For 2013, the J4500 features many model-year improvements, including new LED headlights, improved lighting throughout, a taller appearance and a host of performance updates including a  more fuel-efficient, clean-diesel powertrain system. The coach also includes a host of safety features, including electronic stability control, an improved tire-pressure monitoring system and fire-suppression technology.
