It's time for a truck that's built to last twice as long, no matter what you throw its way.
When it comes to getting the tough jobs done, few trucks are as ready to get down and dirty as the International® TerraStar.® That’s because the rugged TerraStar was built from the ground up to be the ultimate commercial-duty truck. TerraStar hails from 100 years of truck-building experience. That expertise shows in every facet of this truck. We built TerraStar® with room to spare. Compared to the leading competitor, TerraStar gives you 7" more interior width, 9" more headroom, 2" more belly room, and 20% more overall cab volume. TerraStar is built on the three pillars of commercial-duty performance: ease of operation, efficient power and commercial grade components. So if you need a tough, reliable and efficient work truck that’ll get the job done, the TerraStar isn’t just up for the job—it was born for it.
A CLASS UNTO ITSELF
DESIGNED TO LAST TWICE AS LONG
500,000 B50 Life
The TerraStar’s engine is a proven V8 turbodiesel specifically designed to meet the needs of medium-duty commercial truck customers. Premium features include:
• High-pressure common-rail fuel system
• Dual sequential turbochargers
• Compacted graphite iron block
The engine offers a 500,000 B50 life.
Allison 1000 SeriesTransmission
The International® TerraStar® with an Allison fully automatic transmission fits your needs with commercial-grade quality and durability. The efficient MaxxForce® 7 engine and the Allison 1000 Series transmission delivers a potent combination of power, performance, reliability and fuel economy. Shift Energy Management provides better engine/transmission integration to achieve optimum shift quality. Load-Based Shift Scheduling automatically selects between economy and performance shift schedules based on actual payload and grade. Backed by a 5 year warranty, the Allison 1000 Series transmission can’t be beat.
Fabco Transfer Case
For decades, Fabco has been the leader in all wheel drive transfer cases and steer drive axles for medium and heavy duty vehicles. Because of the uniquely robust design of the gear driven TC-28 transfer case, TerraStar 4X4 owners will have vehicle capabilities exceeding the other Class 4 & 5 truck offerings in the market. Designed to last longer and take higher loads than chain driven transfer cases from the competitors like Ford and Dodge, its helical forged gears are 94% stronger than gears in other transfer cases and are designed to outlast its weaker chain driven competitors. The TC-28’s Cast Iron housing provides more strength and less deflection than competitive transfer cases with Aluminum housings.
The Strongest Frame Rail
At 80,000 PSI, the TerraStar’s frame is the strongest in its class and was designed to take on commercial grade loads like the rest of the International Truck lineup. Weaker frames on competitive trucks will flex and bend under heavy loads.
Our cab is designed to meet the most strict government roll over requirements for commercial trucks and made of high strength, double sided galvanized steel. When it comes to cab size, the TerraStar has you covered. We built the TerraStar with room to spare. Compared to the leading competitor, TerraStar gives you 7" more interior width, 9" more headroom, 2" more belly room, and 20% more overall cab volume.
Just like the customers you serve, who take their electricity or gas or cable service for granted, you need a truck you can count on. That truck is the International® TerraStar®
TerraStar®’s reliability starts with a fully-capable 300-hp V8 purpose-built for utility work. And with a cylinder block made of compacted graphite iron, it's lighter and more fuel-efficient than engines made from gray iron.
With TerraStar®, you can focus your energy on keeping your customers happy.
Pickup & Delivery
In the delivery business, looking ahead can mean the difference between staying on schedule and falling behind. Which is why the designers of the International® TerraStar® were so focused on visibility.
The fact is, TerraStar® gives you the best visibility of any truck in its class-an eye-opening 38% better front-forward visibility than the leading competitor. So whether you’re pulling out, backing up or parallel parking, you can do it more quickly, more confidently-and more safely.
TerraStar® also comes with the Diamond Logic® electrical system, featuring automated pre-trip inspections, automatic headlights on with wipers and other safety interlocks.
As you can see, efficiency never looked so good.
