Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. (MFTA), announced the newest Fuso Sales, Service, and Parts center at Birmingham Freightliner in Birmingham, Ala. The dealership will be servicing both gasoline and diesel models.
This marks the third Fuso franchise for Birmingham Freightliner’s parent company, Peach State Truck Center. This is the second FUSO franchise in the State of Alabama.
“We are very excited that another Peach State Truck Center location is adding the Fuso brand,” said Peter Young, director of Dealer Network Development, Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. “Birmingham Freightliner is an outstanding champion of Daimler truck brands, and we are confident new Fuso customers will see superior customer service from this Birmingham location.”
With the addition of medium-duty Fuso trucks to its product portfolio, Birmingham Freightliner now offers a full line-up of Class 3 to Class 8 trucks. FUSO trucks will expand the powertrain selection to include a gasoline engine option along with Freightliner’s diesel powertrains. Fuso is currently the only OEM with a cabover Class 5 gasoline-powered truck on the market, according to the truck maker.
As a full-service dealership for Fuso, Birmingham Freightliner’s customers will have access to new Fuso trucks, parts and service. This dealership supports its products with a 21-bay service center, which has a collision center. Other service offerings include same-day service and mobile repair service.
“Fuso trucks perfectly fit into our product lineup,” states Chris Bisanz, general manager, Birmingham Freightliner. “The addition of the popular Fuso cabover medium-duty truck allows our truck owners to add another Daimler truck brand into their existing Freightliner fleet.”
