Navistar continues commitment to vocational segments with new product offerings
March 10, 2014: Navistar announced it continues to invest in its severe service and medium-duty product lines by expanding vehicle enhancements and powertrain choices on International brand vocational truck models. In addition, the company will add selective catalytic reduction (SCR) emissions technology to its high horsepower mid-range engines starting this summer.
The company’s medium-duty SCR transition began in September 2013 with the International DuraStar and the Cummins ISB 6.7 liter engine. MaxxForce 9 and MaxxForce 10 engines with SCR will be available exclusively on the International DuraStar and International WorkStar vehicles.
“Our medium-duty transition to SCR started strong with our DuraStar with Cummins ISB6.7 and we have high expectations for this chassis/engine combination as we see the construction market continue to rebound,” said Bill Kozek, President, North America Truck and Parts, Navistar. “We also know a number of our customers require more horsepower and torque and we’re pleased to offer these customers an expanded engine choice by adding SCR to our 9-liter and 10-liter engines.”
