The truck made between 1993-2002 is a popular generation.
It features a truck-like structure, the headlight is a projector type that was installed for the
first time, the door outer handle has been changed to a vertical flap type, and the window on the
passenger seat side had a full model change in 1992 which was used in the 2nd generation. The design
is so popular that it will be followed by the 7th generation later.

As an easy way to identify the body type, if there is a "B" at the end of the model, it means flat,
and if there is a D like "BD", it means a dump!
ex) FE517BD is a dump
Both Dump and Flat body are popular, and for Dump, FE51CBD and FE517BD are popular. Both models were
made after the minor changes in 1999, and the design performance is reliable.
For flat bodies, FE52CE and FE648E are popular. The FE648E was released in the early days, and has a
large loading capacity of 3 tons and is equipped with a 4D35 engine.
If you look closely, Canter has many choices, and there are various body types such as 2t, 3t, flat,
dump truck, etc.
Especially in Africa, dump trucks are very popular and demand is expanding. There are many other
options such as refrigerate cars.
The most popular engine installed in the 6th generation Canter is the 4D33 engine. The model of the
engine changes depending on the tonnage and the type of engine. At first glance, the engine code is
complicated, but in reality, each number has a meaning. The table below introduces the engine code
installed in the 6th generation Canter. Please refer to it when purchasing!
List of engines installed in the 6th generation Canter
Dump trucks can be divided into two types. One is "High deck". This is a vehicle with a high height
from the ground to the loading platform, making it a very popular body type suitable for driving on
rough roads. The second is a "Low deck", which has a lower loading platform. Compared to a
high-floor car, there are disadvantages such as vibration being transmitted more strongly on rough
roads, but conversely, if you are not particular about it, you can purchase it on a low budget.
FE51CBD High deck
FE51DC Low deck
As an easy way to understand , you can check whether the spring is above the differential or below
the differential in the tire picture above. In addition, it can be judged from the viewpoint of the
model, and if the 4th digit is 0, the spring is definitely the body under the differential if it is
the easiest to understand.
About loading capacity
Another way to divide is the load capacity.
Please pay attention to the model as a way to distinguish the load capacity. When the 4th digit of
the model code is 0 or 1, it is 1t when the code is 2, it is 2t. When the code is 3, basically it is
2t but sometimes they have 3t.

change so much, so I think that many people may be confused with the Canter.

price when comparing the new car price and the used price. After all, as mentioned above, the Canter
is equipped with a popular model of engine and its performance is also popular worldwide.
