INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — International Truck has unveiled the MV Series vocational truck, with the promise of a model that will “work harder all day, every day.”

Features include new cab doors with lower bottom glass edges and removed vent windows for better visibility, reshaped doors and side glass, a new premium gauge cluster with digital driver display, and up to 15 customizable digital gauges.

Jeff Sass, senior vice-president of sales and marketing, said one thing drivers really wanted was the wider dash switches that can be operated while wearing gloves. Now they have it.

“The new International MV Series reflects our vision for the future of commercial vehicles with a host of advancements that support improved driver safety and productivity,” said Sass. “We challenged ourselves to make the best even better and this new vehicle was designed to provide the best driver environment in the industry and we exceeded all of our targets.”

Other features include an improved HVAC system, which includes a high-performance MAX defrost system.

Diamond Logic, an electrical system that streamlines the integration of chassis and body equipment, also permits programmable automated tasks.

“Our Diamond Logic electrical system is known for its ability to provide control and communication between trucks and body equipment,” said Sass. “We were a pioneer in custom programmable chassis electronics and multiplexing and we continue to partner with end users and body builders to further increase productivity and make it easy to integrate with our system.”

“We have designed the MV Series to seamlessly integrate with any body solution,” he said. “This truck can be easily configurable for any application.”

The truck is also linked to the OnCommand Connection platform, featuring advanced remote diagnostics.

The new MV Series truck will be available this spring, with orders now being accepted.
