Expanding on its existing relationship with Mercedes Benz, Xperi announced that HD Radio receivers will be available in digital dash displays of Freightliner Cascadia trucks early next year.

Xperi SVP/GM Jeff Jury said in an announcement that the Freightliner Cascadia “will be the first commercial truck to fully implement HD Radio technology in its cab.”

Daimler Trucks North America is the parent of the Freightliner line.

The two companies have worked together before, including in the hybrid radio space. Xperi’s DTS AutoStage system was introduced to the market in the Daimler MB User Experience (MBUX) in the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Xperi says HD Radio technology is now available from approximately 40 manufacturers in about 200 vehicle models and that it is in 75+ million vehicles.
