Birmingham, Alabama -- Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. (MFTA), announces the newest FUSO Sales, Service and Parts center at Birmingham Freightliner in Birmingham, Alabama. This marks the  third  FUSO  franchise  for  Birmingham  Freightliner’s  parent  company,  Peach  State  Truck  Center.

This is the second FUSO franchise in the State of Alabama.

“We  are  very  excited  that  another  Peach State  Truck  Center location is  adding the FUSO brand,” said Peter Young, director of Dealer Network Development, Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. “Birmingham Freightliner is an outstanding champion of Daimler truck brands, and we are confident new  FUSO  customers  will  see  superior  customer  service  from  this  Birmingham  location.”

With the addition of medium-duty FUSO trucks to its product portfolio, Birmingham Freightliner now offers a full line-up of Class 3 to Class 8 trucks. FUSO trucks will expand the powertrain selection to include  a  gasoline  engine  option  along  with  Freightliner’s  diesel  powertrains.  FUSO  is  currently  the only OEM with a cabover Class 5 gasoline-powered truck on the market.
