Navistar announces pricing for trucks with 2010 engines

29 July 2009

Navistar announced price increases of $6,000-$8,000 for 2010 emission compliant International trucks powered by MaxxForce Advanced EGR diesel engines. The price increase depends on the engine model:

Last month, Navistar announced a price increase of $6,000 for its 2010 buses, including all IC Bus school bus models.

Increases will come in the form of a non-discountable surcharge applied to each vehicle’s base price.

To meet the EPA 2010 NOx emission requirements, the MaxxForce engines will use exhaust gas recirculation—“Advanced EGR”—coupled with a number of engine technologies:

The fuel economy in EGR engines is expected to be lower compared to engines using the competing 2010 emission technology, urea-SCR. Nvertheless, according to Navistar, MaxxForce Advanced EGR engines will still deliver lower total operating costs for customers.

The price increase for the heaviest Navistar engines with EGR technology is about 17% ($1,600) less compared to some 2010 engines with urea-SCR. In March, Volvo announced a surcharge of $9,600 applicable to new trucks with SCR technology powered by Volvo D11, D13 and D16 engines, as well as by the Cummins ISX.
