The new International LoneStar, introduced in February 2008 as the first fuel-efficient “Advanced Classic” big-rig truck, has been certified by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as a SmartWay truck. LoneStar joins the International ProStar with this environmental designation.
The SmartWay program is a voluntary partnership between freight industry sectors and the EPA that establishes recognition and incentives for fuel efficiency improvements and reductions to greenhouse gas emissions. Eligibility for the SmartWay truck certification is based on a set of fuel-saving, low-emission equipment specifications for new Class 8 long-haul tractors.
For a limited time, Navistar is introducing a fuel economy program called MAXXimum MPG to help truck customers order a truck with the right specs to maximize fuel economy and aerodynamics. This program is available on ProStar and LoneStar trucks and includes a $1,000 customer incentive for selecting a Maxximum MPG fuel economy spec.
