LED headlights now standard on International ProStar

LISLE, Ill. -- Navistar International has announced Truck-Lite’s LED headlights are now standard on its International ProStar Class 8 on-highway trucks.



LISLE, Ill. — Navistar International has announced Truck-Lite’s LED headlights are now standard on its International ProStar Class 8 on-highway trucks.

“LED headlamps offer significantly longer life over traditional halogen lamps while also emitting a more natural light than improves visibility for the driver,” said Steve Gilligan, vice-president, product planning and information, Navistar. “LED lights have been an option on the International ProStar for several months and we are excited about making the solution standard equipment on our ProStar model.”

LED headlights emit a light colour that more closely resembles daylight, reducing driver fatigue and eye strain. The lights also provide a more powerful beam that better illuminates the road and roadsides. A custom coating will be applied to the lens on the ProStar to decrease the haze and dimming common with traditional headlights, International announced.

LEDs also draw less power than halogen lamps, extending the life of the lights and lowering maintenance costs.
