International announced Friday a high-efficiency spec for its LT Series truck that simplifies the integration of fuel friendly and aerodynamic technologies.

The LT MPG Package includes an aerodynamic chassis package, predictive cruise control, air dam and bumper seal, as well as a roof fairing and extenders, chassis skirts and energy-efficient wheel covers.

“Spec’ing for fuel efficiency can be a complex process,” says Navistar President of Truck and Parts Michael Cancelliere. “The LT MPG Package simplifies that process while reducing customer TCO.”

Cancelliere says the spec delivers up to 8 percent in improved fuel efficiency over the International LT Series with just the roof fairing and extenders, air dam and bumper seal.

“At a time when every one-percent improvement in fuel efficiency can save customers hundreds of dollars per truck per year, this new fuel efficiency spec package can help customers achieve major reductions in their TCO,” he says. “In addition to savings from fuel efficiency, the LT Series MPG Package provides customers with upfront savings through cost-effective bundling of a range of aerodynamic, fuel-saving features.”
