The International TerraStar is a product line of medium duty trucks that was manufactured by International Trucks from 2010 to 2015. Slotted just below the DuraStar in the Class 5 segment[1], the TerraStar became the lightest commercial truck produced by International since the CityStar LCF; it also replaced the 4100 series of the Durastar.

Following the discontinuation of the MaxxForce 7 engine, the TerraStar was discontinued at the end of 2015.

Model overview[edit]

The TerraStar was produced in a either a 4x2 or 4x4 axle configuration. Sharing its cab with the DuraStar, WorkStar, TranStar, and ProStar, the TerraStar is distinguished by its low-profile cab and hood. To lower the cab on the frame, the fuel tanks were moved from below the cab to behind the cab on the frame rails; the TerraStar is distinguished from the DuraStar by the use of square sealed-beam headlights. As with the larger International trucks, the TerraStar was available in two-door, extended-cab, and crew-cab configurations, with a wide variety of bodies fitted by second-stage manufacturers.



Navistar subsidiary IC Bus used the TerraStar chassis in cutaway cab form to develop its smallest bus ever produced, largely as an alternative to vehicles produced on Ford E-450 and GMm Savana chassis. In 2010, the company launched the IC AC-Series shuttle bus, with the IC AE-Series school bus following soon after. As the chassis was not packaged separately from the body, the IC buses based on the TerraStar would not take significant market share from established market players like Ford and GM.
