THE NEW 2017 GM33 F-550 Luxury Bus
Built on the All-New 2017 Ford F-550
The newly redesigned 2017 Ford F-550 GM33 luxury bus takes design, quality and performance to the next level
To meet the dynamic demands of the ever-evolving ground transportation industry, operators need to bring their A-game each and every time. This means creating a first-class service experience for all of the passengers on every airport transfer, bus charter and group movements. To help you turn clients into loyal fans and your business into a bulletproof brand, Grech Motors builds buses designed to make a lasting impact through beauty, quality and longevity. The new GM33 is our most recent example, taking the best of the Grech Motors brand -- the standard luxury features, the high-strength cage, the top-tier construction and craftsmanship -- and combining it with Ford's new, redesigned F-550 chassis. Not only did Ford give the new 2017 F-550 a facelift featuring a sleeker cab and front grill, it also gave it more muscle. Let's look at a few of the new features of the 2017 Ford F-550 chassis.
What's New in the 2017 Ford F-550 Chassis?
Fully Boxed Under-Cab and C-Channel Aft-of-Cab Frame
Ford’s new 2017 F-550 chassis features an all-new fully boxed under-cab and C-channel aft-of-cab frame made of 95 percent high-strength steel with up to 10 crossmembers (8 through-welded). Torsional rigidity is eight times greater than the previous design.
Stronger Axles, Chassis and Driveline Components
In addition to the stronger frame, the 2017 Ford F-550 chassis also features a suspension, brakes, driveline, transfer case and axles that are larger and heftier for greater strength and capability. The components of the 4-wheel anti-lock brakes feature the largest rotors in class, which increases their longevity and maximizes their stopping power.
Combined with Grech Motors’ high-strength steel bus cage, the new 2017 GM33 F-550 luxury bus is the safest, most comfortable and best-looking midsize bus on the market.
