LISLE, Ill. — Navistar has started shipping its first International ProStar units powered by the company’s SCR-based MaxxForce 13 engine. The first units began shipping April 26 – ahead of schedule, according to the company – from truck manufacturing plants in Escobedo, Mexico and Springfield, Ohio. Earlier in the month, the company received certification for the SCR-based 13-litre engine from the US Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board.
“Delivering our 13-litre engine ahead of schedule is another important milestone for Navistar and completes our transition to SCR-based heavy-duty engine offerings,” said Troy Clarke, Navistar president and CEO. “We continue to receive great customer feedback on the refined 13-litre engines we’re delivering today. And, customers will continue to see outstanding levels of quality, reliability and uptime with our 13-litre engine combined with the proven Cummins SCR aftertreatment system.”
Navistar introduced its first SCR-based commercial trucks for the US and Canadian markets in December with the launch of the International ProStar with the Cummins ISX 15-litre engine. The remaining line-up of International heavy-duty truck models will transition to SCR-based clean engine technology in a phased launch in the coming months based on volume and customer demand, the company says.
