International Rolls Out Medium-Duty Truck

| May 13, 2002

The International Truck and Engine Co. has launched the International 4200, a medium-duty truck powered by a 215 horsepower engine.

The International 4200, part of the company’s line of high performance trucks, delivers improved maneuverability and reduces preventive maintenance costs and overall repair time by as much as 20 percent, the company said. The truck is more maneuverable because of its 50-degree wheel cut and more maintenance-friendly because of its multiplexed electrical system.

The truck is powered by the International VT 365 diesel engine, with a four-valve, six-liter displacement.

“Business owners can bank on the highest uptime, lowest operating and maintenance costs and the highest resale value,” said Steve Keate, president of International’s truck group.

The truck also features Intuitive Shift controllers, an Allison Transmission feature that integrates the engine and the transmission to change transmission ratios in relation to driver input, vehicle load and driving condition.

The 4200 is available for order. Production begins in March.
