Prevost features X3-45 Commuter Coach

Posted on October 4, 2011

Prevost is featuring its X3-45 Commuter Coach, designed from the Prevost platform known for durability, reliability and lifetime value, at EXPO in Booth #1933.

The X3-45 coaches, which have been 12-Year Structural Integrity Tested, are constructed to be used in a demanding commuter application that requires reliable vehicle performance.

The X3-45 coaches will include Volvo D13 engines and Allison transmissions. The Volvo D13 engine is the only engine platform in the industry that has been tested with years of real-world road conditions. Volvo's D13 engine has superior low-end performance and a smooth, quiet operation, according to Prevost.

The coach is designed for easy service and maintenance with an Advanced Multiplex System that is user-friendly and offers fast troubleshooting and quick and accurate diagnosis of vital components. Everything you need to know appears right on the dashboard display in textual format — no more code book or external readout modules. Service is simple because scheduled maintenance components are conveniently located in easy to access compartments.

Keeping passengers safe is a priority, and Prevost has packed the X3-45 Commuter Coach with many options that are designed to make these coaches the safest on the road, including the Prevost Electronic Stability Program, which is the first system with rollover and under/over-steer protection and electronically compensates for quick reactions in adverse conditions.

In addition, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System has an integrated dashboard display with real-time information that helps the driver monitor tire temperature and pressure and also helps to detect inner drive tire failures. while the Prevost Fire Suppression System uses a linear thermal detector and an optical infrared to monitor the engine compartment and auxiliary heater and provides audible and visual warnings to the driver in case of an incident.
