Fuso announces new FE130

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America Inc. introduced its new Canter FE130 work truck at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis on March 5. Its new entry into the Class 3 segment boosts GVWR and body/payload capacity by 700 lb. over the previous FE125 model.

According to the company, the boost in GVWR is actually the second part of a program to expand the utility and versatility of its Class 3 offering. In making the introduction, Todd Bloom, MFTA’s president and chief executive officer, said, “Strategically, this new truck is a direct result of our continuing efforts to improve and refine our products to provide increasing value to FUSO owners. We added a long-wheelbase option to our 2014 model FE125 as a running change in the fall of 2013. The new 169.3” wheelbase option allows installation of 20’ bodies—which greatly expanded the cargo volume capabilities of our lightest truck. For our customers who transport high-bulk items, this is a real benefit. But those who haul heavier items could only take advantage of the longer wheelbase if the GVWR also increased. And that’s where the new FE130 comes in.”

Model designations for FUSO commercial trucks are derived from their GVWRs. The GVWR for the new FE130 is 13,200 lb., compared to 12,500 lb. for the truck it replaces….Read More
