Canter 8.55T

Clear Message. The Canter 8.55T.

The FUSO Canter 8.55 t offers an outstanding payload balance with its almost 6 t chassis load capacity and a permissible gross train weight (GVW) of up to 12.05 t.

The Canter 8.55 t offers the typical compact dimensions of a light truck, which make it agile and easy to manoeuvre. Moreover, depending on the configuration, it has an extremely low tare weight – 2,565 kg with a wheelbase of 3,400 mm – without sacrificing stability.

This is ensured by its robust steel ladder frame, which, with a frame width of 850 mm that is continuous across all models, enables a chassis load capacity of almost 6 t and ensures greater roll stability. High maximum axle loads – 3,100 kg on the front axle and up to 5,800 kg on the rear axle – complete the solid design of the Canter 8.55 t.

Due to its advantageous front-wheel drive design, the Canter 8.55 t has the most compact overall dimensions comparatively. Especially with longer body dimensions – maximum 7.2 m – a definite advantage over vans with a nose. The Canter 8.55 t offers a clear benefit in manoeuvrability with just as many – up to 15 – pallet spaces. Additionally, the Canter 8.55 t can offer up to 3.5 t towing capacity.

In the Canter 8.55 t, the DUONIC® 2.0 dual-clutch transmission is fitted as standard. It stands for a comfortable driving experience and smooth gearshifts without tractive effort interruption.
