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.
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. Starting in June 2010, 1,300 Navistar units will be replacing part of the MLVW fleet. 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. In July 2015, Canada awarded the SMP contract to Mack Trucks instead. Mack will begin deliver of Kerax-series trucks in 2017 and complete by 2018.
