Given that Thomas Buses is a sister company to Freightliner, I have to believe the Baby Detroit will eventually become school bus power: the FL M2 106 chassis is pretty similar to the Thomas C2 Saf-T-Liner.
I wonder if this little "four banger" eventually will find its way into transit buses?
The old Detroit Diesel Series 50's from some years ago were 4-cylinder units that were widely used in transits, so maybe the new kid will follow suit.

Impressive power from this new engine...the old DD 50 Series, was a lot larger...8.5 liters. Besides transit buses, it also powered later versions of the MCI MC-12...
