Freightliner Columbia CL112 Construction


Features & Benefits

Efficient and reliable. Two words that are music to the ears of truck owners and drivers. Two words that perfectly describe the Freightliner Columbia CL112 truck. Whether you need a truck for distribution or construction work, you know your Columbia CL112 is going to be there with you through rough and smooth. The CL112 has been designed to maximise your payloads and therefore your profits. Its high strength aluminium cabins give a surprisingly low tare weight, while the set back front axle allows for uncompromised weight distribution. The 16 degree slopped bonnet means exceptional visibility in tight areas along with improved aerodynamics. Plus you get great fuel economy, ease of maintenance and overall lower costs per kilometre.


With its comfortable, ergonomic layout, the CL112 is a pleasure to drive.

  • Freightliner HB seats provide the ultimate in personalised comfort
  • A steering wheel with standard foot operated tilt and telescoping features
  • The windshield’s 24 degrees angle reduces drag and fuel costs


Careful design decreases downtime and costs.

  • The hood tilts to 90 degrees for easy access to the engine compartment
  • Transparent fluid reservoirs make your daily checks easy
  • Headlight bulbs can be replaced in minutes without tools
  • The two-piece curved windshield allows partial replacement and greater visibility



The Columbia CL112 is hugely adaptable, so whatever your needs you’ve got the power to match. Powered by the latest generation Cummins ISLe5, the 8.9 litre engine delivers up to 400 hp and 1,254 lb-ft of torque and can be teamed with either an Eaton manual or Allison automatic transmissions. This means the Freightliner CL112 can be rated to 40,000kg Gross Combination Mass. With the high power to weight ratio, compression brake up to 250 bhp and the rear engine ‘Power Take Off,’ this truck has a lot of grunt behind it.
The CL112 can be fine-tuned to perfectly fit whatever job you’ve got, being available in 6×4, 8×4 and 10×4 configurations for construction work, and 4×2 or 6×4 for distribution roles. A massive 1,300 square inch ‘engine mounted’ radiator ensures close ‘fan to shroud’ clearance for maximum cooling efficiency.

  • Available with Eaton Manual, or Allison Automatic
