Spartan’s Furion Taking Off

Spartan Chassis, Inc., a subsidiary of Spartan Motors, Inc., has 14 more Furion cab/chassis units in the build schedule to be completed by the end of 2008 for delivery to OEMs and end-users around the U.S. and Canada.

Unveiled in August 2007, the Furion was designed specifically as an emergency rescue vehicle that would fall into the affordable range for virtually all fire departments. The Michigan-based manufacturer has processed and built 16 Furion cab/chassis units since its introduction.

"Fire departments are increasingly recognizing the value of purchasing a cab and chassis specifically designed for front-line service with the latest in safety, durability and performance enhancements. Departments can easily configure the Spartan Furion to maximize their response to the diverse calls they receive without compromising their budget," said Richard Schalter, president of Spartan Chassis.

The Furion features:

  • A 94-inch stamped galvanized steel 4-door tilt cab

  • Fully-dipped E-coated cab for corrosion protection

  • 50 degree front axle cramp angle for maximum maneuverability

  • Multiple seating options for up to 6 occupants and equipment

  • Superior visibility with a one piece, 3,265 sq inch windshield
