The renowned durability and performance of the FUSO FJ make it a substantial investment in ensuring efficient and secure transportation for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and their families, especially during calamities. The Fuso FJ is equipped with a robust in-line six 6.4-liter turbocharged diesel engine, generating 235 hp and an impressive 850 Nm of torque. Standard specifications include reverse Elliot axles at the front and a fully floating axle at the rear. The suspension system consists of a semi-elliptic with auxiliary springs at the front and a semi-elliptic with auxiliary springs at the rear. These components allow the FJ to take a considerable amount of punishment and still keep going. The FJ truck for the OWWA is outfitted with a kitchen, a bathroom, a sleeping area, and Wi-Fi.


At the event, Administrator Arnell Ignacio conveyed appreciation for the accomplished product turnover. These vehicles are anticipated to be strategically stationed in vital locations across Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, ready to be swiftly deployed to offer relief assistance to OFWs and their families in times of calamities.
