The medium-duty truck that will
drive your business forward.
No matter what you deliver, the Canter FE160 will help you do it more dependably. At 15,995 GVWR, it’s a workhorse, right in the sweet spot of our medium-duty lineup. Comfortable enough for drivers of all shapes and sizes. Versatile enough to serve in any application from construction, industrial supply and landscaping to refrigerated transport. Its wide stance and compact, lighter diesel engine help contribute to responsive steering. Its flat, 33.5-inch wide frame makes for easier mounting of truck bodies up to 22 feet long. And it will carry more than a ton more payload than the leading cabover in its class. What a great way to move your business forward.
