Revisions to Navistar’s International
WorkStar truck range have resulted in the launch of a sloping hood option that
offers improved forward visibility for those who do not need front pto or
forward-reaching frame rails.
“It’s all about giving our customers
comfort and convenience,” said Jim Hebe, senior vice president of Navistar’s
North American sales operation. “With improved forward visibility that is now
best in-class and a host of interior enhancements too, the International
WorkStar range now provides a much more driver-focussed environment.”
Compared to a traditional hood, the
optional sloping hood configuration delivers up to 20% better visibility across
the front of the vehicle, allowing vocational truck drivers to do their jobs
much more safely and effectively.
Creature comforts include a redesigned
interior that features premium rosewood trim on the dashboard, steering
wheel-mounted controls, wipe-clean vinyl interior panels and ivory or chrome
bezel black gauges on the instrument panel.
The International WorkStar features tow

engines offering up to 475hp (354Nm) and up to 1,700 foot pounds (2,300Nm) of
