IC Bus, Thor enter chassis agreement

Posted on March 23, 2010

IC Bus announced a new supply agreement with Thor Industries Inc. that will make IC Bus the exclusive provider of mid-size, cut-away chassis to Thor. As a result, Thor Industries' Champion, ElDorado National, General Coach and Goshen Coach vehicle brands will be built exclusively on the new IC Bus brand TC Series chassis.

The TC Series chassis will be powered exclusively by MaxxForce engines featuring Advanced EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) emissions technology. These engines use an in-cylinder approach to meeting EPA 2010 emissions with a goal of providing the most customer-friendly powertrain in terms of fuel economy, performance and overall ownership costs, according to IC.

"This agreement with IC Bus allows us to improve efficiencies, while providing our customers with best-in-class chassis and engine technologies," said Andrew Imanse, group president, Thor commercial bus division.

The TC Series chassis is available to customers in the U.S. and Canada and is supported by the IC Bus dealer network.
