Production Begins on International TranStar With SCR Engine

August 8, 2013

Navistar Inc. has launched its International TransStar regional haul tractor with MaxxForce 13 engine with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) emissions technology.

"We continue to rapidly increase our 15-liter and 13-liter product coverage and we remain on track to complete the SCR transition of our heavy-duty truck offerings," said Bill Kozek, president North America Truck and Parts, Navistar. "The trucks we are building today are the highest quality trucks Navistar has ever built and they offer improved fuel economy with the same off-the-line responsiveness."

This is the fifth model in the International line to switch to SCR technology since December 2012. The company is transitioning all of its trucks to SCR in order to meet EPA emissions requirements.
