Small engine. Big power. One of the advantages of being part of Navistar, the global transportation company that builds the world's best diesel engines, is that our engines are perfectly optimized for the job they have to do. Case in point: The IC Busâ„¢ RE Series. We wanted to build a bus that could move 52 passengers in the most cost-efficient way possible. So we built it around the MaxxForceÂ® DT wet-sleeve diesel engine, a legendary engine known for outstanding performance, efficiency and durability. It produces more power than larger, heavier engines â€“ up to 285 hp and 860 lb.-ft. of torque from its eight liters.
So if you need a bus that moves more people more efficiently, we've got you covered. And the MaxxForceÂ® DT saves you time, too. Its even-cooling wet-sleeve design and durability let it work harder and longer between maintenance. The MaxxForce DT is the ideal match for the RE Series, with its sturdy steel cage construction, one-piece roof bows, solid steel flooring and 16-gauge steel exterior panels. The RE Series is full of comfortable features for passengers and driver: Radio AM/FM with CD player, available Wi-Fi and Satellite TV, slip-proof floor, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, and ambient temperature controls and directional display â€“ plus a long list of optional equipment.
The RE Series is designed for maximum convenience in maintenance and servicing. Daily inspections are made easy from the rear of the bus with the side-mounted radiator and rear-facing fluid checkpoints. Two engine access doors provide side and rear engine access. A simplified flasher panel allows easy inspection and servicing. The instruments are fully electronic and self-testing, with visual and audible alarms. And even the battery box slides out on nylon rollers. As with every bus we make, IC Bus has you covered throughout the entire ownership experience with our complete bus diagnostic checkup computer system, an expansive parts distribution system and an unmatched dealer network for 24/7 support.
Taking care of you every step of the way. Thatâ€™s the IC Bus difference.
