REV BUS GROUP TO DISPLAY FIVE NEW BUS MODELS AT INDIANAPOLIS EXPO

Featuring one of the largest BusCon 2016 booths, REV Group will display its most exciting and innovative bus lineups yet at Booth #727. During the Sept. 19-21 expo at the Indiana Convention Center, REV will announce the unveiling of the all-new World Trans bus brand, highlight Champion’s innovative medium-duty, low-floor transit bus on a cutaway Ford F-550 chassis and showcase the latest innovations in Krystal and Federal’s luxury bus lineup.

Here’s a glance at the highlights you’ll find at this 4,250 sq. ft. booth:

CHAMPION TO DEBUT MEDIUM-DUTY, LOW-FLOOR BUS ON FORD F-550

Champion will unveil the LF Transport® F-550, the first-ever low-floor transit bus to be built on a heavy-duty cutaway Ford F-550 chassis. The new LF Transport raises the bar in cutaway low-floor capacity, featuring up to 27 passengers on select configurations. The bus is Ford QVM certified to maintain all OEM warranties and also offers the first-ever transit front cap with large panoramic forward observation windows. Click here for more LF Transport details. Champion brand manager Kurt Nagy will be available for one-on-one interviews.

REV GEARS UP FOR OFFICIAL WORLD TRANS BRAND UNVEILING

REV will officially unveil World Trans, a new transit bus brand after a soft launch of its narrow-body T-Series model at the APTA Bus & Paratransit Conference in May. REV will showcase the T-Series, built on a Ford transit cutaway chassis, and the never-seen-before E-Series, built on the Ford E-350/450 at BusCon. In October, World Trans will release the G Series on the Chevy G3500/4500. Click here for more brand details. World Trans brand manager Darrin Hendrixson will be available for one-one-one interviews.

KRYSTAL AND FEDERAL SHOWCASE NEW DESIGNS

The 2017 Krystal luxury bus rolls to BusCon with a whole new REVamped look, both inside and out. The interior features a drop-down TV in the front, plus upgraded luggage racks with monitors, while a custom audio/visual cabinet hides electronics and a trash receptacle. The Krystal exterior features a new fiberglass cap with panoramic forward observation windows. Meanwhile, Federal will showcase a reimagined front cap slope, featuring a standard front-viewing window. Click here for more model details. Federal and Krystal Brand Manager Larry Mabery will be available for one-on-one interviews.

REV ALSO DISPLAYS THE REV-BRANDED PHOENIX GRAND PRIX RACE CAR

In addition to Bus Group’s newest products, the REV booth will feature the REV-branded No. 3 Chevrolet that three-time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves drove during this year’s Phoenix Grand Prix. The famed driver will stop by the booth from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Sept. 21 to sign autographs and participate in a special REV raffle.
