IC Bus LLC has announced its CE Series school bus powered by the Power Solutions International (PSI) 8.8-liter propane engine is now available for order. IC Bus, a subsidiary of Navistar Inc., first revealed the offering in September 2014.
The company says the purpose-built propane-powered CE Series is designed to provide diesel-like performance with higher torque at lower engine speeds. The company says the PSI engine also benefits stop-and-start applications to allow immediate acceleration after stops and greater hill climbing capability, as well as eliminates excessive noise, heat and vibration associated with constant engine revving.
“The CE Series bus was purpose-built for the school bus industry, and we're proud of the advancements we continue to make in order to meet our high standards and those of our customers for safety, quality and environmental impact,” says Trish Reed, vice president and general manager, IC Bus.
