But also in 2015 the SR340 model came out with the 340HP engine. If you have an SR300, you likely have a 300HP engine. If a SR340, then you have the 340HP engine. It appears the model SR300 vs SR340 is an indication of the engine horsepower. So, there was no "cut" in HP, it was "increased" in 2015 when the SR340 model came out. The newer models also had heated mirrors, water tank heat pads, and LED awning lights. It appears that during the model changeover in 2015, some SR300s were getting these new accessories. So, 2015 still had some "leftover" model SR300s as the SR340s were coming out. This is all speculation based on what I was able to find out from various sources.
I didn't mean they actually cut the HP. Sorry I wasn't clear.
What i meant was that it's classified as a 2015 but a SR300 - however there is no brochure for a 2015 SR300 only 2015 SR340 w/ 340HP. So we really got a 2014.5 labeled as a 2015 (Have LED Awning, heated mirrors (not sure on the water tank pads yet, but you get the idea). Still 300HP/660Tq as the 2014's were.
Honestly not a big deal. If I could get the additional power for $500 - $750, I'd do it no problem. At $2000-2500 eh.. I'll live.
The dealer did throw in a alignment with the Freightliner dealer prior to me picking it up - so I don't have to worry about the tires getting chewed up as I've read others have had the issue with (since the coach is not aligned after they put everything on the chassis).
