LAS VEGAS, Nev. — International Truck and Engine is now taking orders for its big bore MaxxForce 11 and MaxxForce 13 engines.
The company showcased the engines at a trade press ride-and-drive in Las Vegas last week, demonstrating the engines’ low noise and gritty pulling power, especially at low RPMs. The March issues of Truck News and Truck West will feature a full report on the new MaxxForce engines.
The new engines were specifically designed to work with Class 8 International trucks, and are currently offered exclusively in the company’s ProStar, TranStar and WorkStar tractors. There are six MaxxForce models available ranging from 330 to 475 hp and 1,250 lb.-ft. to 1,700 lb.-ft. of torque.
“Anticipation has been high since we announced our strategy nearly three years ago, and this world class product will exceed expectations,” said Jack Allen, International’s engine group president. “But its true impact can’t fully be realized until you hear it, drive it and learn about its advanced systems.”
The MaxxForce is built around the value propositions of: excellent fuel economy; strong power and torque; quiet operation with low noise; and high strength without added weight, the company announced.
More information about the MaxxForce is available at www.maxxforce.com and a full review of International’s new engine line will be featured in the March print editions of Truck News and Truck West.
