Navistar forges engine-supply link with Daewoo

June 1, 2012

Truck and engine maker Navistar recently established a diesel-engine supply agreement with Korean commercial vehicle manufacturer Daewoo Bus. The deal is focused initially on small-displacement motors.

As part of the agreement, Navistar’s MaxxForce 3.2 liter in-line four-cylinder engines – which comply with Euro III through Euro V emissions standards –  will power 6.0-ton GVW and 5.5-ton GVW Daewoo models, in particular the LESTAR light-duty transit bus that carries up to 30 passengers.

“This is another important step in the execution of our strategy, as we continue to expand our global reach and serve Asia,” said David LaPalomento, Navistar vp for global truck and engine sales.
