Hendrickson and AxelTech Equip Navistar's MRAP Vehicles

WOODRIDGE, IL. – Navistar Defense LLC awarded Hendrickson and AxleTech International a contract to equip 2,717 International MaxxPro Long Wheel Base (LWB) Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles with independent suspension systems.

The vehicles — which help protect soldiers from roadside bombs — will come with Hendrickson's integrated suspension system, incorporating their advanced engineered sub-frames, sway -bars, coil springs and shocks with AxleTech’s 5000 Series Independent Suspension Axle System (ISAS).

The state-of-the-art system, Hendrickson says, delivers improved mobility in rough terrain, better control and greater wheel travel to improve driver efficiency at higher off-road speeds.

?“The AxleTech / Hendrickson system will modernize and standardize the suspension system of the Army’s MaxxPro fleet,” said Gerry Giudici, vice president and general manager of AxleTech International.

As the Tier 1 supplier, Hendrickson will supply the completed suspension systems to Navistar for installation on the MRAP vehicles, which will ultimately be delivered to the U.S. Army. ?
