Mitsubishi Fuso to Offer New Long-Wheelbase Class 3 Canter FE Model

October 08, 2013

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. (MFTA) has announced that it is now offering its Class 3 Canter FE125 cabover truck with a 169.3-inch wheelbase that will accommodate bodies up to 20 feet long. This work truck model has a GVWR of 12,500 pounds and a body/payload capacity in its normal configuration of 7,095 pounds, making the new long-wheelbase version well suited for urban delivery of high-bulking items such as furniture, baked goods, vending refill, clothing, etc.

The FUSO Canter FE125 accommodates the same rear body widths and heights as its heavier Class 4 & 5 FE brethren

According to Todd Bloom, MFTA’s president and CEO, “The new Canter FE125 with 169.3-inch wheelbase will give our customers another level of versatility as they work to satisfy their truck transport needs. At the same time, it will offer the low cost-of-ownership available on all of our other models — based on superior fuel economy, higher payload capacity and longer standard warranty than our medium-duty competitors.”

Unlike some competitive Class 3 trucks, the FUSO Canter FE125 accommodates the same rear body widths and heights as its heavier Class 4 & 5 FE brethren, according to MFTA. The new long-wheelbase Canter FE125 models are available now at authorized Mitsubishi Fuso dealers. To learn more, or to find an authorized Mitsubishi Fuso dealer, visit www.mitfuso.com.
