    Wow, I hadn't noticed that before. Must be something new for this year(?). I notice they're calling them Canter now. They've been doing that for some time in Europe where they actually go down even smaller into 1/2 ton I think. I see all models now use the 3.0 liter, 4 cylinder engine, so maybe the 6 cylinder engine used in the FK and FM couldn't make the new Tier regulations.
