Navistar Ahead of Schedule in Shipping ProStars with Cummins SCR Engines

Navistar International Corp. said it is shipping its first 300 International ProStar Plus Class 8 tractors equipped with Cummins ISX15 engines, which use selective catalytic reduction technology.

Reaching the ready-to-ship milestone five days ahead of schedule “demonstrates the tremendous progress we’re making in delivering our first SCR-based Class 8 trucks to the marketplace,” said Troy Clarke, Navistar’s president.

“Working collaboratively and fully integrated with our Cummins colleagues, the team has beat an aggressive launch timeline while ensuring the highest levels of quality,” he said in a statement.

Navistar plans to release its quarterly earnings on Wednesday.
