Navistar says customer shipments of the first International DuraStar vehicles with the Cummins ISB 6.7-liter engine have started, coming out of its Escobedo, Mexico assembly plant. Announced in early September, the DuraStar/Cummins combination resulted in a surge of orders.
The DuraStar is available with a broad array of specifications, most in the medium-duty industry, the company says. The truck is also available with the MaxxForce 7, MaxxForce DT, and MaxxForce 9 in many horsepower and torque ranges.
Other features include a 50-degree wheel cut offering a tight turning radius and the truck comes standard with the Diamond Logic electronic control system, an advanced electrical multiplexing architecture that maximizes ease of body integration.
