Swift to test International ProStar with SmartAdvantage powertrain
LISLE, Ill. — Navistar has announced Swift Transportation will be piloting International ProStar tractors with the Eaton-Cummins SmartAdvantage powertrain.
The trucks will be powered by the Cummins ISX15 engine, mated to an integrated Eaton Fuller Advantage automated manual transmission.
“We feel the marriage of automated transmissions withcomplimentary engine parameters will generate optimal fuel economy performance while also helping retain drivers,” said Bert Kinsel, vice-president of heavy equipment, Swift. “This, combined with truck aerodynamics should prove to be a winning combination.”
“Swift is North America’s largest full truckload carrier and we are looking forward to delivering their International ProStar units with the ISX15 and Eaton-Cummins SmartAdvantage automated manual transmission,” added Bill Kozek, president, North American Truck and Parts, Navistar. “Our testing shows this truck configuration provides outstanding fuel economy performance and we are confident Swift Transportation will experience the same benefits we have observed.”
