Navistar Inc. announced the launch of its heavy-duty International WorkStar vocational trucks powered by the company's 13-liter engine with Selective Catalytic Reduction emissions technology. The WorkStar is the fourth heavy-duty International truck model to transition to SCR technology since December 2012.

The company's portfolio of SCR-based heavy-duty trucks also includes the International ProStar, International PayStar 5900 Set-Back Axle and International 9900i—all available with the Cummins ISX15 engine.

In addition, Navistar's proprietary 13-liter engine with SCR was launched in the ProStar in April and is now available in the WorkStar. The remaining line-up of International heavy-duty truck models will transition to SCR emissions technology in a phased launch in the coming weeks based on volume and customer demand.
