MCI delivers new J4500 to Phoenix

Posted on July 19, 2012

Phoenix-based Tour West America took delivery of a new J4500 from Motor Coach Industries Inc. (MCI).

Tour West America’s new J4500 comes equipped with a Cummins engine featuring clean-diesel technology and an Allison transmission for near-zero emissions. The J4500 also has electronic stability control, fire suppression equipment and tire monitoring system. Tour West America added optional three-point passenger seat belts.

Founded in 1983 in Yuma, Arizona, Tour West America got its start running fun coach trips for the increasing number of winter visitors enjoying the desert southwest. Three years later Shelbo and Bj Brooks acquired the company, eventually moving its headquarters to Phoenix and building the business to a fleet of 15 coaches, two mini-coaches and a shuttle bus.
