Navistar International Corp. The Lisle, Ill. Navistar will have to be able to capture sales from customers who previously would have purchased a heavy-duty Ford F-Series truck, Cancelliere said. Navistar exited the segment when it scuttled the International TerraStar model in GM is building the cab interiors — the dash looks similar to that of a Chevrolet Silverado pickup — and the body panels. It also is supplying a 6. Navistar is contributing the frame and is assembling the GM-built body panels.
GM will sell its own version, branded as a Silverado. To gain distance from rival offerings from mainstream automakers, Navistar is emphasizing the heavy-duty, commercial aspects of the CV. It features a gear-driven transfer case, a high-strength, low-alloy steel frame rail and a painted chassis for corrosion resistance.
The truck has a commercial-style, forward-tilting hood, allowing easy access to the engine and routine maintenance points. The engine will produce up to horsepower engine and pound-feet of torque and can be mated to two six-speed Allison transmission options. Depending on configuration, the truck has a maximum gross weight of 37, pounds. Vocational trucks of such size are typically used for hauling trailers, utility maintenance, tow trucks, conversions into ambulance use and other services.
Navistar said the CV will accommodate a wide range of specialized body types. It has straight frame rails with no rivets on the top flange, providing a flat surface from cab to axle for easier chassis mounting of truck bodies such as a towing rig or cherry picker. The company said it also designed a comfortable cab that will be welcoming to drivers familiar with lighter pickup trucks.
It has premium materials similar to middle trim levels of light truck offerings. It features an 8-inch color touchscreen with navigation and, for the first time in an International truck, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Buyers of these trucks are often small businesses, purchasing the vehicles just one or two at time. Navistar should be able to gain some sales, but it is a tough market to break into, said Antti Lindstrom, an analyst with IHS Markit. What fuel mileage can I expect with the lightest cv?

So you might be curious about the CV for commercial vehiclewhich fills the void left when the Navistar dropped its TerraStar several years ago. This truck series also fills a gap for General Motors, which left the medium-duty market in the face of the Great Recession in GM tried selling its midrange products, which at the time included Class 4 through 7 trucks and Baby 8s.
Navistar considered buying the line, but instead brought out its TerraStarusing purpose-built chassis and cabs from larger Internationals.
Partly because of problems with its MaxxForce V-8 diesel, that model lasted only a few years. Meanwhile, GM had simply walked away from the mid-range business. As the economy revived, Navistar and GM decided to re-enter this segment, and agreed several years ago to jointly develop a new series.
Thus GM and Navistar are partners in this new line, while Chevrolet and International are competitors. Per the agreement, GM supplies the engine and, through Allison, the automatic transmission. It also furnishes completely trimmed cabs, which are based on lighter-duty Silverado pickups and cab-chassis models. Navistar supplies the chassis, and builds both product lines at its plant in Springfield, Ohio.
Full production began in early December and dealers began receiving the trucks soon after, both companies said. As befits a modern truck, electronics abound and multiple infotainment options are available, including an 8-inch color touch screen with navigation and, for the first time in an International truck, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
I left most of that stuff alone and concentrated on the driving experience. Yes, there was the pickup resemblance, but with its stout frame and suspensions, this CV felt like the heavier truck that it is.

The steel dump bed was empty, so the ride was stiff and choppy at times, but that also meant that acceleration was brisk.
The diesel makes as much as horsepower and lb. The Allison autotranny works smoothly and efficiently and is renowned for its durability. Up- and downshifts were almost imperceptible.
I did notice a slight shuddering as the truck started out from a dead stop; Kelley guessed that it was the torque converter locking up. He seems qualified to judge such things because in his past life he was involved in the mechanical end of motorsports, building racing engines and chassis, along with two years as a NASCAR driver.
Of course, this CV was no race car—it was electronically limited to 65 mph—but its handling and steering were taut and precise, and brakes were strong. The truck was nimble, quick, and fun to drive.
Up and down buttons were on a tethered remote box inside the cab; the empty box went up and down fast.Service Trucks International offers a full line of Eagle Pro bodies to meet all of your service fleet needs.

Haha yes Newdude I remember. The short-lived Sterling Bullet! And while it looks nice, what a comedown for International…surprised its basically a regrilled Chevy in this instance. Cross branding is a good utilization of resources — IF it makes sense. Word on the street has been that neither Dodge nor Freightliner dealers are not too good at servicing the Sprinter. I thought it was a real IH truck. Its an International with some GM. Since International has went down the crapper in since years, and GM since This will be a perfect match for this pair.
