Spartan & Navistar Sign Multi-Year Engine Deal

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Spartan Chassis, Inc. today announced that a multi-year supply agreement has been signed with the Navistar Engine Group, allowing for the expansion of clean diesel engine offerings on the Gladiator.

The announcement was made at the Spartan Chassis 2011 Partnership Meeting, which is well attended by Emergency Response Dealers and Fire Apparatus Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).

Spartan is offering the EPA 2010-compliant MaxxForce® 13 Big Bore engine on its 2011 Gladiator models. The engine features Navistar's advanced in-cylinder emissions technology that minimizes the requirement for after treatment components, fluids and weight in order to maintain critical space for body applications.

"This agreement couples the advanced technology of Spartan and the Navistar Engine Group for the benefit of our emergency response customers," said John Sztykiel, president and CEO of Spartan Motors. "The MaxxForce 13 delivers enhanced performance, great fuel economy and low cost of ownership to meet the industry's evolving needs. It also adds to our portfolio of compelling products and is another proof point supporting our ability to provide the broadest line of engines for the markets in which we compete."

Navistar's 2010 EPA-compliant MaxxForce 13 engine delivers a horsepower rating of 475, and features an in-cylinder emissions solution that utilizes four key technologies: advanced high-pressure fuel injection, advanced air management, an optimized combustion strategy and proprietary electronic calibrations. MaxxForce engines are backed though a support network of 587 dealers and 7,000 trained mechanics across the United States, Canada and Mexico.
