Fuso Canter FE/FG Series Work Trucks

fusoCanter FE/FG Series commercial trucks by Fuso – available for sale from Empire Truck & Trailer – feature advanced technologies from Europe, Asia and North America, combined to deliver the lowest cost of ownership we’ve ever engineered into a medium duty truck. Canter trucks have been proven worldwide for more than 30 years, and are well recognized for their quality, legendary strength and durability.

Giving Your Business an Advantage in Fuel Economy

Today’s fleet owners know how important it is to cut overhead costs whenever possible. That’s why switching your medium-duty trucks over to the Fuso platform just makes sense. In testing, the Fuso Canter delivered 8.45%* better economy than an Isuzu NPR-HD commercial truck, and improved to 13.8%* better when the Canter’s ECO mode was engaged.

Cut Service Costs and Save

A Canter work truck gives you a payload advantage, with up to 2,200 pounds greater payload capacity than Isuzu. And a warranty advantage, because our industry-best 5-year/175,000-mile powertrain warranty covers not just the engine, but the entire powertrain as well.

See the Benefits in Your Bottom Line

Driven as few as 20,000 miles annually, a properly driven and maintained Fuso Canter commercial truck can deliver a big boost to your bottom line – saving you several thousand dollars in operating costs in just three to four years – and for many dependable years thereafter. Canter FE/FG Series commercial trucks offer the kind of performance and rock-solid reliability that you can build a business on.

Completely Re-Engineered From the Wheels Up

The Canter is among the most forward-thinking medium duty commercial trucks ever. And its comfortable cab isn’t just aesthetically pleasing; it offers more head, leg, knee and elbow room. The standard Fuso features comfortable seating for three; upgrade to the FE160 Crew, and you can easily fit a team of seven adults in the expanded cab. It’s perfect for any application where safely transporting personnel and equipment is essential.

FusoCanter Some trucks bring together engines and transmissions with little or no engineering partnership between the manufacturers, which can compromise powertrain performance. Not the Canter. Its 4P10 diesel engine and DUONIC transmission are perfectly matched, developed to work together and proven in more than 2 million miles of real-world testing.


The Canter’s turbocharged, dual overhead cam 4-cylinder diesel engine is a technological marvel. Lighter and more compact than traditional diesels, it delivers its flat torque continuously from low through high RPMs, to move payloads more efficiently. It is complemented by a 2-stage turbocharger to produce optimum boost pressure over a wider range of driving speeds. The more precise fuel metering of Piezo direct injection also helps the engine achieve far greater combustion efficiency and fuel economy.

DUONIC Transmission

Automated manual transmissions have been proven over many years in race cars. Mitsubishi Fuso’s 6-speed DUONIC transmission is the world’s first in a commercial vehicle. It combines the economy of a manual transmission with the convenience of an automatic, with dual clutch actuation and no torque interruption between shifts. It also incorporates the ability to creep in traffic for smoother operation and offers the advantage of ECO mode, upshifting earlier in heavy traffic to consume less fuel.


The engine uses environmentally friendly BlueTec® emissions control technology (also found in Mercedes-Benz automobiles and Freightliner trucks). BlueTec® treats emissions after they exit the engine using a diesel particulate filter and urea SCR system that meet today’s stringent standards for NOx and CO2 emissions reduction, without the traditional fuel economy penalty. BlueTec® is simple to operate and easy to maintain.
