Launched in 2010 with a 4x2 power train standard, the International TerraStar took the industry by storm in 2010, giving work truck buyers an exciting new product with a wide range of commercial duty features. Now, with a 4x4 option, the TerraStar is poised to win over an even broader range of customers with more severe demands.
The TerraStar 4x4 variant will deliver additional commercial duty capability for a wide range of customer needs, including construction, utility, landscape, and other off-highway applications.
The 2010â€™s launch of the International TerraStar created enormous buzz in the industry and the addition of the TerraStar 4x4 will help maintain Navistarâ€™s leadership in the medium-duty market moving forward.
With the same commercial-duty bloodlines as the rest of the International truck line-up, the TerraStar delivers performance and durability that customers have come to expect from International.
Since its introduction in March 2010 and production launch in October 2010, the International TerraStar has generated significant interest from work truck buyers. To date, the company has received more than 2,000 orders.
At the heart of the new International TerraStar is its 300 horsepower, 6.4-liter MaxxForce 7 V-8 engine, delivering 660 lb.-ft. torque. This engine features a compacted graphite iron (CGI) block which offers high strength without added weight. The TerraStar features MaxxForce Advanced EGR emissions technology, the only no-hassle emissions technology in its class.
The TerraStar features a true commercial-duty truck cab with 30 percent more cab interior space than the market leader, allowing plenty of room for three adults to fit comfortably in the front seat.
With MaxxForce Advanced EGR, customers wonâ€™t have the worry or inconvenience of finding or filling liquid urea. And, with no added after treatment equipment, the TerraStar provides a clean and clear chassis for easy body and equipment mounting, not to mention less added weight, said Navistar.
Jim Hebe, senior vice president of North American sales operations at Navistar, said: â€œWith the addition of a 4x4 model, simply put, the International TerraStar is unmatched in the industry. The design and durability of TerraStar is influenced by our entire line-up of commercial trucks, sharing the same rugged, durable, and hardworking DNA thatâ€™s made us an industry leader.â€
Will the new truck commercially benefit Navistar?
