INTERNATIONAL TerraStar Benefits
Unlike our competition, the class 4/5 TerraStar™ comes from 100 years of commercial-duty truck experience. In fact, it’s built on the three pillars of commercial-duty performance: commercial-grade components, ease of operation and efficient power. Component-wise, TerraStar’s 80,000 PSI frame rails rank best-in-class. It also features a huck-bolted frame and an Allison 1000 transmission. And talk about easy to operate. TerraStar has the largest cab in its class (30% more room for your crew than our leading competitor) and best-in-class visibility (38% better than the leading competitor). TerraStar is a true commercial-duty work truck–the kind you can build your business around.
Just like the customers you serve, who take their electricity or gas or cable service for granted, you need a truck you can count on. That truck is the International® TerraStar.™
TerraStar’s reliability starts with the all-new MaxxForce®7 engine. This fully-capable 300-hp V8 is purpose-built for utility work. And with a cylinder block made of compacted graphite iron, the MaxxForce 7 is lighter and more fuel-efficient than engines made from gray iron.
TerraStar also features MaxxForce Advanced EGR, the only no-hassle, no liquid urea solution for 2010 emissions. Why waste valuable time filling up on urea?
With TerraStar, you can focus your energy on keeping your customers happy.
Pickup & Delivery
In the delivery business, looking ahead can mean the difference between staying on schedule and falling behind. Which is why the designers of the International® TerraStar™ were so focused on visibility.
The fact is, TerraStar™ gives you the best visibility of any truck in its class-an eye-opening 28% better front-forward visibility than the leading competitor. So whether you’re pulling out, backing up or parallel parking, you can do it more quickly, more confidently-and more safely.
TerraStar also comes with the Diamond Logic® electrical system, featuring automated pre-trip inspections, automatic headlights on with wipers and other safety interlocks.
As you can see, efficiency never looked so good.
The easier it is to move your crew from one work site to another, the more productive your landscape business can be. That’s the beauty of owning the International® TerraStar™.
It’s ease of operation begins with visibility. In fact, TerraStar™ gives you the best visibility in its class–28% better front-forward visibility than the leading competitor. This makes maneuvering around neighborhoods and side streets a breeze.
TerraStar also features the largest cab in its class–a full 30% more room for your crew than the leading competitor. So when the job calls for extra hands, it’s no extra hassle to fit them in the truck.
In other words, TerraStar gives your business more room to grow.
Constant road maintenance is a given. You’ve got to keep them clear during the winter, and in good repair during the summer. Trucks need regular maintenance too-something the International® TerraStar™ is built to accommodate.
Its commercial-style, tilt-away hood provides easy access to the engine compartment for routine service and scheduled maintenance. So you can get back on the road more quickly.
TerraStar also features a commercial-duty Allison 1000 transmission, best-in-class 80,000 PSI frame rails and a huck-bolted frame. Which means less overall truck maintenance in the long run.
And more time keeping the roads in repair.
When you make your living at construction sites, you need a truck that keeps going when the going gets tough. A truck that takes a beating, then comes back for more. A truck like the International® TerraStar.™
This vehicle’s steely resolve is the direct result of its commercial-grade components. Not only is TerraStar built on best-in-class 80,000 PSI frame rails, its frame is huck-bolted for additional strength and long-term reliability.
At the heart of the TerraStar’s capacity for hard work you’ll find a proven, commercial-duty Allison 1000 transmission, which gives you optimal on-site performance and dependability. Not to mention a stronger bottom line.
In short, TerraStar is well-adapted to its environment.
