Two of PSI’s engines were featured by exhibitors during the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis March 6-8. Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (FCCC) and Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America (FUSO) displayed vehicles powered by our 8.8-liter propane and 6.0-liter gasoline engines, respectively. Both engines are EPA and CARB certified.
The 8.8-liter propane engine is part of FCCC’s DriveForce non-diesel engine line, which is used in the company’s S2G work truck vehicle. Providing 270 HP at 2,600 RPM and 565 lb.-ft of torque at 1,500 RPM, the engine provides uncompromised power and performance, maximum fuel efficiency and fuel flexibility to FCCC’s medium-duty truck chassis.
“PSI’s 8.8-liter propane engine is a clean-burning, purpose-built engine that offers the torque and power of a diesel engine at near-idle RPM levels,” CEO John Miller said. “We’re very excited that our 8.8-liter engine is a part of FCCC’s medium-duty truck line and we look forward to working together.”
The S2G has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 33,000 pounds and offers fleet owners lower operational costs and reduced emissions while providing high performance and payload capacity.
PSI’s 6.0-liter gasoline engine delivers 297 HP of power and 361 lb/ft. of torque to the new Class 5 FUSO FE180 gasoline-powered cabover truck, which was unveiled during the Work Truck Show. The engine provides FUSO with uncompromised power and performance and maximum fuel efficiency.
With a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 17,995 pounds, the FUSO FE180 provides increased payload capacity to Class 5 fleet owners compared to the traditional Class 4 gasoline-powered trucks on the market. The truck is an extension of gasoline-powered trucks offered by FUSO and will be available exclusively to the North American market and released later this year.
Both the FCCC and FUSO chassis are designed for commercial market applications including pickup and delivery, student transportation and municipal uses.
