LISLE, Ill. -- Navistar announced this morning that it has begun shipping International DuraStar trucks with the Cummins ISB 6.7-litre engine.

The first such trucks were shipped from the company’s Escobedo, Mexico assembly plant. Navistar says offering the ISB in the DuraStar resulted in orders for more than 4,500 medium-duty trucks.

“The addition of the ISB to our portfolio in early September was the driving factor in achieving, just weeks later, our best Class 6/7 order month in two years,” said Bill Kozek, Navistar president, North America Truck and Parts. “Today we have received orders for more than 4,500 DuraStar units, and with initial customers such as Budget Truck Rental, Idealease and Penske, we are poised to regain market share in the medium-duty segment.”
