International drops the curtain on its Class 4/5 commercial-grade CV Series

International Truck launched the International CV Series, a Class 4/5 truck that is designed, distributed and supported by a manufacturer specializing in commercial vehicles—which the manufacturer says is a big differentiator in the market.

The CV Series sports a gear-driven transfer case, a high-strength, low-alloy steel frame rail and a painted chassis for enhanced longevity and corrosion resistance. A commercial-style forward-tilting hood provides access to the engine and to routine maintenance points. Under that hood is the International 6.6-liter, 350-HP engine with 700 lb.-ft. of torque. Equipped with that engine and two Allison transmission options, the CV is capable of handling up to a maximum GCWR of 37,500 lbs.

International explained that the CV Series was tested in extreme environments, including 40 degrees below zero Fahrenheit in Fairbanks, Ala., and 115 degrees Fahrenheit in Apache, Ariz., as well as high-altitude testing at 12,000 ft. in Loveland Pass, Colo.

“The CV Series features a long list of heavy-duty details that would only be found on a truck designed by commercial truck engineers,” said David Majors, Navistar’s vice president of product development. “Our engineers had one mission: to create the toughest, most capable, most upfit-friendly Class 4 and 5 truck to be found at any work site.”

Speaking of upfitting, International said that the CV Series is able to accommodate a wide range of specialized body types that growing businesses need. Straight frame rails with no rivets on the top flange provide a clean area from cab to axle, making it easy to mount bodies for virtually any commercial-grade application, according to the manufacturer. The CV Series is outfitted with HuckBolt chassis fasteners that provide consistent clamping force without re-torqueing and won’t come loose even in extreme environments, the OEM said.

Accommodating the configuration options required by different bodies, the CV Series offers a dual battery box mounted under the cab. The CV Series also includes multiple fuel tank options, optional exhaust outlets to suit the vocation and body, and multiple wheelbase options that can suit almost any application.

CV Series customers also have access to the same Truck Specialty Center expertise as all International customers. At these centers are fully owned and operated by International Truck and staffed with experts who provide custom engineering solutions.

The CV Series is also backed by International dealer network’s expertise, which specialize in commercial transportation sales and spec’ing, the manufacturer explained, making it easier for a customer to pick the configuration and specs that are right for any vocational application. In addition, International’s Application Engineering Team offers access to vocational engineering experts who can help design a custom configuration geared to the application.

The International dealer network’s more than 700 service locations feature more than 7,600 ASE-certified commercial diesel-trained technicians in the U.S. and more than 1,900 in Canada.

Climb inside the cab and the CV Series offers automotive-like comfort, featuring premium interior finishes and outstanding driver ergonomics. Multiple infotainment options are available, including an 8-in. color touch screen with navigation and, for the first time in an International truck, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
