Spartan Fire® Introduces the New FC-94™ Purpose-Built Chassis Specifically Designed to Meet Fire Departments’ Essential Requirements

CHARLOTTE, MI – December 10, 2020 – Spartan Fire, LLC, a subsidiary of REV Group®, and leading manufacturer of fire apparatus introduces the new purpose-built FC-94, developed specifically for the North American fire service and is available industry-wide. Designed as a better fit to an all-purpose conventional commercial chassis, the new Spartan FC-94 offers fire departments a cab and chassis specifically designed to meet their specific mission critical requirements.

Built NFPA compliant, the all-aluminum 94” wide cab provides a more spacious interior with multiple seat configurations and internal storage options.  In addition, the FC-94 chassis steering cramp angle and shorter wheelbases provide a superior turning radius and increased maneuverability, ideal when responding to emergencies. Compared to a commercial chassis, the new Spartan FC-94 delivers a balanced combination of functionality, reliability, and safety at an affordable price point.

“Delivering a purpose-built cab and chassis has been in Spartan’s DNA for over 45 years,” said Kent Tyler, President for REV Fire Group. “Since REV Group’s acquisition of Spartan, we have diligently pursued an innovative alternative to traditional commercial chassis products for the fire service. We are excited to add the FC-94 to our product offering which will allow more departments to experience the safety, comfort, and performance of a Spartan Fire Chassis within given budget requirements.”
