International Truck announced the launch of the new International® MV™ Series. The next generation of International’s medium-duty vehicles, International reimagined the MV to advance performance, safety, and uptime.
“The new International MV Series features thoughtful design that includes premier safety features, head-turning styling, simplified TEM integration, and uptime enhancements,” says Debbie Shust, vice president, medium-duty truck. “We listened to customers’ feedback and developed a medium-duty vehicle that is custom built for all their needs.”
ENHANCED SAFETY & STYLING
Designed to stand out among International’s product line, International designed the new MV Series for increased maneuverability, visibility, and safety. An aerodynamic hood and breakaway mirrors provide superior visibility for drivers. Additionally, the restyled bumper and black, molded-in-color grille with optional chrome surround deliver attention grabbing looks. The MV Series also includes standard halogen headlights with newly introduced, optional LED headlights to provide longer life and improved visibility.
Several optional collision mitigation enhancements are also available. The Bendix® Wingman® Fusion™ System technology includes adaptive cruise, enhanced collision mitigation, multilane vehicle braking, stationary object alert, lane departure warning, and front radar and cameras. The Bendix BlindSpotter Collision Warning System is equipped with side object detection alert.
ULTIMATE CAPABILITY & BODY INTEGRATION
The new International MV Series features numerous enhancements that increase the performance capability of the vehicle. The high efficiency cooling module eliminates mega-brackets enabling integrated front frame extensions and an improved snowplow upfit offering. Hood-mounted splash panels and on-engine air cleaner improve under-hood access while an available under-hood work light improves daily maintenance checks. Smart chassis packaging changes improve body integration as well as operating costs for a wide variety of applications.
The Diamond Logic® electrical system comes standard. The system allows customized programming for driver and equipment protection, ease of body integration, and greater uptime. Further, hundreds of off-the-shelf features exist for improved safety, examples include: driver safety with the inclusion of pre-trip light inspection; safety on the jobsite with external regen warning; and equipment protection with hydraulic oil power take-off (PTO) shutdown and an outrigger stowed interlock.
The MV Series offers two engine options: the Cummins® B6.7 and L9 with increased fuel efficiency and extended and aligned maintenance intervals.
Corrosion protection improves with InterCoat® ChemGuard on the cab floor as well as optional LINE-X® offering for tough environments.
CONNECTIVITY TO MAXIMIZE UPTIME
Navistar supports the MV Series through OnCommand® Connection, a remote diagnostics system offering a portfolio of connected vehicle services. Customers have the option to receive real-time information to protect their assets through GPS and geofencing capabilities as well as easy-to-understand and actionable vehicle health reports.
The MV Series includes the option for customers to add International® 360. International 360 is a communications platform that allows seamless communication with the International service network and streamline the repair process.
“This is an evolution, rather than a departure, from our existing strategy,” says Diane Hames, vice president, marketing. “The new MV moves the International brand forward and is equipped with the features and technology to be an excellent fit for every customer.”
The new International MV Series makes its first public appearance at the Utility Expo, September 28-30 in Louisville, Kentucky, at booth #N1135. Find out more about the all-new International MV Series, visit www.internationaltrucks.com.
