Mitsubishi Fuso announced that the 2015 Canter FE130 is now available with a new lightweight dry van body.
The new body has a fiberglass-reinforced, gel -coated honeycomb construction that is designed to be both lightweight and strong. The company calls it the Supreme FiberPanel HoneyComb body and says it weighs 288 pounds less than a comparable fiberglass-reinforced plywood box.
The new FE130 has a standard payload capacity of up to 7,975 pounds and with the Supreme FiberPanel HoneyComb body, the maximum capacity increases by almost 300 pounds.
“By adding this new Supreme FiberPanel HoneyComb body, we can boost payload capacity even more, allowing our customers to haul more per trip,” said Leighton Good, Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America product and application manager.
The Supreme FiberPanel HoneyComb body comes in 12, 14 and 16 foot lengths. It measures 96 inches in width and has interior height options of 85, 91 and 97 inches.
