Navistar, Inc. announced Monday the company shipped its first International ProStar units powered by the company’s SCR-based MaxxForce 13 engine Friday, April 26.

The trucks left manufacturing plants in Escobedo, Mexico and Springfield, Ohio ahead of schedule.

“Delivering our 13-liter engine ahead of schedule is another important milestone for Navistar and completes our transition to SCR-based heavy-duty engine offerings,” Troy Clarke , Navistar president and chief executive officer, says. “We continue to receive great customer feedback on the refined 13-liter engines we’re delivering today. And, customers will continue to see outstanding levels of quality, reliability and uptime with our 13-liter engine combined with the proven Cummins SCR aftertreatment system.”

Earlier in the month, the company received certification for the SCR-based 13-liter engine from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB).

Navistar introduced its first SCR-based commercial trucks for the U.S. and Canadian markets in December 2012 with the launch of the International ProStar with the Cummins ISX 15-liter 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.
