International debuts new spec package, offering up to 8% improvement in fuel efficiency

International Trucks (NYSE: NAV) has introduced a new spec package for its LT Series that it says will increase fuel efficiency by up to 8%.

The MPG Package for Fuel Efficiency features proprietary International and supplier-provided enhancements, including an aerodynamic chassis package, predictive cruise control, air dam and bumper seal, as well as a roof fairing and extenders, chassis skirts and energy-efficient wheel covers. When compared to an LT Series vehicle with just roof fairing and extenders, air dam and bumper seal, International says the new package will offer even great fuel efficiency, up to 8%.

“At a time when every one-percent improvement in fuel efficiency can save customers hundreds of dollars per truck per year, this new fuel efficiency spec package can help customers achieve major reductions in their TCO,” said Michael Cancelliere, Navistar president, Truck and Parts. “In addition to savings from fuel efficiency, the LT Series MPG Package provides customers with upfront savings through cost-effective bundling of a range of aerodynamic, fuel-saving features.”

The International LT Series MPG Package is available in day cab, 56-inch hi-rise and 73-inch hi-rise/sky-rise cab models.

“Spec’ing for fuel efficiency can be a complex process,” Cancelliere said. “The LT MPG Package simplifies that process while reducing customer TCO.”
