Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America (MFTA) showed off its new 2013 model-year medium-duty cabover Canter at the National Truck Equipment Assn. (NTEA) show this week in Indianapolis. The trucks are now in full production, the company noted.
The 2013 Canter comes standard with dual batteries, and also include a factory-installed power take off (PTO) wiring harness designed to receive an optional, matched control switch that also makes connecting the PTO to the vehicle easier, MFTA said.
The company added that 33-gal. side-mounted fuel tank will once again be available as a factory-installed option, while mirrors will have new, wider mounting arms that facilitate the installation of bodies with outside widths up to 102-in. on all Canter FE models, including the Canter FE160 crew cab.
In addition to the five cab colors MFTA has traditionally offered, the company said its 2013 Canter can now also be ordered in solid black – which may help save some customers from having to paint the cabs to match their fleet’s colors.
