International Truck and Engine has announced the launch of the new class 6 International 4200 4Ă—4, together with another recently-released member of the International 4000 series, the International 4100 class 5 conventional.

The International 4200 4Ă—4 and International 4100 build on the key features and benefits of the International 4000 series, including durability, reliability and advanced technology, according to the manufacturer.

The International 4100 extends International’s family of medium-duty trucks, built with the same rugged medium commercial-truck components used in International’s line of class 6 and 7 trucks.

“The International 4100 is a great choice and provides unmatched value for utility industry customers that want the advantages of owning an International in a class 5 product offering,” said Mike Elwell, director of marketing for International’s Medium Vehicle Center.

The new International 4200 4×4 is a fully integrated and factory-built vehicle, and extends the manufacturer’s 4×4 offering into a lighter GVW rating. Like the International 4100, the International 4200 is engineered to provide outstanding maneuverability and visibility, as well as extended and synchronized service intervals for reduced maintenance and operating costs. However, with a rugged frame and 4-wheel drive, the International 4200 can handle the off-road applications that the utility industry often faces, according to the company.

“The International 4100 and International 4200 are the answers to our customers’ search for the right vehicle rating and capability for their business,” said Elwell. “These vehicles are well-suited for the diverse applications of the utility industry, providing exceptional performance and maneuverability, as well the International Diamond Logic Electric system for drivers’ technology and safety needs.”

Both the International 4100 and International 4200 4×4 come equipped with the Diamond Logic Electric system, a self-diagnosing system designed to provide integrated intelligence for truck operations, as well as a range of body-integration benefits, including increased reliability and maximized uptime. Also available is the Aware Vehicle Intelligence, International’s telematics offering for improved fleet productivity.

Some of the features of the International 4100 include:

  • Available in 17,800 and 19,500 GVW.
  • A spacious cab with available air-ride suspension and optional crew cab or extended cab, built to automotive tolerances for a comfortable and quiet environment.
  • 50,000-pound PSI-rated frame-ladder system, supported by a 7-year limited frame warranty for more demanding jobs.
  • Commercial grade, 4-wheel hydraulic disc brakes equipped with 15-inch rotors.
  • International VT365 engine, Allison automatic.
  • Additionally, the 4200 4Ă—4 also includes:

  • Available in 21,500 and 25,999 GVW.
  • Air brakes and controls.
  • Capable of achieving low 105-inch (267 cm) overall height, with 19.5 tires.
  • Factory-designed 4Ă—4 system.
  • The International 4100 now is available through International dealers. The International 4200 4Ă—4 will be available in spring 2006.
