The Leader in Alternative Fuels School Buses - Electric, Propane, Gas and CNG

Blue Bird All American RE (Rear Engine) Diesel

The All American Rear Engine (RE) school bus is an extension Blue Bird's legacy of leadership by setting new industry standards for driver ergonomics, efficiency, safety, serviceability, passenger comfort and life-cycle value. The engine's rear location provides exceptional serviceability, allows for extra cooling and consequently higher power ratings.

The All American RE Diesel bus features:

  • Exceptional driver-forward visibility
  • Best-in-class turning radius
  • Unique mirror systems - improving driver awareness and increasing child safety
  • 90% cleaner emissions than in 2006
  • Ultra-low sulfur fuel usage

Adding to health protection for students and improved air quality in communities, the All American FE Diesel includes proven selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology.

In the SCR system, nitrous oxide gas is injected with diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), which reacts with the catalyst. That reaction breaks the nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions down into harmless nitrogen and water vapor. These components are a pure and natural part of the air we breathe. The nitrogen and water vapor then pass harmlessly through the tailpipe.
