1) High-visibility red seatbelts
Those bright red seatbelts are more than just a FUSO brand signature. They’re designed to assure high visibility and improve safety. The impossible-to-ignore color provides a great reminder for driver and passengers to buckle up.
2) FuelSense 2.0 with DynActive™ shifting
The Allison 1000 automatic transmission is designed for improved fuel economy. And with the added benefit FuelSense 2.0 technology and DynActive optimal shifting, the fuel efficiency gets even better. Rather than relying on fixed points on a shift table, FuelSense 2.0 uses a learning algorithm to continuously find the ideal balance of fuel economy and performance for your truck’s duty cycle. This means a 2% to 6% increase in fuel economy, depending on the application. There’s even a Neutral-at-Stop feature for additional fuel savings.
3) Cruise control
When engaged, cruise control allows drivers to maintain a consistent, legal speed without watching the speedometer. It’s a valuable safety feature that helps prevent speeding––a factor in over 50% of commercial truck accidents. Traveling at or below posted speed saves fuel and is easier on the vehicle.
4) One-touch power windows
Convenient one-touch operation helps drivers keep both hands on the wheel. Simply press the switch once and the window will travel all the way up or down.
5) Driver seat with lumbar support
We think drivers deserve special treatment. That’s why the FE GAS comes standard with a driver’s seat that features adjustable lumbar support. The ergonomic design and rugged construction help keep drivers of all sizes comfortable and alert. We’ve also increased driver seat bolstering for all-day comfort, with extended seat cushion covering for added durability.
6) Key/keyless entry
Locks and unlocks doors at the touch of a button
Keyless entry is a feature that allows vehicle access without the use of the traditional mechanical key. It provides greater security and convenience by letting the driver lock and unlock the vehicle while standing at a distance from it. A standard key is also included.
7) Open floorboard
Here’s a design upgrade that really works in your favor. We moved the shifter from the floor to the dashboard. The now-unobstructed cab floor assures plenty of space and allows more room for a third passenger. It makes getting in and out on the passenger side easier and safer, especially in heavy traffic.
8) 10 free oil changes/First 5 years or 75,000 miles.
Here’s a money-saving feature that makes a great investment even better. Each new 2019/2020 FE GAS truck receives up to 10 free, standard-interval oil changes during the first 5 years or 75,000 miles. Service intervals are every 7,500 miles, or 5,000 miles for severe duty applications. And during each visit, we’ll give your truck a complimentary bumper-to-bumper inspection.
9) FusoFirst™ owner support
When you purchase your FE GAS truck, you’re automatically enrolled in our FusoFirst program. Loaded with valuable owner-support features and services, FusoFirst provides 24/7 roadside assistance and app-based information to keep your trucks moving and on schedule. Available in the U.S. and Canada, the FusoFirst program is dedicated to helping you maximize vehicle uptime.
10) Verizon Connect Telematics*/Free 1-year subscription**
Verizon Connect software links you, your trucks, and your drivers—all from your smartphone, tablet, or other connected device. Your FE Gas truck includes 12 months of free telematics connectivity through Verizon Connect. It’s a subscription package that combines Verizon Fleet Standard for fleet management, and Verizon Maintenance Connect for remote diagnostics. A powerful tool for growing truck fleets, Verizon Connect delivers accurate, up-to-the-minute data that will increase productivity, efficiency and cost savings.
*Available in the U.S. Only **This Introductory promotional offer is standard on all 2019 model year FUSO FE140, FE160 and FE160 CREW CAB GAS trucks. This offer does not apply to 2020 model year truck.
11) Extended Allison transmission warranty
More good news: We’ve added a 2-year extension to the standard 3-year Allison transmission warranty. Do the math, and your FE GAS truck’s transmission is now covered by a 5-year/unlimited mileage warranty, for extra peace of mind.
12) 40-gallon in-rail fuel tank
Perfect for longer routes and extended trips. The 40-gallon, rear-mounted, in-rail fuel tank has a larger capacity than most competitors. It offers greater driving range, which means fewer fuel stops during the truck’s operational life.
