Delaware Express recently added four new MCI 2019 J4500 models outfitted to please passengers, drivers, and mechanics.

Delaware’s newest J4500s feature a 56-passenger configuration with plush leather seating, power outlets, and Wi-Fi. Delaware has also added tray tables behind every upgraded leather seat because the company is testing ala carte box lunches on charters to upcoming auto and flower shows this year.

The coaches also come equipped with Detroit Diesel engines, preferred by Delaware for telematics capabilities used to signal maintenance requirements such as DPF regeneration notifications and more. A 360-degree camera system and MCI’s ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) from Bendix Fusion were also part of the order.

Bendix Fusion is a next-generation collision mitigation system that integrates a forward-facing camera with vehicle recognition software to detect moving and stationary objects. The system offers lane departure warnings and traffic sign recognition that all together helps the driver process speed limits and road obstacles.

Delaware Express customers also prize legroom and comfort. With a roster of clients that range from professional teams in nearly every sport including Philadelphia Union Soccer to the athletic department at the University of Delaware, the operation orders its coaches with the roomiest seat configurations. To better manage relationships and schedules with athletic clients, teams are often assigned their own motorcoach and driver.
