Navistar Completes Heavy-Duty Transition To SCR
Navistar, Inc. announced its International LoneStar on-highway tractor with Cummins ISX15 engine with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) emissions technology is now available for order. The LoneStar, which is offered in three ratings starting at 500 hp and 1850 lb. ft torque, is the company’s final heavy-duty Class 8 on-highway truck model to incorporate SCR emissions technology since Navistar began its SCR transition in December 2012.
“We now offer a full lineup of SCR product offerings for our Class 8 customers and we have completed each launch on time—and with the highest levels of quality,” said Bill Kozek, president North America Truck and Parts, Navistar. “Throughout this transition, we have seen an improvement in customer confidence reflected in our Class 8 order share and we are already starting off strong with our medium-duty transition as we move into 2014.”
Navistar began its Class 8 SCR transition in December 2012 with the launch of the International ProStar with the Cummins ISX15 and then the International ProStar with MaxxForce 13 with SCR in April. The company’s range of SCR-based heavy-duty trucks now also includes the International PayStar 5900 Set-Back Axle and International 9900i with the Cummins ISX15 engine as well as the International PayStar, TranStar, and WorkStar with the MaxxForce 13 engine with SCR.
In early September, Navistar announced it had received more than 11,500 orders for Cummins ISX engines since December 1 and more than 6000 orders for MaxxForce 13 engines with SCR since March 1.
