Other features include Daimler’s BlueTec SCR emission control technology, extended service intervals (18,000 miles) and the company’s five-year/175,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.
The FE models feature dual-caliper hydraulic disc service brakes with vacuum servo assist and ABS on all four wheels. The FG 4×4 uses hydraulic drum service brakes with ABS all around. All models include an electronic brake override system.
Canter FE models with a 110.2-inch wheelbase feature a 34.1-foot turning circle, which the company says is “shorter than the turning diameter of a MINI Cooper (35.1 feet).”
Navistar unveiled the International TerraStar 4×4 commercial truck at the show. A 4×2 model was launched last year.
The new truck features a 300-horsepower, 6.4-liter MaxxForce 7 V-8 engine, delivering 660 foot-pounds of torque. This engine features a compacted graphite iron (CGI) block that offers high strength without added weight. The TerraStar features MaxxForce Advanced EGR emissions technology.
The TerraStar features what Navistar says is best-in-class visibility. With an industry-best 107-inch BBC, it offers outstanding maneuverability. There is room for three adults to fit comfortably in the front seat. The TerraStar is also available with optional extended cab or crew cab configurations.
