HDX = Heavy duty X ... replaced ER and WestCoast
EFX = Engine Front X ... to bring the EF inline with the HD.
These buses, while awesome, are generally too new for us although a WestCoast or ER up to around 2003 would be about the best bus you could buy if you want a full-size bus.
The WestCoast, specifically, was built to compete with Crown and Gillig, and it did so very well.
