New fuel efficiency packages introduced for International LT Series

International Truck has introduced new powertrain packages to its International LT Series MPG Fuel Efficiency Packages.

The company says the packages are now available for the International A26 and Cummins X15 engines in direct-drive and overdrive offerings. The packages combine exceptional engine ratings with the lightweight Eaton Endurant transmission, predictive cruise control, high efficiency rear axles, and rear axle ratios as low as 2.15 for optimal fuel economy, International says.

“Improving fuel efficiency is a major opportunity for a fleet to reduce its Total Cost of Ownership,” says Jim Nachtman, director, heavy-duty, marketing, Navistar. “We took a holistic approach when developing the MPG Powertrain Packages – from the engine and transmission, to the rear axles and lubricants – to easily maximize fuel efficiency.”

The MPG Fuel Efficiency Packages will soon include a second Aerodynamic option available for the International LT Series day cab, 56-in. hi-rise and 73-in. hi-rise/sky-rise cab models, which will be available for order this spring. The new highest-efficiency spec incorporates proprietary and supplier-provided enhancements included in the first Aerodynamic Package, as well as predictive cruise control and aerodynamic drive wheel fairings.

“With so many fuel-efficient technologies available, the spec’ing process can be daunting,” adds Nachtman. “Through our MPG Fuel Efficiency Aerodynamic and Powertrain Packages, we’re making it easier than ever for fleets to enhance performance while reducing Total Cost of Ownership.”
