- 12:27 pm - May 18th, 2016


Whether you make your living in commercial construction, landscaping or utility work, you need a truck that eats punches but never pulls them. Few trucks are as willing to step into the ring and go the distance as the tough-as-nails International® TerraStar®, an impressive piece of engineering built specifically to be the ultimate commercial-duty truck.

TerraStar was forged from 100 years of truck-building experience, and it shows. The standard V8 turbodiesel engine features high-pressure common-rail fuel injection, dual sequential turbocharged power and a compacted graphite iron block to provide a long 500,000-mile B50 Life. This impressive power plant is mated with a commercial-grade Allison fully automatic transmission, providing the perfect combination of power, quality and durability. The Load-Based Shift Scheduling feature automatically selects between economy and performance shift schedules based on payload and grade. With this much muscle, it’s virtually unstoppable, but it’s still backed by a 5-year warranty.

At 80,000 PSI, the TerraStar’s frame is the strongest in its class. With reinforced huck-bolted construction, it can carry the heaviest commercial construction equipment without breaking a sweat. That means quicker job mobilization and de-mobilization. And the TerraStar offers more than just ample space for your equipment. Compared to the leading competitor, TerraStar gives the driver 7" more interior width, 9" more headroom, 2" more belly room, and 20% more overall cab volume, plus unsurpassed in-cab visibility so that every passenger and piece of equipment can reach the work site and return safe and sound. With the TerraStar, all you have to worry about is getting the job done – the rest is taken care of.
