Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Mitsubishi FUSO Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) has unveiled a new range of trucks at the Indonesia International Motor Show 2014 (IIMS 2014).

The new FJ 25-tonne and FI 12-tonne range, exported from India, will accompany the popular Canter (or Colt Diesel) range in the Indonesian market, and offer an even wider coverage for the Japanese brand.
