2015 Model FUSO Canters available

2015 Model FUSO Canters available at dealerships now

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America Inc. has announced that its new 2015 model FUSO Canters are available now at authorized dealers throughout the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Guam.

Led by the new Class 3 Canter FE130 with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 13,200 lb., the full line of medium-duty work trucks also includes the Class 4 FE160 and FE160 Crew Cab—both with a GVWR of 15,995 lb., the Class 4 FG4X4 with a 14,050 lb. GVWR, and the Class 5 FE180, with a GVWR of 17,995 lb.

2015 FUSO models are powered by a 3.0L, fuel-injected, turbocharged, intercooled diesel engine coupled to FUSO’s exclusive Duonic six-speed overdrive automated manual transmission with fully automatic dual clutch control and creep function. According to Todd Bloom, president and chief executive officer of MFTA, “The higher GVWR of the new Canter FE130, coupled with its long wheelbase options, provides particular versatility for delivery businesses of all kinds.”

A new Engine Protection System is standard equipment for all models. This system will shut the engine down if oil pressure drops below a minimum threshold. A 33-gallon side-mounted fuel tank is optional on all Canter models with a wheelbase of 133.9 in. or longer.

A new Idle Limit System (ILS) is also available to automatically turn off the engine of a running Canter after a specified time of three, five or ten minutes when parked. This dealer-programmed optional feature is a significant benefit for drivers who operate in areas with regulated maximum idling times, said MFTA.

A Clarion AM/FM/CD radio with Bluetooth, MP3 and USB compatibility remains an option to help ensure that drivers of all Canter models can communicate via cell phone unencumbered, especially in those areas in which hands-free operation is legislated. In addition, 2015 model Canters are EPA13 compliant.
