New LT series trucks launched by Navistar.
International Truck launched the International LT Series, its new flagship line of Class 8 over-the-road trucks developed through driver centric design and featuring advanced technologies that deliver fuel efficiency, best-in-class up-time and driver appeal.
“The new International LT Series reflects our vision for the future of the trucking industry, with a host of advancements that support improved driver safety and productivity, as well as fuel efficiency and uptime,” said Bill Kozek, president, Truck and Parts, Navistar. “This new vehicle reflects our strong belief that integrating the best technology will provide customers with a significant operating advantage.”
In developing the LT Series, International worked hard to assure that drivers will find each vehicle more comfortable, appealing and user-friendly in every detail, Kozek said.
In keeping with the company’s DriverFirst product design focus, International undertook extensive research with truck drivers, including driver clinics that gathered input from hundreds of drivers. International used this research to design an all-new interior and identified multiple new and improved features that enhance driver appeal.
“To ensure the new LT Series is the most driver-centric Class 8 vehicle we’ve ever built; we gave drivers a voice in its design,” said Jeff Sass, senior vice president, sales and marketing. “Many of our customers tell us that their No. 1 challenge is attracting and retaining drivers, which is why we put so much effort into understanding and responding to drivers’ needs. These improvements also contribute to increased driver ease of use that will boost the vehicle’s productivity.”
