MCI delivers J4500 to Iowa

Posted on November 2, 2011

Expanding its level of luxury service, Decorah, Iowa-based Hawkeye Stages has added a third Motor Coach Industries (MCI) J4500 to its touring fleet. The new 2011 MCI J4500 features a highly upgraded interior chosen to woo discerning passengers.

Offering generous leg room, the coach’s 52 passenger seats are crafted of leather with fabric inserts for durability. The MCI coach, which is powered by a clean-diesel Cummins engine and ZF ASTronic transmission, also features a high-end Bosch entertainment system with 15-inch video monitors. Hawkeye Stages additionally installed its own 110-volt outlets and Wi-Fi.

The MCI J4500 also features standard safety and performance features including electronic stability control, automatic traction control, anti-lock braking and wide-ride suspension. SmartWave tire-pressure monitoring and an Amerex fire suppression system add an extra level of safety.

Hawkeye Stages, which bought its first MCI coach in 1980, runs a fleet of 26 coaches. With a history that goes back to 1954, the carrier offers charters and luxury tours from several locations in Iowa.
