2022 Blue Bird Propane School Buses Available for Order
Blue Bird began production of its 2022 Blue Bird Vision propane school buses, which integrate ROUSH CleanTech’s Gen 5 propane autogas fuel system and Ford’s 7.3-liter V-8 engine. Innovations for the Gen 5 fuel system include stronger and lighter forged fuel rails and unique routing that keeps the engine-fuel distribution organized, according to ROUSH CleanTech. Gen 5 is certified to California Air Resources Board’s optional low nitrogen oxide emissions standard of 0.05 grams per brake horsepower-hour. It also reduces nitrogen oxides and greenhouse gas emissions, and can operate on renewable propane, which further reduces emissions and carbon levels.