13) 19.5-inch tires
You asked for it, and we've heard you. Fleet Standard tires with improved availability compared to a 17.5-inch size. Better stability, enhanced tracction and braking performance, and reduced wear are just some of the advantages of these tires.
14) Higher payload capability
Net payload is how much weight––passengers and cargo––a truck can carry in the cab and bed. The FE GAS engine delivers 297 HP with 361 lb./ft. of torque, and with our largest model that means capacity up to 11,855 lbs. That’s ideal for delivering large cargo such as furniture, frozen foods, landscaping materials, construction materials, or even heavy machinery.
15) Dual-caliper disc brakes on all wheels
You’re getting more pad and more grip all around. Which means plenty of braking performance––and confidence––in extreme situations as well as during normal stop-and-start driving. By providing disc brakes with two calipers instead of one, heat distribution to each pad is reduced, so there’s little likelihood of overheating.
16) Electro-coated frame rails
This extra step goes a long way toward protecting your chassis against corrosion. Electro-coating assures longer frame rail life and adds a clean look to the chassis. Keep in mind that your FE GAS frame rails provide additional space for toolboxes and side-mounted equipment.
17) Larger alternator – 180 amps
Higher amperage means more battery charging power––and more confidence that your electrical system is always performing at its best. At 180 amps, the FE GAS alternator is sized to easily handle the demands of the engine and all accessories. You’ll have plenty of power to operate everything from accessories to electric over hydraulic functions without depleting the battery.
18) Impact-absorbing steering column
In the event of a frontal collision, this valuable safety feature helps prevent the steering main shaft from injuring the driver. The column is engineered to absorb energy from a collision, preventing the impact force from reaching the driver. Also, doors on the FE GAS truck feature anti-crush bars that help protect cab occupants.
19) Acceleration rate management
This is a great tool for both safe driving and fuel conservation. Our acceleration rate management software helps prevent aggressive driving practices by automatically controlling engine torque and limiting vehicle acceleration to a specified rate.
20) Allison 1000 automatic transmission
Designed for smooth shifting and exceptional fuel efficiency, the Allison 1000 transmission sets the FE GAS powertrain apart from the competition. It’s a proven, commercial-grade automatic transmission that delivers Allison’s legendary reputation for reliability, durability and hill-climbing power. Ideal for the stop-and-start nature of urban delivery, the Allison 1000 is specifically engineered for the most demanding medium-duty applications.
21) Auxiliary compressor mounting bracket
This feature is used with a pad-mount type compressor for rear body refrigeration. The bracket is integrated into the front engine accessory drive as standard equipment on all FE GAS engines (both CL4 and CL5).
22) GM 6.0L, V8 gasoline engine
The FE GAS comes standard with an industry-proven General Motors 6.0L, V8 engine. It runs on regular gasoline, generates 297 horsepower and 361 pound-feet of torque, and delivers twice the displacement of our diesel option. In addition to saving money on fuel, it also lets you avoid the complexities of diesel engine emissions and maintenance. Since all fueling stations offer regular gasoline, your drivers will have increased peace-of-mind knowing the hunt for diesel is a thing of the past.
23) Daytime running lights
It’s just common sense: The more visible you make your truck, the less chance of having an accident. That’s why we include daytime running lights on the FE GAS. This additional safety feature makes your truck easier for other drivers to see during daylight hours, reducing the chance of collision.
24) Front collision guard system
25) 102”- wide mirrors
Every driver wants to see more of the world outside the cab. That’s why we include wide-angle side mirrors that dramatically increase the driver’s field of view. The 102” view provides extra visibility, keeping you safe––and compliant––on the road and at the loading dock.
26) Gasket-retained windshield
Replacing or installing a new windshield has never been easier. Our GAS trucks feature a gasket-retained windshield, in lieu of an adhesive-mounted type. This makes windshield replacement faster, easier and more reliable.
