School bus features heavy-duty propane engine, quieter ride

July 9, 2015 By    

IC Bus CE Series school bus IC Bus offers the CE Series school bus powered by the Power Solutions International (PSI) 8.8-liter propane engine. The CE series PSI heavy-duty propane engine offers a cleaner, quieter and more user friendly alternative to diesel that won’t sacrifice power, torque or durability, according to the companies. The PSI 8.8-liter propane engine is engineered to deliver the highest torque at the lowest speed. The design greatly benefits stop-and-start applications to allow immediate acceleration after stops and greater hill-climbing capability. This also eliminates excessive noise, heat and vibration associated with constant engine revving. The school buses are built with 16-gauge steel side rails and an 18,500-pound rear steel spring suspension standard. The bus includes a number of safety features, including an alarm system that requires drivers to disable an alarm at the rear of the bus before exiting, ensuring no student is overlooked. When service is required, the bus’ three-piece hood and exterior electrical panel makes maintenance trips quicker and easier.
