International adds a new model HX520 to HX Series work truck line

International adds a new model HX520 to HX Series work truck line

International Truck unveiled its fourth model of the HX Series line-up at the World Truck Show 2016 – the HX520, a 120″ BBC set-forward axle truck or tractor designed to serve the heavy haul tractor, construction dump and platform stake/crane markets.

International bills its HX Series line of Class 8 units as a premium vocational truck. Three models – HX515, HX615 and HX620 – were introduced at the 2016 World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas in February.

“We have been generating a steady stream of truck orders since we launched the HX Series and that number is growing by the day,” says Jeff Sass, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, Navistar. “We expect demand for the HX Series to continue to grow with the HX520 debut.”

Isuzu reveals new four-cylinder class 6 truck

Isuzu reveals new four-cylinder class 6 truck

Isuzu Commercial Truck knows its niche so well that those that may balk at the 4-cylinder engine which powers its new class 6 truck really don’t register that much of a concern.

Following the 2018 Isuzu FTR unveiling at the Work Truck Show in Indiana, Brian Tabel, executive director of marketing at Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, was quick to defend the automaker’s decision to power a medium duty truck with its proven 4HK1-TC 4-cylinder, 5.2-liter turbocharged engine, a segment first.

“Some people may be concerned about that, but the point is that about 15 years ago, when you were going to buy a car, it was going to be a V6 or a V8. Odds are, if you were going to buy a car today, it’s going to be either a four cylinder, or four cylinder turbo and then go up from there. Again, this is going to be one of those trucks that’s going to lead that path. People don’t necessarily need all that horsepower and torque, especially in an urban area where our truck sells very well. The maneuverability, the visibility of the truck is probably going to be one of the best in class, for sure.”

“The other aspect he didn’t think about was all the tickets he used to get parking in the street,” Tabel said. However, it’s the low cost of ownership that plays higher with consumers than the notion of avoiding parking tickets. “The low cost of ownership will be key,” Tabel explained. “Because people look at that, along with visibility, and maneuverability, and it’s probably going to be unsurpassed in that market.”

Although horsepower and torque ratings have not been finalized, the company noted that the 4HK1 engine is well known for its high torque output. The powerplant will be mated to an Allison 2000 Series automatic transmission. The engine carries a B10 durability of 310,000 miles, meaning that 90 percent of engines should reach that mileage before requiring an overhaul.

Eight wheelbase configurations will accommodate bodies from 16 feet to 30 feet, allowing for a wide variety of body applications. A new back-of-cab design provides more space for body applications compared to the previous F-Series truck. Like all Isuzu trucks, the FTR will feature a low-cab-forward design that increases visibility and maneuverability.

Pricing, available configurations, power ratings and additional features and specifications will be released in mid-2017 at around the same time when the truck will be available for purchase.
