out of the cab is easier with our low step-in height, 62-degree door opening and strategically placed exterior and interior grab handles.
