The 3-L, four-cylinder 4P10 diesel engine in Mitsubishi Fuso's FG4X4 cabover truck (161 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque) makes nearly 4 percent more power than previous FG models. The lightweight frame and other weight-reducing strategies allow upgrading to the new DUONIC six-speed dual-clutch transmission while actually reducing curb weight to 5,975 lb. For example, Fuso says the Canter FG4X4 weighs 1,750 lbs. less than the comparable Ford F450. Fuso claims the manually locking front hubs and standard six-speed transmission stretch the Canter FG4X4's two-wheel-drive, on-road fuel economy into the 14- to 17-mpg range.
