Navistar LoadStar Reports for Severe-sevice Duty

Navistar’s new low-cab-forward work truck, called LoadStar.

LOUISVILLE, KY — Navistar has introduced a new severe-service low-cab-forward work truck called the LoadStar.

Aimed at — among others — the waste, concrete-pumping and airplane-refueling markets, the LoadStar’s keynote apps include: Stainless-steel cab designed to minimize corrosion and increase durability; Variable-depth frame rails for maximum durability, Lighter weight, lower frame rail heights and better ride characteristics.

“We talked to drivers to better understand their needs and what is missing from the trucks they drive,” said Jim Hebe, Navistar senior vice president, North American sales operations. “To fit driver needs, we optimized the space in the cab, increased seat and steering wheel movement, and adjusted joystick placement to deliver an outstanding ergonomic and customizable work environment. The exterior boasts the signature appearance and design of the International Truck brand.”

Featuring a standard tilt/telescoping steering column and 10-in. fore/aft and 6.5-in. up/down seat travel, LoadStar’s settings provide for unprecedented belly room. A wide 90-degree door opening and easy 18-in. first step height, provide drivers with maximum comfort.

The truck is available with diese-powered 10, 11 or 13L MaxxForce engines, and Cummins Westport ISL-G compressed natural gas engine available in spring 2013, for increased versatility

LoadStar will be available for orders in October 2012 through International dealers in the United States and Canada.
