Navistar prepares Huntsville Plant for powertrain production  

Navistar recently announced plans to build an integrated powertrain at its recently expanded Huntsville Powertrain Manufacturing Plant in Huntsville, Ala. Navistar broke ground on a 110,000 sq. ft. expansion of the Huntsville plant in February 2020 with an initial $125 million investment. An additional $65 million has since been contributed to a total capital investment of more than $190 million in the plant to accommodate increased manufacturing capabilities and to support Navistar’s future growth.

Navistar is positioned to introduce an all-new integrated powertrain to the North American market. This TRATON Group collaborative development program will be a global demonstration of the Group’s common modular system for trucks and buses. A Group-wide modular system enables efficient cross-brand development and production, while still allowing for regional adaptation and validation of the integrated powertrain for the North American market.

Navistar collaborated with Group brands for more than five years on the development of the integrated powertrain. Additionally, Navistar has committed thousands of hours of research and development, and test miles to the validation of the integrated powertrain for the North American market. In preparation for the North American market introduction, Navistar will utilize fleet evaluation units to collect data and real-world input with direct customer feedback from U.S. and Canadian customers.
