ProStar + with ISX15 rolls off production line

Nov. 16, 2012

For International Truck customers waiting for the transition to SCR emissions technology to officially begin, this week marked that milestone. Navistar announced yesterday afternoon that the first Class 8 ProStar+ tractor with Cummins ISX15 engine and Cummins Emission Solutions’ SCR-aftertreatment has rolled off the production line at Escobedo, Mexico this week.

“This is a great accomplishment for Navistar and an important milestone as we bring our first SCR-based Class 8 trucks to the marketplace,” said Troy Clarke, Navistar president & COO. “The entire launch team and hundreds of others working behind the scenes are committed to a high-quality launch and this achievement is another proof point in our progress.”

The initial ProStar+ with ISX15 engines will be added to Navistar’s test fleet during Navistar’s final validation process. Navistar said it has secured orders for more than 1,000 ProStar+ trucks with the ISX15.

Regular production of the vehicle will begin in April, Navistar said.
