Performance on your terms.
A fire truck designed and built for one department may not be
the best configuration for another. So Pierce is partnering the
new VelocityTM chassis with the ImpelTM, a more price-conscious
base design with many of the advantages and options available
on the Velocity chassis. Impel begins with a base model
configuration, utilizing a medium-block engine to deliver
outstanding performance efficiency. The Impel includes default
half doors, a conventional console configuration, round headlight
bezels, optional chrome grille and a painted front end.
As part of the new generation of chassis,
Impel offers five key advances:
More Interior Space
More headroom, legroom and floor space; simply more space
overall for firefighters to maneuver quickly and efficiently.
Storage and Clutter Management
Integrated compartments keep books, manuals, radios and other
items within easy reach, but out of the way. The rotomolded
console enhances the functional organization of
the cab and is so strong it takes any abuse you give it.
Improved Visibility
With Impel’s single, bonded windshield, you get substantially
better visibility of the road, traffic and pedestrians.
Safety and Seats
The new Pierce PS6™ seats include double-length seat belts
and dual retractors, improved cushions and lumbar support.
Pierce also offers the industry’s first frontal air bags to keep
firefighters safer. Hands-free SCBA holders and integrated side
air curtains are optional.
Easier Maintenance
The Impel gives quick and easy access through both
the engine tunnel and through its fast access service tilt front
hood - designed to encourage routine preventative maintenance,
extending the life of the vehicle. It also includes Pierce's
exclusive tube-in-rubber transmission cooler, which is more
durable than conventional solutions and comes with a 3-year,
$10,000 collateral damage warranty and 5-year cooler warranty.
