We’re starting a series of articles highlighting some of the best package delivery trucks available. Today we’re going to shed some light on the MT-55 Freightliner Gas chassis.
While there are many options out there for P-1000 and P-1200 sized step vans, there are many qualities that make the Gas Freightliner MT-55 chassis superior to the rest. Below are some of the noteworthy qualities of the MT-55 gas chassis.
MT-55 Chassis: The strongest chassis in the P-1000 and P-1200 step van class. The 23,000 lb GVWR is the largest in it’s class and will hold up better than it’s competitors under a full load. The straight front axle reduces body roll and tire wear, saving you money on tires.
Transmission: The Allison Series 2200 transmission is used in many medium duty chassis’ trucks in the industry and is the standard for durability.
Engine: The 6.0 Liter small block is a bullet proof GM engine known for long lasting durability. This V8 configuration also provides better fuel economy when compared to 10 cylinder engines used in similar vehicles. Maintenance is much cheaper for a gas engine than a diesel.
I’m real happy with my gas Freightliners! They are durable, cheaper to maintain then the diesels and the mileage is only a little less than the diesels that I own. I wouldn’t mind getting another one soon. – Mitch from FXG – Carol Springs
