International Truck revamps MV Series design

International Truck pulled the sheet off of its new International MV Series. The OEM noted that the new MV Series was designed for increased maneuverability, visibility and safety. An aerodynamic hood and breakaway mirrors provide increased visibility for drivers and the restyled bumper and black, molded-in-color grille with optional chrome surround deliver attention grabbing looks. The MV Series includes standard halogen headlights, with newly introduced, optional LED headlights. Powering the MV Series are two engine options, the Cummins B6.7 and L9, with increased fuel efficiency, as well as extended and aligned maintenance intervals.

Several optional collision mitigation enhancements are also available. The Bendix Wingman Fusion System technology includes adaptive cruise, enhanced collision mitigation, multilane vehicle braking, stationary object alert, lane departure warning, and front radar and cameras. The Bendix BlindSpotter Collision Warning System is equipped with side object detection alert.

International touted the MV Series’s high efficiency cooling module that eliminates mega-brackets enabling integrated front frame extensions and an improved snowplow upfit offering. Hood mounted splash panels and on-engine air cleaner provide improved under-hood access while an optional under-hood work light is available for improved visibility during daily maintenance checks. Chassis packaging changes allow for improved body integration and improved operating costs for a wide variety of applications.

The Diamond Logic electrical system comes standard, allowing for customized programming for driver and equipment protection, ease of body integration and greater uptime. Hundreds of off the shelf features exist today for improved safety, examples of which include: driver safety with the inclusion of pre-trip light inspection; safety on the jobsite with external regen warning; and equipment protection with hydraulic oil power take-off (PTO) shutdown and an outrigger stowed interlock.

Corrosion protection is also improved with InterCoat ChemGuard standard on the cab floor, as well as optional LINE-X offering for particularly tough environments.

The new MV Series is supported through OnCommand Connection, Navistar’s remote diagnostics system. Customers have the option to receive real time information to protect their assets through GPS and geofencing capabilities as well as easy to understand and actionable vehicle health reports. The new MV Series includes the option for customers to add International 360–the service communications platform that improves communication with the International service network and streamline the repair process.

“This is an evolution, rather than a departure, from our existing strategy,” said Diane Hames, vice president, Marketing. “The new MV moves the International brand forward and is equipped with the features and technology to be an excellent fit for every customer.”

The new International MV Series makes its first public appearance at the Utility Expo September 28-30 in Louisville, Kentucky at booth #N1135.
