The ProStar® is one of the most efficient trucks available, with exceptional aerodynamic performance that provides operators with fuel economy benefits and reduces vehicle operating costs.
INTERNATIONAL® has applied a range of aerodynamic testing in developing the ProStar®. The end result is a swept-back design with swooping nose, wrap around windshield, set-back ‘A’ pillars and streamlined bumper and guards which allows the truck to more easily push through the air and use less fuel. Cab side extenders are also standard on all variants to further improve real world aerodynamic performance.
Aside from the aerodynamic benefits provided by the ProStar’s short, sloping hood and other cabin features, the design also provides excellent forward visibility for improved safety. Visibility is further enhanced by standard LED headlamps, tail lamps, and daytime running lamps. The cab structure itself also exceeds ECE R29 cab strength requirements, providing additional protection for the driver.
Other standard safety features include ABS brakes with Automatic Traction Control, and a park brake warning alarm that sounds if the key is off and the driver’s door is opened without the park brake being applied. Trucks specified with the ‘UltraShift Plus’ transmission are equipped with additional safety features include auto neutral and Intelligent Hill Start Aid, which prevents roll-back and roll-forward while launching on grades using the foundation wheel brakes.
