LOUISVILLE, Ky. — International is beefing up its High Performance Truck line with the rollout of the 7600 4×2 and 6×4 models, which come with big-bore power.

The 7600, aimed at the road maintenance, waste collector and construction markets, has 430 horsepower under the hood deliver by Caterpillar C10 and C-12 engines. But this is a giant that remains nimble on its feet with set forward and set back axle settings and up to a 50-degree wheel cut delivered by wide track front axles.

The truck can be spec’d with a range of transmissions, including Eaton Fuller manuals and Allison HD automatics.

The 7600 shares the cab, chassis and 107 inches BBC with the rest of the 7000 Series.

International also claims that reduced preventive maintenance costs with the truck deliver as much as US$531 in savings per 100,000 miles. Repair costs are also reduced over the life of the vehicle with the addition of two-way breakaway mirrors that can withstand up a nine mph impact, and a three-piece hood with individual sections that can be removed and replaced.

Steve Keate says International has committed itself to replacing its product line every 10 years and coming to market with major product upgrades every five years.
