The truck, available with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) emissions technology, is now available for order. The LoneStar was 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,” says 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 of 2012 with the the International ProStar with Cummins ISX15, followed by the International ProStar with MaxxForce 13 with SCR in April. Today, the company’s portfolio of SCR-based heavy-duty trucks 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.
Navistar says the LoneStar has been wind tunnel validated to be arguably the most aerodynamic long hood premium conventional truck ever designed.
