The International ProStar is a Class 8 Commercial vehicle manufactured by International Trucks.

The ProStar cab unit provides seating for two, sleeper area, powered by the MaxxForce family of engines and the Cummins ISX 15.

Manufacturing[edit]

The ProStar was formerly built at the Chatham, Ontario plant, but the plant has been shuttered in 2009. Since 2009, ProStar® production is spread to two North America plants, Springfield, Ohio and Escobedo, Mexico).[1]

History[edit]

International introduced the ProStar in 2006 and touted the platform as the most fuel efficient truck in the Class 8 segment.[2] Starting in 2010 the ProStar gained the +(Plus) moniker.

This name change represented physical changes to the truck that included a re-engineered overhead console, a nine percent reduction in cab noise and increased in-cab storage.[3]
