The W62 truck (chassis by Workhorse, bodies by Morgan Olson or Utilimaster) extends the capacity of the company’s walk-in lineup with 19,500- and 23,500-pound GVWR models. It uses GM’s 8.1-l Vortec™ V8 gasoline engine mated to the five-speed Allison 1000HS (for 19,500-pound GVWR) or Allison 2200HS (for 23,500-pound GVWR) transmission. The truck comes with wheelbases of 157, 178, 190, 208, and 218 inches. One feature of the truck is the Meritor Quadraulic brakes, four-wheel disc brakes with four pistons at each caliper. The braking system also includes WABCO four-channel ABS system with full J-1939 diagnostic capability. The W62 also uses two-leaf parabolic springs coupled with premium gas shock absorbers, for good ride quality, lighter chassis, and more payload capacity. The instrument cluster has an info center for the truck, tilt steering column, and custom 15-1/2-inch steering wheel (18-inch optional), cruise control, and brake/transmission/shift interlock. A remote shift gear is mounted on the dashboard, as is the ignition keyhole.
