Having a rugged, reliable MaxxForceÂ® DT diesel engine located in the rear of the bus gives you many advantages. It reduces noise for the driver, allows a better view of students entering and exiting, and provides easy access to engine components like the side-mounted radiator and rear-facing fluid check points. The MaxxForce DT provides up to 285 hp and 860 lb-ft of pull, so if you need to transport up to 84 students comfortably, the IC Bus RE Series has you covered.
We moved the driver seat forward, outboard and upward, so he or she is in the perfect position for optimum forward, side and rear visibility. For added safety and driver convenience, we gave the RE Series visual and audible alarms for low fuel, oil, voltage, coolant and high temperature, plus cruise control, available tilt and telescoping steering column and optional push-button shift. And its fully-integrated body, chassis and engine give the RE Series maximum strength and durability.
Mrs. Hartwell believes itâ€™s important that her 5th grade class gets the opportunity to explore the world outside of a classroom. Even if that world lived thousands of years ago. Which is why she needs a bus that can bring all 84 of her students across town safely. IC Bus is delighted to take classes like Mrs. Hartwellâ€™s to history museums, science centers and planetariums. Theyâ€™re not only educational; theyâ€™re unforgettable. Because at IC Bus, we believe the only way to build a better bus, is to understand what goes into one.
For student convenience, the RE Series provides 78â€ of interior headroom and the widest entry door in the industry. For comfort, thereâ€™s available factory-installed IC Air, patented Dynalastic engine mounts, soft ride suspension, and generous sound-absorbing material. As with all our buses, 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.
With its weight-saving, rear-mounted 210-285 hp MaxxForceÂ® DT wet-sleeve diesel engine, the RE Series carries up to 84 students and provides maintainers with the access they deserve.
