The distinctive International LoneStar has been a somewhat popular truck in Canada – at least it was till Navistar stopped offering the ISX15 engine under the hood. Well, that combination is back, which should provide some renewed interest in the model. The International LoneStar was the last of International’s Class 8 trucks to receive an SCR engine. The latest move complete’s Navistar’s transition to a heavy-duty SCR product line.
“We now offer a full lineup of SCR product offerings for our Class 8 customers and we have completed each launch on time – and with the highest levels of quality,” said Bill Kozek, president North America Truck and Parts, Navistar. “Throughout this transition, we have seen an improvement in customer confidence reflected in our Class 8 order share and we are already starting off strong with our medium-duty transition as we move into 2014.”
The LoneStar can be had with 15L engines rated from 500-550 hp and 1,850-2,250 lb.-ft. of torque. “Customers specifically asked us for 15-litre power in the LoneStar,” Bill said. “This combination is what originally made the LoneStar popular and with the re-launch of the LoneStar with the Cummins ISX15 and SCR technology, our customers can turn heads and do so with reduced emissions and increased efficiency.”
