Iveco confirms ProStar arrival next year
International model to hit Australian shores shortly in a number of configurations
Iveco Australia has officially confirmed it will be bringing the International ProStar to Australia next year in a range of specifications.
The news follows ongoing speculation, including from ATN’s Steve Brooks, as to what Iveco’s parent company CNH Industrial had planned for the International brand after taking over the rights from Navistar in October.
While confirming the arrival date, Iveco says the new range will include a day cab, extended cab and integrated full size sleeper cab variants and a choice of five wheelbases.
"All models will be powered by an E5 Cummins X15 SCR engine producing 550hp (410kW) and 1850 lb-ft (2,508Nm) of torque, and operators will be able to select from either manual or fully automatic Eaton transmissions," Iveco says.
"The model mix will see the ProStar well placed to handle applications including tipper and dog work, single trailer line-haul and 34-pallet B-double duties."
While the dealer network for the brand will be unveiled in the new year, Iveco says the ProStar model range will be available in the first quarter of 2017 alongside the truck maker’s Powerstar lineup.
