International Truck inks record order of HX Series trucks

International Truck announced that it has received its largest one-time order of International HX Series trucks to date. RLJ Thompson Trucking, Inc., based in Concord, Va., has purchased 15 HX620 trucks equipped with the 15-liter Cummins ISX engine. International Truck recently launched the HX Series, its newest new line of Class 8 vocational trucks. It is the first new line of trucks from International in five years, and will replace the International PayStar model.

“We already have orders for more than 300 trucks and that number is growing by the day,” said Jeff Sass, Navistar’s senior vice president of sales and marketing. “This interest is fueled by how we designed our new HX Series based on in-depth discussions with leading Class 8 vocational customers. Each of the four models in the series has been engineered to deliver unmatched performance for the most punishing jobsites while also making operators more productive.”

“We ordered the new HX Series trucks because we are excited about the bold design that offers a sturdy, yet lightweight truck powered by the ISX engine,” said Ricky Thompson, president of RLJ Thompson Trucking. “As with previous International Truck purchases, we value our relationship and superior support service provided by our International dealer, Powell’s Truck and Equipment, Inc.”
