International Truck and Engine Corp has unveiled a new global brand for its 2007 on-highway automotive engines. Beginning next year, International will offer its expanded line of on-highway engines under the MaxxForce International Diesel Power brand.
The MaxxForce line will range from a four-cylinder 2.8-liter engine up to the company's new offerings in the 11- to 13-liter class. MaxxForce engine-powered International brand commercial trucks in North America will offer proven air- and fuel-management technologies and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems with advanced aftertreatment systems.
These engines for the North American market will be made at International Engine Group's North American facilities, and MaxxForce engines for other global markets will be made at facilities of its South American subsidiary, MWM-International Motores. These facilities include engineering, manufacturing, and technical centers in Melrose Park IL, Huntsville AL, and Sao Paulo, Brazil. MWM-International also will continue to serve South American and global industrial, agricultural, and marine markets with these product brands: Sprint, Acteon, NGD, 10, 229, and MS Series.
MaxxForce engines will be available beginning with the company's 2007 model-year Class 3-8 International commercial trucks, backed by the International dealer service network with 900 locations in North America and dealers in 48 nations. A Euro-emission based MaxxForce engine also will be available in Mexico in 2006 for bus applications.
