Upgrades that include easier access to electrical components and a new engine cover that allows belts and fluid levels to be checked easily are among the changes to Thomas Built Buses front-engine Type D product.

The product, formerly known as the EF, will now be called the Saf-T-Liner EFX to reflect the new product, the company said.

“We asked our customers how we could make a good bus even better,” said Jed Routh, product planning manager for Thomas Built Buses, a Daimler Trucks North America brand. “With the new EFX, you’ll see a sleek contemporary exterior like the rest of our buses, and a lot of features customers have been seeking.”

The redesigned bus will hold up to 90 passengers and includes additional cockpit storage. It is powered by a Cummins ISB diesel engine with SCR technology.

“The EF was already a rugged, reliable product,” said Routh. “By making it more aesthetically pleasing with a host of added features, it now appeals to both drivers and buyers.”
