The Mitsubishi Fuso Canter FE160 is a versatile, reliable solution for all kinds of jobs your fleet may encounter. With a GVWR of 15,995, it has a body/payload capacity of 10,505 pounds and can be fitted with a truck body up to 22 feet long. It’s a similar size to its kid brother, the FE130, but features a beefier frame and a higher payload capacity.
Its responsive steering and flexible allowances for truck bodies allow the FE160 an even broader range of applications. The ball-nut style steering column features a hydraulic power boost for smooth turns on the highway and in job sites. In addition to package delivery or carrying parts and equipment between job sites, this truck is also ideal for construction, landscaping, and even refrigerated transport.
Because the FE160 can carry over an additional ton than leading cabovers in its class, it’ll keep your business moving forward for all types of medium duty jobs. In fitting with the Mitsubishi Fuso Canter line in general, it packs the power you need in a fuel efficient package geared to improve your fleet’s bottom line.
Efficient Power and Design With the FE160
The engine is a robust DOHC 4-cylinder, water cooled and turbocharged and featuring 4 valves per cylinder. This produces 161 horsepower at 3,400 RPM, and 295 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,300 RPM.
The six speed Mitsubishi Fuso DUONIC transmission means smooth shifting and less driver fatigue. Long hours on the road can be taxing for anyone, and the smoother the ride and the less effort required to shift through the range of gears the better. This is particularly true for heavier loads that approach the maximum payload when acceleration and braking come further into play and can require a bit more finesse.
All Canter trucks feature a 3 year unlimited mileage bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 5 year/175,000 mile powertrain warranty, allowing drivers and fleet owners alike peace of mind that should anything go wrong during a haul the manufacturer stands behind the product. It’s one less headache when managing a variety of vehicles in the rotation, and like everything else about Canter work trucks, it keeps things moving forward.
