Dana Holding Corp. has said that Navistar has chosen its axles and driveshafts as standard equipment on the International TerraStar 4x4 medium-duty truck.

The all-wheel-drive vehicles have started reaching customers.

“Not only do Spicer axle and driveshaft technologies offer best-in-class performance and efficiency, but they also offer the rugged durability that is required in this line of hardworking trucks,” said Pat D'Eramo, president of Dana Commercial Vehicle Driveline Technologies.

The TerraStar features Dana’s Spicer Model 273 front drive steer axle, which delivers ae turn angle of 42 deg., a GAWR of 8,000 lbs., and popular axle ratios.
