The Navistar 7000 series is a line of military heavy lift vehicles based on Navistar International's WorkStar truck chassis, and produced by Navistar Defense. The truck is available in a variety of wheel (4×2, 4×4, 6×4, and 6×6) and engine configurations.[2]

In 2005, the US Army ordered 2900 7,000-MV for the Afghan National Army and Iraqi Ministry of Defense and an additional order of 7,000 was added in 2008.[2]

The Canadian Forces Canadian Army had adopted the Navistar Defence LLC Medium Logistics truck. The vehicle fulfills the MSVS MilCOTS (Militarized Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) requirement. As of mid-July 2015, the MSVS SMP (Standard Military Pattern) vehicle has been chosen.[3] Starting in June 2010, 1,300 Navistar units will be replacing part of the MLVW fleet.[4] The civilian designation of the 7000-MV is Navistar 7400 SFA 6×6.

In July 2012, the order for 1500 MSVS SMP trucks was cancelled and being re-evaluated.[5] In July 2015, Canada awarded the SMP contract to Mack Trucks instead.[6] Mack will begin deliver of Kerax-series trucks in 2017 and complete by 2018.[7]
