The new MCI J3500 is the company’s latest debut to complement its best-selling J4500 recently redesigned with increased space and passenger comfort. The J3500 member of MCI’s new “J-Series” family of coaches that features all the styling and comfort hallmarks of the J4500, with seating for up to 44 passengers, a powerful Cummins engine, shared J-coach components, and a turning radius of under 33 feet that makes it a natural for high-traffic situations that call for top maneuverability.

Gulf Coast Tours’ first J3500 comes equipped with a top-of-the-line four-monitor entertainment system, the 2017 EPA Cummins L9 with engine brake, three-point seatbelts, and the optional RGB interior lighting feature offering six pre-programmed colors (red, blue, green, cyan, magenta, and yellow) plus white for an enhanced customer branding experience.

Gulf Coast Tours chose the 40-seat configuration to give high school, college and university athletes the best legroom in this new, smaller coach configuration.
