Designed Around the Needs of Truck Drivers

The design for the new International ProStar did not begin on a sketchpad or a computer screen. They evolved from the opinions, input and needs of drivers like you. After all, you’re the ones who turn our trucks into their home offices, the ones who depend on them every day.

With your feedback in mind, we increased foot room for added comfort during long hauls. And we improved clutch pedal feel for easier shifting and less fatigue. Because you wanted more storage space, we also redesigned the cabin, adding up to 50% more total storage.

Make More By Saving More

International ProStar lines of semi trucks are built on innovation based on reducing the cost of driving. What these innovations add up to is a 7% fuel efficiency advantage over any class 8 on the road, conserving 1,400 gallons per truck annually. ProStar delivers where it counts, and that means outstanding fuel efficiency. Combine that with phenomenal service features and several power options, and you’ve got the most innovative and advanced heavy duty truck on the road.

 Heavy Duty Doesn’t Mean Costly

ProStar+ with MaxxForce 13 weighs up to 1,000 lbs less than similarly spec’d competitive models, giving drivers more capacity for increased payloads. Heavier payloads mean more money in your pocket. Count the yearly numbers and you see how driving an International ProStar truck gives you more at the bottom line.
