Freightliner Custom MT Chassis
Built for increased productivity and efficiency, the MT chassis offers medium- and heavy-duty options powered by gas or diesel. Its excellent maneuverability in tight spots and four-wheel hydraulic ABS disc brakes provide reliable stopping power and better steering control.
Each chassis we build is customized to the manufacturer and model specifications so they can deliver the features and styling they envision – that’s why we call ourselves Freightliner Custom Chassis. Your vehicle may come equipped with any combination of the options below, but no matter which FCCC chassis you buy, you can rest assured that our dedication to superior craftsmanship, the finest components and outstanding owner care will keep you on the road for years to come.
