I don't think that's possible. However, this comparison wouldn't be a meaningful one, as the one in-game is an older model to the real pic you shared.

And the fact that the real photo is the short hood 116” BBC vs the standard hood 126” BBC we have in-game, so some parts differ.

I do think that the battery boxes and door steps are too shiny in ATS. They have more of a chrome finish than an aluminum finish. On the Western Star 49X, SCS gave us an option to have chrome or aluminum, but we're stuck with only the chrome option on the Freightliner Cascadia.

It's also impossible to make part behind front wheels in gray, like on photo. Then more I play - than much mistakes I find. ((( Or it's also some production version feature, and it's normal?
Maybe because the photo shows a 116" BBC, and the one in the game is the 126" BBC.
And if you google it, all 126" BBCs with no side skirts have that part painted, I might be wrong though

Edit:
Yeah, if you google 116s they always show that part black

Oh, guys, thank you. Now I see - on photo hood is a little shorter then in game one. Never know about this nuance. Now I understand why this part behind front wheels has other shape too.

It seems 2022 Freightliner cascadia now has new actros style dashboard.

I mean Merc really just chucked the interior of the Actros into the Cascadia when they refreshed it a few years ago so not shocking

Phew, good they didn't change the mirrors to the digital mirrors that actros have, new gauges are nice

You know, I wish that they putted the 116" hood in-game....and restricted us to using only the DD13 with that hood :mrgreen:

That would be so cool to be honest. That gives a chance to have a DD13 engine in the 500hp segment. I miss that one, I wish my fleet was full of 13 cylinder 500 hp engines, the Detroit and Volvo (I guess Cummins too) doesn’t have suitable powertrains ...

Also I’d love to see the 2022 upgrade to the Cascadia, especially for the dash and the A-Pillar deflectors.
