Fuso Canter FE85 Review
Fuso Canter FE85 Overview
The Fuso Canter FE85 is the biggest truck from the light-duty trucks lineup of Fuso in the Philippines. This truck, which is essentially a long-wheelbase version of the Canter FE84 with advanced mechanicals and same design in and out, is a 6-wheeler and 18-footer truck which weighs 8.2 tons. The Fuso Canter FE85 is being offered in the Philippines in just one paint shade of white.
Fuso Canter FE85 Interior
The interior cabin of the Fuso Canter FE85 too is exactly the same as that of the Fuso Canter FE84. This again is not a bad thing at all, as despite having no additional features over the FE84, this cabin still is the most modern-looking one in the segment of full spec light-duty trucks.
The driver’s cockpit of the Fuso Canter FE85 is quite detailed with the presence of a large four-spoke steering wheel, which is both tilt and telescopic adjustable, as well as a large rectangular all analog instrument console behind it. The upper corners of the instrument console come with rectangular AC vents.
The center console of the dashboard of the Fuso Canter FE85 is quite detailed and feature-rich, with the vertical placement of a 1-DIN audio system, controls for the manual AC and rectangular storage space, one over the above. The bottom-most portion of the center console has a panel, which houses the transmission lever.
Fuso Canter FE85 Exterior
The Fuso Canter FE85 wears the same design on the outside as the smaller Canter FE73 and Canter FE84 trucks. This is not a big thing to complain about considering the fact that the Canter series trucks are one of the most modern-looking commercial trucks out there. However, the Fuso Canter FE85 could have had a couple of distinguishing design elements to make it look different than the rest, being it the flagship truck in the lineup.
The upper half of the front fascia of the Fuso Canter FE85 has a big windshield which is slightly curved and gets thin rubber covering on all of its sides. This windshield is assisted here by two long rearview mirrors, which are mounted on the lower edges of the front windscreen and give a great view of what’s behind.
Below the front windscreen, the lower half of the Fuso Canter FE84 has a modern-looking fascia, the main highlight of which is the bold and wide ‘Fuso’ lettering and a trapezoidal grille placed below it. This grille, which has rounded lower edges, gets a sleek chrome garnish in the middle of it.
At the lower corners of the front stance of the Fuso Canter FE85 are big trapezoidal headlamps, which are made up of rectangular main headlamp at the bottom and a curved housing for turn indicator at the top.
On the sides, the Fuso Canter FE85 gets big windows, the size of which is further accentuated by the sleek and tapering down the waistline. The most noteworthy element of the side profile has to be the broad curve, which starts to flow from the edge of the headlamp to the edge of the door at the back, passing through the door handles.
Fuso Canter FE85 Ride & Handling
The Fuso Canter FE84 has been fitted with a sturdy-in-feel suspension setup of laminated leaf springs at both the ends. To keep the body roll and pitching movement of the truck in check, the front suspension has been accompanied with stabilizer. The Fuso Canter FE85 is blessed with dual circuit hydraulic main brakes with Vacuum Servo Assistance, along with auxiliary exhaust brakes.
Fuso Canter FE85 Engine & Fuel Consumption
The Fuso Canter FE84 has been equipped with a 4.9-litre inline-four diesel, which here is coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox. This engine is the biggest and most powerful engine in the light-duty trucks lineup from Fuso, with its maximum power rated at 179 PS and peak torque rated at 530 Nm.
Fuso Canter FE85 Braking & Safety
Despite being the biggest light-duty truck in its lineup, the Fuso Canter FE85 packs in only the bare essentials in the name of safety, with the truck getting only three-point seatbelts, side-impact beams and collapsible steering wheel.
Fuso Canter FE85 Verdict
The bigger and more powerful engine, as well as longer wheelbase, surely gives the Fuso Canter FE85 an advantage over the rest of its smaller siblings in the form of better load-carrying capacity as well as stronger road presence comparable to a medium-duty truck.
