The Freightliner FLD in MM2

The Freightliner FLD 120 Classic XL is an add-on truck released by HQTM Team that is currently the most popular vehicle on Midtown Madness 2 eXtreme, with over 50,000 downloads since its release on April 13th 2004[1]. It features a trailer that uses a similar system to the American LaFrance Fire Truck (except its wheels don't rotate when you stear the vehicle) and is suprisingly one of few custom trucks to do so.

A fleet of real Freightliner FLDs

In 1942, Freightliner Trucks launched, and went on to build some of the most iconic trucks to come from the US. In 1951, Freightliner started selling trucks through the White Motor Company, but after success in the 60s, the early 70s saw the demise of WMC and in 1974, Freightliner split to form its own private company. In 1981, the firm joined the Daimler-Chrysler group and sold rebranded versions of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Unfortunately, these were not popular, so in the 1990s Freightliner developed its own line of medium duty vehicles. From 1995 to 2000, the company aquired many other brands of commercial vehicle. It was in this period that the Freightliner Century, Freightliner FLD 120 Classic XL, American LaFrance Fire Truck and Silver Eagle Fire Truck were produced. Between 2001 and 2005, Freightliner began selling marques it couldn't sustain, including LaFrance. In 2007, Freightliner was split, to form Daimler Trucks North America. Now, Freightliner deals in heavy-duty trucks, as well as a rebranded Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. They are also experimenting with battery packs supplied by Tesla Motors to produce an electric vehicle in the future.
