FUSO Canter to get Advanced Safety Features across 4×2 range

In News, Fuso2 MinutesBy GeorgiJuly 11, 2024

The FUSO Canter is now being offered with Advanced Safety Features as standard across the 4×2 range.

It is the first time Advanced Safety Features will come as standard across the 4×2 range, which includes Active Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Electronic Braking System, and Electronic Stability Control.

Additionally, new LED headlights, fog lamps and indicators provide enhanced visibility in poor conditions – both for the driver and other motorists – while inside the cab, a new, larger eight-inch touchscreen multimedia unit delivers improved functionality and on-the-go useability.

The on-dash touchscreen relays images from the rear-mounted reversing camera and works with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto for text-to-speech and hands-free talking. Up to six additional cameras can be added as optional extras.

The new Canter features an all-new front grille design, flanked by a new LED lighting arrangement.

Range highlights include the Canter Tipper with limited slip differential and the DUONIC 2.0 automated transmission, available across various models.

Highly adaptable for multiple applications, there are 29 models in the 2024 Canter range, excluding derate options, with wheelbases from 2500mm to 4750mm up to 9T GVM.

“Over several decades, Canter has been one of the most popular light trucks in New Zealand – a tried and trusted investment for single-unit owner-operators to giant multinationals,” said Fuso New Zealand general manager Kevin Smith.

“We understand what operators expect from a truck and remain committed to delivering on that across all categories. We’re also placing a priority on the wellbeing of drivers, which is critical to the health of our industry.

“In terms of efficiency and performance, FUSO’s DUONIC automated manual transmission is still best-in-class and Canter Tipper remains the only light-duty truck in New Zealand to feature a limited slip differential,” he said.

“We were also the first truck brand in New Zealand to introduce Advanced Safety Features across our light, medium and heavy-duty ranges. Now these come as standard across the 4×2 Canter range.”
