WARRENVILLE, Ill. — Navistar announced its International MaxxForce DT mid-range engine has been certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The company claims it is the first of its engines to be certified, with more announcements to come over the coming weeks.
All its engines use advanced exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) to meeting EPA2010 emissions standards.
The MaxxForce DT is usually found under the hoods of DuraStar and WorkStar medium-duty and severe-service International trucks.
“Receiving EPA certification is an important milestone and marks one of our last stages prior to the launch of our 2010 trucks and engines,” said Ramin Younessi, Navistar group vice-president, product development and strategy. “We anticipate receiving additional EPA certifications for our other engine families in the days and weeks ahead as our manufacturing plants begin to ramp-up for full production of our 2010 line-up of trucks and buses.”
