LONGVIEW, Texas, May 27, 2009 -- Capacity of Texas, a leading manufacturer of terminal tractors worldwide, announced today the availability of the Navistar MaxxForce 7 Diesel Engine in their terminal tractor product line beginning this fall. The Navistar MaxxForce 7 engine utilizes the MaxxForce Advanced Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) which provides 2010 emissions compliance using technology proven on MaxxForce engines since 2007.

The agreement with Navistar to supply the MaxxForce 7, V-8 diesel engine furthers Capacity's engine offerings (Diesel, LP, CNG, LNG and Hybrid/Electric) and continues their tradition of engineering excellence by providing the most complete line terminal tractors in the industry.

"Capacity can be confident that our MaxxForce engines will provide the quality, reliability and clean diesel power that is needed in this application." said Eric Tech, Vice President and General Manager for Navistar Engine Group, "We are glad that customers like Capacity recognize and choose to benefit from MaxxForce Advanced EGR, the customer friendly solution for meeting 2010 emission compliance."
