The International ProStar was 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

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

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]
