Prior to delivery, each chassis undergoes rigorous testing by the largest full-time research and development team of any fire truck manufacturer in North America. More firefighters rely on a Pierce chassis than any other because when it comes to performance, a Pierce chassis will ride, handle, stop, and set up at the scene better than any other out there.

City life isn’t easy. Good thing the Arrow XT chassis is engineered with a utilitarian approach that will meet the needs of both the big city and the rural fire departments.
Designed and built with an emphasis on heavy-duty, the Arrow XT meets the demands of any high volume department with its rugged and dependable chassis and an all-business cab interior.
Your world revolves around constant preparation. The Pierce Dash CF is the solution. The Dash CF apparatus features the PUC™ platform and cab forward configuration for more space up front and enhanced visibility for all firefighters.
The result: Drastically improved space for both driver and officer, lower step heights, more storage options, a large windshield, and drop daylight windows for better visibility and scene assessment.
Proven reliability returns. The Pierce Enforcer chassis is more capable than ever. With TAK-4® independent front suspension, your choice of two powerful engines and Pierce’s exclusive Command Zone™ multiplexed electrical system, the Enforcer performs like never before.
Plus you can take advantage of significant improvements in visibility, space, ergonomics, and serviceability.
A fire truck designed and built for one department will not be the best configuration for another.
It’s why Pierce partnered the Velocity® chassis with the Impel chassis – to offer an excellent value with a long list of standard features and available options.
The Pierce Quantum is the truck of choice for departments that demand the absolute best and nothing less. You’ll get the exact truck to meet your needs, loaded with the options that are vital to your success.
The bold style of the Quantum provides a low engine tunnel, creating a large open cab with greater visibility. Automatic stair steps provide a safer forward entry and exit from the cab. The Quantum performs like the world’s most technically advanced fire apparatus. Because it is.
Pierce’s timeless industry-standard chassis offers big improvements.
The Saber chassis was built with the value-driven firefighter in mind – delivering advanced visibility, greater space, improved ergonomics, and streamlined serviceability at an affordable price.
We asked firefighters to envision the ideal fire truck. Then we listened carefully. They told us about practical things that would make a truck easier to use. They identified space, storage, safety, maintenance, and performance improvements. We wrote it all down and turned a team of engineers loose with one goal: Make it happen.
More headroom, legroom, and floor space. Unobstructed visibility of the road, traffic, and pedestrians. Fast service and legendary Pierce safety. In every way, Velocity advances the way firefighters prepare and perform.
