International to offer new engines for ’07
WARRENVILLE, Ill. – International will offer engines in the 11- to 13-litre range exclusively in its commercial trucks starting in fall 2007.
The International engines are the product of a strategic agreement between International and MAN Nutzfahrzeuge to collaborate on design, development, sourcing and manufacturing of components and systems for commercial trucks.
“Our strategy for enhancing and growing the engine business involves extending our engine product line,” said Jack Allen, president of International’s Engine Group.
“This is another significant step in our commitment to deliver great products for customers at a competitive cost structure.
“Our collaborative approach brings the advantages of integrating leading engine technologies with market and customer-specific expertise while leveraging scale in development and procurement.
“We are integrating the latest engine technologies and expertise from two long-time diesel leaders.
“Together, we have more than 180 years of diesel engine experience, going all the way back to when Rudolf Diesel developed the first diesel engine at MAN in 1893,” Allen said.
International will continue to offer the current range of Cummins and Caterpillar engines in its heavy vehicles. Company officials say they also expect continued collaboration with Cummins on engine component development and sourcing.
