Navistar-led partnership plans natural gas initiative

| February 01, 2012

For the regional haul and Class 7 and Class 8 vocational market, Navistar will offer the Cummins-Westport ISL-G in the International TranStar and WorkStar. Additionally, Navistar will enter into a phase II developmental agreement with Clean Air Power on the ProStar, WorkStar and PayStar vocational trucks, powered by a diesel pilot injection LNG MaxxForce 13-liter engine.

“One of the major obstacles in customer transition to natural gas has been the lack of a gas-powered range of engines designed to meet the multiple requirements without compromise,” said Hebe. “When the MaxxForce 13L is introduced in mid-2013, customers will have a capable range of natural gas engines and trucks, from 7.6 liter to 13 liter with horsepower ranging from 200 to 450.”
