Navistar Defense, LLC received a $123 million delivery order from the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command for an additional 175 International® MaxxPro® Dash vehicles with DXM™ independent suspension. The order also includes parts for the company’s Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles. Since 2007, the company has been contracted to produce more than 8,000 (7,839 + 175) MaxxPro MRAP units. While the MaxxPro family of vehicles has contributed to Navistar’s growth into new markets, the company has received orders for more than 30,000 vehicles since 2004. This includes sales of the MaxxPro, International® MXT™, as well as vehicles based on the International® PayStar® and WorkStar platforms.
MaxxPro Dash vehicles are powered by MaxxForce® 9.3D engines. Production of the new units will be completed by Summer 2011.
