2014 American Coach Revolution 42W

Setting New Limits in Design
Article Date: September, 2012


Driving the Revolution

Driving the Revolution was similar to most tag axle diesel pushers, which are known for excellent road manners. The Liberty chassis is rock solid and squarely supports the interlocking superstructure to prevent the body from racking back and forth in turns, which will minimize those squeaks and groans that typically occur once a coach has a number of miles on it. The front disc brakes and engine exhaust brake performed well in bringing the coach down to a stop in short order while the 450hp Cummins brought it right back up to speed with ease. Overall it looks like the Revolution is a winner.
