Penske Truck Leasing announced it will make Truck-Lite custom LED headlights its standard spec on the Freightliner Cascadia tractors it offers for full-service lease.
 
Last November, Penske announced that 5,000 of its 2012 and 2013 semi-tractors currently within its commercial truck rental fleet would be retrofitted with these LED lights, and that they would be core standard specifications for all the semi-tractors in its commercial truck rental fleet.
 
The Truck-Lite LED headlamps were initially developed for military use and offer increased durability, visibility and safety. Manufactured in the U.S., Truck-Lite’s forward-lighting technology is battlefield tough and tested on vehicles serving in the Iraqi and Afghan theaters since 2007.

Truck-Lite’s LED forward-lighting headlamps offer improved driver visibility through its more natural light spectrum, leading to improved object recognition at night and increased daytime visibility.

Truck-Lite’s LED beam pattern also reduces eye-strain for drivers and reduces harsh headlight glare to oncoming traffic. An additional benefit is a significant reduction in amperage draw on the vehicle’s electrical system, freeing up power for other uses and resulting in a 50-times longer lighting system life than conventional halogen technology.
