Liberty Coach Now Building Luxury Motor Coaches with High Performance, More Energy Efficient Volvo Engines

CHICAGO and STUART, Fla., Aug. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Luxury motor coach manufacturer Liberty Coach is pleased to introduce its first Volvo-equipped Liberty Coach, The Elegant Lady 2012. After taking the new motor coach on a long weekend test drive to the Florida Keys from their Stuart showroom and service center, Liberty Coach Vice President Frank Konigseder felt very pleased with its performance.

With a 2011 Ford Explorer in tow, Konigseder took the 600-mile trip on Florida's major highways and rural routes. And although the route was without any steep grades, there were sections that required passing at highway speeds.  Konigseder was impressed by the pulling power of the 2012 Volvo-equipped motor coach as well as the improved fuel efficiency. He also reported that cruising was much quieter at high speeds, and in fact, the engine didn't need to work quite as hard to achieve a speed of 70 mph.

The only drawback to the Volvo-equipped coach, if any, according to Konigseder, is that there is a loss of space in the rear interior because of new 2010 EPA guidelines requiring exhaust systems and diesel fuel to be maintained in a more environmentally sensitive manner.  Read the complete review of Liberty's Volvo-equipped motor coach.

"We are striving to be a greener world," Konigseder said, "and as long as we can maintain or increase the performance of the finished product, I can live with the minor inconveniences associated with it."
