First LoneStar produced hits the Maritime highways

MONCTON, N.B. — Navistar recently handed keys to the first production International LoneStar to Jeramand Enterprises, signifying delivery is underway for International brand’s new Class 8 flagship product.

Navistar representatives presented the keys to Danny Boudreau, driver and owner of Jeramand Enterprises, during ceremonies at East Coast International Trucks in Moncton, N.B.

“I knew when I first saw the LoneStar that I had to have one and I couldn’t be more excited to receive the first truck,” said Boudreau. “With all its chrome, I can’t wait to show it off to family and friends.”

The International LoneStar is the result of extensive customer research and automotive-inspired design.

“LoneStar is unlike anything on the road today,” said Steve Gilligan, assistant general manager, heavy vehicles, Navistar Truck Group. “The International LoneStar closes the gap between work style and lifestyle for driving professionals, combining peak productivity with emotional appeal. It is the product of Navistar’s culture of relentless innovation, and embodies the spirit both of today’s driving professionals and the dynamic, transforming energy inside our company.”

The LoneStar made its debut to the public earlier this year in February at the Chicago Auto Show. In March, truck enthusiasts got their first look at the truck at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky.
