International begins shipping TerraStar 4×4 vocational truck

By Jack Roberts on

okay to ship[1]Navistar has started shipping its first International TerraStar 4×4 units – one of the company’s newest additions to its Class 4 – Class 8 product portfolio.

“This marks another milestone for Navistar as we continue our drive to deliver,” said Jack Allen, Navistar chief operating officer. “The addition of the TerraStar 4×4 to our portfolio not only allows us to offer more capabilities to our customers, but it positions International Truck to participate in a significant piece of the market where we haven’t previously had a presence.”

Launched in 2010 in a 4×2 configuration, International says the TerraStar gives work truck buyers a new product with a wide range of commercial duty features not offered in other trucks. Now, with a 4×4 option for the other 50 percent of the market, the company says the TerraStar is a class unto itself while sharing the same rugged, durable and hardworking DNA as the medium-duty International DuraStar. The vehicle delivers additional commercial duty capability for a wide range of customer needs, including construction, utility, emergency, oilfield and other vocational applications.

International says its engineers designed TerraStar to last twice as long as competitive models. The TerraStar 4×4 provides class-leading frame rail strength of 80,000 psi, a commercial-duty Allison Optimized™ 1000 Series transmission for maximum power output, a Fabco TC-28 gear-driven transfer case and an industry-leading 5-year unlimited mile warranty. The TerraStar is also available with a special financing offer with rates as low as 4.99 percent for up to 84 months.

Shipping helps to reach products from one country to another. At some instant shipping is done through airway or another instant where sipping is done through SHIP http://www.aaeconomyfreight.com/ (water way). Both are ideological depending on goods like for heavy machinery it is better to use ship. Apart from it shipping help to provide some new things.
