International Truck and Engine Corporation, a Navistar company, recently announced that MaxxForce brand diesel engines will meet the stringent U.S. federal 2010 emissions standards for all its core applications without the use of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems.
The company’s strategy is designed to provide customer driven solutions to reduce costs and maintenance needs for buyers of International brand vehicles when the next EPA on-highway emission standards take effect.
All MaxxForce on-highway diesel engines used in International’s core applications will be fully certified to the EPA 2010 emission standards. “This approach will best serve our core customers who value reduced product and service complexity as well as business planning continuity through another period of industry uncertainty,” said Jack Allen, president, International Engine Group. “Coming so soon after 2007 EPA standards, which mandated new engines and after-treatment systems that drove up the price of commercial vehicles, 2010 promises to be a less taxing time for International customers.”
