Learn More About Buses:MCI's J4500

MCI’s J4500, one of the United States’s best-selling coaches, was created in 2001 as an alternative to the manufacturer’s now-discontinued E-series, which was known as MCI’s most luxurious line of coaches. The J4500 was designed to be as attractive as the E-series coaches, but with less complex and therefore less expensive features.

This coach’s interior trim and lighting are designed specifically to make each bus feel more spacious (though it does hold the distinction of housing the largest interior floor space of any motorcoach in the industry). Cosmetically, the coach can be altered to match the style of the user, whether they want to use their company’s brand colors or simply use the lights to illuminate the interior in their favorite color.

Some more highlights of the J4500 include:
  • Best seating capacity in the industry
  • E-fan system that boosts fuel efficiency
  • Scratch- and smudge-resistant handrails and parcel rack doors
  • Stainless steel frame for long-term durability
  • Stainless steel tubing in critical areas for extra strength
  • Military-grade electrical systems with minimal wiring
  • Sleek and comfortable seating designs
  • ½-inch more legroom than the J-series’s closest competitor
  • Spiral entry with illuminated stairs and illuminated handrails
  • Dimmable ceiling lights with six color options (plus white)
  • LED entryway “puddle light” that can project a customized logo
  • Wide-screen HD monitors
Technical specs of the J4500 include:
  • Weight: 54,000 lbs
  • Width: 102 in.
  • Length: 45.58 f
  • Seats: 60
  • Luggage compartment volume: 573 Cu. ft.
