April 19, 2013 By: Trucking News Staff Tags: Equipment

Navistar International Corp. re-launched its classic International 9900i and PayStar 5900 SBA models during this month’s ExpoCam, Canada’s National Truck Show. The two models now feature the high-horsepower capabilities of the Cummins ISX15 engine with SCR, joining the company’s rugged ProStar with the ISX15.

Jack Allen, president, North America Truck and Parts, Navistar, said the proven ISX15 engine offers robust electronic controls and horsepower ratings that range from 400 to 600 horsepower with 1,450- to 2,050-pound feet of torque for power and performance. He said customers can expect to see the same classically chiseled hood with a large selection of chrome options for the 9900i, while the heavy-duty PayStar 5900 promises unsurpassed strength and maneuverability with its frame rail options and aluminum cab.

Production of both vehicles is well underway and the company is now taking orders. The 9900i is available exclusively with the ISX15 engine, while the PayStar 5900 is also available with the MaxxForce 13 engine with SCR.

The announcement comes just four months after the first ProStar equipped with the Cummins ISX15 with SCR rolled off the production line.
