Fus­ing on and off road ca­pa­bil­i­ties

South Western Times - - Wheels -

The Can­ter is Fuso’s of­fer­ing to the light duty truck mar­ket and is the only Ja­panese truck in that mar­ket boast­ing 30,000km ser­vice in­ter­vals.

Able to be con­fig­ured to suit al­most any ap­pli­ca­tion, the Can­ter range also sports class lead­ing tare weight, which when com­bined with the ser­vice in­ter­vals, means driv­ers can carry more, more of­ten.

The Can­ter comes in two ranges, the Cab Chas­sis and Built Ready.

The Built Ready range is for those with a spe­cific need in mind for a truck and buy­ing for a set pur­pose.

The cab chas­sis range comes in three vari­ants, the 4x2, Crew Cab and 4x4, all of which can be cus­tom con­fig­ured to any job.

Per­haps the most ver­sa­tile of all the Can­ters, the 4x4 Cab Chas­sis de­liver class lead­ing dy­nam­ics both on and off road thanks to in­creased ground clear­ance, lock­able front hubs and rear lim­ited slip dif­fer­en­tials.

All of the Can­ter vari­ants are pow­ered by the same Mit­subishi 3L turbo diesel four cylin­der en­gine, fea­tur­ing a Piezo fuel in­jec­tion sys­tem, ef­fi­ciently im­prov­ing fuel econ­omy and re­duc­ing pol­lu­tants. The vari­able ge­om­e­try turbo charger helps to pro­vide 370Nm of torque, avail­able from just 1350rpm with im­proved delivery thanks to the fea­tured elec­tronic feed­back con­trol.

The 4x4 mod­els come in two of­fer­ings, a wide cab and wide crew cab.

The wide cab has a seat­ing ca­pac­ity of three oc­cu­pants in­clud­ing the driver, while the wide crew cab can ac­com­mo­date up to seven peo­ple, with both cabs fea­tur­ing a sus­pended seat for the driver, fur­ther in­creas­ing comfort both on and off road. Two wheel base op­tions are avail­able for the wide cab vari­ant, mea­sur­ing 2815mm on the short wheel base model and 3415mm on the mid wheel base.

In short, Fuso’s 4x4 Can­ter mod­els are among the most ver­sa­tile light duty trucks on the mar­ket, all of which are avail­able from Bun­bury Trucks.
