International Truck and Engine will offer the expanded MaxxForce International Diesel Power line of on-highway engines in 2007. The product line will range from a four-cylinder 2.8-liter engine up to the company’s new offerings in the 11- to 13-liter class.
MaxxForce engine-powered International brand commercial trucks in North America will offer air- and fuel-management technologies and exhaust gas recirculation systems. They also have advanced aftertreatment systems to help meet the 2007 emissions standards.
“Smart truck buyers recognize the impact that a powertrain has on vehicle performance and economics, and by branding our engines, we focus attention on the quality, performance and customer experience that our company delivers,” says Jack Allen, president of the International Engine Group.
The global MaxxForce line of diesels includes models for markets under European environmental regulations as well as models for stricter U.S. Environmental Protetction Agency standards. MaxxForce engines will be broadly available beginning with the company’s 2007 model-year Class 3 through Class 8 commercial trucks. A Euro-emission-based MaxxForce engine will be made available in Mexico in 2006 for bus applications.
