Navistar shows MaxxForce 15

Jack Roberts | March 23, 2011

At the ConExpo construction show March 22 in Las Vegas, Navistar Senior VP Jim Hebe showcased the company’s long-awaited EGR 15-liter diesel engine for severe duty vocational applications.

Hebe noted, “This is Navistar engine technology and expertise built upon a proven Caterpillar platform.”

The new MaxxForce 15 diesel is available with up to 550 hp and 1,850 lb.-ft. of torque. Peak torque is reached at 1,000 rpm and holds steady to 1,600 rpm, according to Navistar. This reduced gear shifts in uphill terrain and allows for shifting at lower speeds when accelerating.

The MaxxForce 15 will be built in Navistar’s Huntsville, Ala., engine plant and is available now in vocational configurations. Engine options for on-highway (non-vocational) applications will be available in late summer.
