Motorhome chassis manufacturer Workhorse Custom has increased its
powertrain warranty coverage. Workhorse will warranty its powertrains on
gas motorhome chassis, beginning with 2007 chassis models, for 100,000
miles or five years, whichever comes first. Production of 2007 platforms
began in July 2006.
Workhorse uses General Motors powertrains for its gas chassis.
That change applies to the popular Chevy-Workhorse 14,050-pound,
gross-vehicle-weight-rated (gvwr) Class C chassis for motorhomes.
Workhorse Class A gas chassis all use GM’s 8.1L Vortec engine, with the
exception of the W16/18 model (16,000- and 18,000-pound gvwr), where the
8.1L engine is an option to the standard 6.0L Vortec. This upgrade
applies to Workhorse’s W16/18, W20/22, W24/25.5 and the new Workhorse
UFO gas chassis.
The extended warranty covers the engine, transmission and
rear-axle assembly. It includes the Hydramatic 4L85-E or 4L80-E
transmissions used with W16/18 chassis. The Allison transmissions used
with the other models will continue to be covered by Allison’s five-year
or 200,000-mile warranty.
All other Workhorse parts and components supplied or installed
by Workhorse will continue to be covered as before by Workhorse’s
limited three-year/36,000 mile warranty.
