LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Navistar unveiled improvements to its International WorkStar severe-service trucks at the Conexpo-Con/Agg construction industry trade show.
New to the WorkStar is a high-visibility sloped hood option and a completely new interior with improved ergonomics and driver comfort enhancements, the company announced.
“With the new sloped hood, WorkStar is now available in a comprehensive range of specifications to meet the diverse needs of our vocational truck customers,” said Jim Hebe, Navistar’s senior vice-president, North American sales operations. “Together with the improved visibility and interior enhancements, the WorkStar provides an added level of comfort and convenience that allows these vocational truck drivers to do their jobs safely and effectively.”
International also borrowed a strong vocational “mega-bracket” from its PayStar 5900 Set-Back Axle (SBA) offering and applied it to the WorkStar, to provide more radiator and front-end support.
Key features for the International WorkStar 7600 with sloped hood are: 113-inch BBC for excellent maneuverability; best-in-class visibility; 150,000-lb tow hooks; availability in 4×2 and 6×4 axle configurations; and availability for REPTO and transmission-mounted PTO applications.
New interior features include: easy-to-read ivory gauges or chrome bezel black gauges on the instrument panel; rosewood trim on the dash; an ergonomic center panel for easy access to switches; hands-on steering wheel controls; easy to clean floor mats; and a new back wall pocket for additional storage.
“From our no-hassle MaxxForce Advanced EGR emissions technology and new products like the TerraStar and TerraStar 4×4 to the integration of Continental Mixers, we continue to focus on meeting the needs of construction customers,” Hebe said. “We are committed to delivering innovative, best-in-class products that move the construction market forward.”
