Maxx Force 13 Beats Competition in MPG Tests

Independent Tests Prove International ProStar+ with MaxxForce 13 Advanced EGR Beats Competition Results Show Nearly 1% to 2.5% Advantage in Fluid Economy

WARRENVILLE, Ill. (July 19, 2010) – Navistar, Inc. announced today results from independent, third-party testing which prove the new 2010 International® ProStar®+ Class 8 tractor with the MaxxForce® 13 Advanced EGR engine is the industry leader in fluid economy—a measurement of diesel fuel plus liquid urea consumed and the new standard of comparison for Class 8 trucks.

“With the ProStar+, we continue to have the most efficient Class 8 truck on the road,” said Jim Hebe, Navistar senior vice president, North American sales operations. “We weren’t satisfied with simply being the best—we were determined to make the best even better and the results speak for themselves.”

Until recently, comparisons of Class 8 trucks were centered on fuel economy, with the first-generation International ProStar as the industry leader. However, today, with different trucks offering different technologies for 2010 emissions, fuel economy doesn’t tell the whole story. Competitor’s trucks offer a liquid urea SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) solution and, like diesel fuel, liquid urea costs money.
