International Truck launches HX series

International Truck has launched the International HX Series, a new line of Class 8 vocational trucks, the first new line of trucks from International in five years. The HX series will replace the International PayStar model.

“The launch of the HX Series is an opportunity for International to recapture a leading position in the vocational market—a segment we previously led,” said Troy Clarke, president and chief executive officer of Navistar Inc. “The launch of the HX Series underscores our commitment to innovation, our dedication to uptime and our position as a leader within the industry.”

“The design of our new HX Series is based on in-depth discussions with leading users of severe service applications,” said Bill Kozek, Navistar president of truck and parts. “Each of the four models in the series has been engineered to deliver unmatched performance for the most punishing jobs, while making operators more productive.”

International is taking orders for this vehicle now. The first vehicles will be delivered this spring.

Four HX Series models will be offered, with both set-forward and set-back front axle models in either short or long hood, depending on the application. Three models were unveiled at World of Concrete, while the last, the HX520, will be formally unveiled at Truck World in Toronto in April.

The four models are as follows:

  • The HX515 is a 115 in. BBC set-forward axle straight truck with primary vocations including concrete mixer, construction dump, refuse/roll-off and crane. Navistar N13 engine.
  • The HX615 is a 115 in. BBC set-back axle truck or tractor with primary vocations including construction dump, concrete mixer, platform stake/crane and refuse/roll-off. Navistar N13 engine.
  • The HX620 is a 120 in. BBC set-forward axle truck or tractor with primary vocations including heavy haul tractor, construction dump and platform stake/crane. Cummins ISX15 engine.
