CCW to offer Navistar's MaxxForce 9

Posted on October 4, 2011

Bus remanufacturing and reconditioning company Complete Coach Works (Booth# 1565) will introduce Navistar's (Booth# 1363) MaxxForce 9 engine as its newest clean diesel option for repowered transit buses at EXPO.

The new diesel option is especially suited to vehicle repowers for public transit authorities committed to improving air quality and reducing environmental problems. The MaxxForce 9 engine meets strict EPA 2010 emissions standards without compromising power or durability for demanding start-stop, heavy-traffic routes.

"Public transit fleets are increasingly demonstrating a serious commitment to clean air, and diesel offers a powerful solution," says Macy Neshati, vice president, Complete Coach Works. "We in turn are committed to offering the best alternatives for owners of all bus makes and models, and MaxxForce is a great option for repowers."

The MaxxForce 9 engine provides 300 horsepower and 860 lb.-ft. torque for demanding transit applications. To meet strict emissions standards, MaxxForce engines use Navistar's advanced in-cylinder NOx-reduction technology, which provides bus fleets with significant operational advantages over liquid-urea SCR emissions aftertreatment systems used by other diesel engine makers. These advantages include no secondary operating fluid (liquid urea) to add, no additional wheelbase length to accommodate additional fluid tanks, no additional driver training and ease of maintenance.

MaxxForce engines from Navistar command a dominant share in municipal and public services markets like fire/emergency, school bus and waste collection.

The MaxxForce 9 engine is projected to be available to Complete Coach Works customers in spring 2012.
