WORK TRUCK SHOW -- The International TerraStar 4x4 was named Work Truck magazine’s 2014 Work Truck of the Year at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.
Voted on by fleet managers, International TerraStar beat out competitive models including Ford F650/750, Freightliner M2 106, Hino 268A, Isuzu N Series, Kenworth T370 4x4, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van, Mitsubishi Fuso FE125, Ram 4500/5500 and Ram Promaster.
The TerraStar 4x4 also was named 2014 Medium-Duty Commercial Truck of the Year at the annual American Truck Dealers Convention and Exposition earlier this year.
The TerraStar 4x4 offers high strength frame rails at 80,000 PSI and includes a severe service transfer case from Fabco. Powered by the 300-horsepower, 660-pounds-foot 6.4-liter MaxxForce 7 engine, the compacted graphite iron (CGI) engine block provides added strength, while a commercial-duty Allison Optimized 1000 Series transmission optimizes power output.
The TerraStar features the International Diamond Logic electrical multiplexing. Diamond Logic maximizes ease of body integration and helps deliver features such as automated pre-trip inspections, headlights on with wipers, interlocks, programmable switches and more depending on the application.
