International announces fuel efficient ProStar spec for Canada

International Truck is introducing its ProStar ES fuel-efficiency package to the Canadian market.

Available for applications up to 110,000 gross combined weight rating, the ProStar ES spec features aerodynamic and powertrain/transmission combinations for improved performance.

“We are committed to technology, innovation, tools and services that deliver industry-leading uptime and low total cost of ownership,” said Bill Kozek, president Truck and Parts, Navistar. “The ProStar ES continues to leverage the latest advancements and has established a reputation in the industry for being one of the most fuel efficient, highest quality trucks on the road.”

This ProStar ES spec features:

  • Eaton 16-speed UltraShift Plus LSE transmission paired with the Cummins ISX15, as well as Navistar’s proprietary 13L engine

  • XFE 75W-90 axle lubricant (available on the ISX15 and the N13), a new and innovative fuel efficient lubricant that reduces friction and spin losses, improves durability and drives further fuel efficiency improvements

“The launch of the ProStar ES in late 2014 generated a lot of interest in Canada, but the 80,000 pound GCWR limited its appeal, as many Canadian fleets want the flexibility up to run 110,000 pounds and still achieve outstanding fuel economy,” said Mark Belisle, president, Navistar Canada. “The ES 110 is the result of close collaboration among engineers at Navistar and key component suppliers like Cummins and Eaton, to quickly respond to customer needs and develop a solution for the Canadian market.”

The new spec will be in production this spring, but is available to order today.
