Hell yes! Lets make this sleek aerodynamic beast as inefficient as we posasibly can! Personally I hope we get the small sleeper and mid sleeper! 48, and 60! Would be cool to get a 4x2 as well for chassi option but I doubt that.
The configurator hints at that being an option but its a bit confusing, so I'm not sure. Some google images do show 4x2 that seem factory. Does not say differently atleast. And thats with a sleeper and all.

I will do a 6x4 with the 48" sleeper, as long of a chassi as I can option probably, or something in between. I would like to see more custom choices for the tanks and added storage on the trucks, all of them. APU options as well...
Seeing how we are getting more and more interesting options on trailers, I could see SCS add that to trucks at some point. Right now and for the past 8 years, they have just been so busy doing the basics almost, hard for them to focus on the finer details even if they do try and do improve on that side too as much as they can.

Let's just be realistic it could be the 3 cabs and you're regular chassis but we got Aerox kit and the Apu thing in the back
Take it with a grain of salt nothing is 100% sure

Well, that explains the Freightliner dealer I drove by in Ft. Collins.

I really hope that SCS gives us the option of the small roof deflector on the day cab. In real-life, this is just about as common as the full air deflector.

You need to really hate your self to be driving a daycab in ATS tho! ;) Get a COE with a sleeper instead I say! xD

I would not go as far as to say, remove daycabs, hell no. But 1, dont force us to start in a daycab. 2. Place markers for possible places to sleep for drivers without a house on the back! ;P

Unrelated. Slow time in the large logging areas....! xD

Using a day cab in ATS is necessary for realistically simulating certain applications of trucking. In the real world, you would typically use a day cab tractor unit for doing things such as vocational work (logging, farming, etc.), doing short/local deliveries, and pulling doubles and triples (you hardly ever see a sleeper pulling triples in real-life).

Yes, I totally agree. But doing so in a realistic way at this scale as things are now is a nightmare. I have tried many times, doing logging for example. Thats why I get very excited for very small sleepers. W990 has a tiny bed behind its seat, that might be a bit too small, but you know. The 49x look to have all the perfect options, so I hope we do get them, Oscar did not confirm anything, but said, not to worry, so that made me hope a little atleast! :D

I went up the logging area in Washington the other day. I just barely got down to a resting area in time, and I went up there with all my driving hours ready! Because I knew it would be tight!

4x2 is a factory option, with either in-house Detroit or Meritor axle. You can see that in the "Build your Cascadia" menu on the Freightliner site.

Since y'all have posted your future Cascadia configs: I'd like to go with a 116" BBC, 72" raised roof sleeper, DD13 engine with a 13-speed EF manual and plastic mirrors, bmper and sideskirts.

Kind of strange to have a manual now but are manual only transmission trucks dying out or are they still strong
