The Navistar homepage reports that first MaxxForce big bore engine was recently presented in a ceremony at North Central International, International’s newest dealership in North Mankato, Minn.
A 2009 International TranStar with a MaxxForce 13 engine was officially delivered to Wayne Viessman of Cliff Viessman, Inc.
“Viessman has been a good customer of ours,” said Steve Hatlestad of North Central International. “They helped us with our field testing and we’re proud to be supplying them with TranStars. The addition of the MaxxForce engine is the next step in providing great products for our great customers.”
Viessman was confident in choosing the MaxxForce 13 to power his TranStar because of the engine’s power, reliability and improved fuel economy.
“We’re very happy with what we’ve been seeing with results,” said Viessman. “We’re a very weight conscious company and with the new MaxxForce engine, we probably are about 325 to 350 pounds lighter than we were with the engine we were using before.”
The new MaxxForce 11 and MaxxForce 13 Big Bore engines offer commercial truck buyers a fuel-efficient, powerful, durable and startlingly quiet engine in an integrated package backed by the largest channel of commercial truck service locations in the United States and Canada.
“The next chapter in providing integrated solutions for select heavy trucks and big bore engines begins today,” said Tom Baughman, General Manager, Heavy Vehicle Center, Navistar. “MaxxForce Big Bore engines are now officially in the market.”
