On Wednesday, March 4, Navistar unveiled its 2010 MaxxForce DT Advanced EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) midrange diesel engine at the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) Work Truck Show in Chicago.

“Our strategy of 2010 emissions compliance through the use of an EGR-only solution is on track,” said Steve Guillaume, Navistar general manager of vocational trucks. “With our lineup of MaxxForce Advanced EGR engines, we’re delivering a simple and straightforward solution that places the burden of emissions compliance on the manufacturer, not the customer.”

At the Work Truck Show, Navistar also:
· Unveiled its newest hybrid truck, the WorkStar Hybrid 4×4, described as the industry’s first four-wheel drive diesel-electric hybrid commercial truck;
· Announced that Kraft Foods Inc. has added another green ingredient to its DiGiorno Pizza line – a diesel-electric hybrid delivery truck equipped with a RouteMax refrigerated truck body for frozen and refrigerated capabilities; and
· Announced that the City of Chicago has added its first hybrid work truck to its fleet, the DuraStar Hybrid.
