WARRENVILLE, Ill. -- Navistar Defense, LLC today announced that it received a $357 million delivery order for an additional 471 International® MaxxPro® Dash vehicles with DXM™ independent suspension.
The order from the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command follows last month’s delivery order for 250 MaxxPro Dash Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) ambulances.
Navistar has quickly grown its fleet of MaxxPro vehicles to more than 8,700 units by leveraging its current commercial capabilities and assets, which includes the proven commercial International® WorkStar® platform. First, the company added the DXM independent suspension solution capability to new production vehicles. This was followed by orders for the new MaxxPro Recovery vehicle and most recently the MaxxPro Dash ambulance. The company has also developed a MaxxPro flatbed truck.
“We have nine major MaxxPro variants in or on their way to theater today thanks to the flexibility of our proven vehicle platforms,” said Archie Massicotte, president, Navistar Defense. “The MaxxPro Dash was the first MRAP to be modified specifically for the Afghan terrain and we have continued to enhance its capabilities all along the way. Keeping our warfighters equipped is priority one.”
While the MaxxPro family of vehicles has contributed to Navistar’s growth into new markets, the company has fielded more than 32,000 vehicles since 2004. This includes sales of the MaxxPro, International® MXT™, as well as vehicles based on the International® PayStar® and WorkStar platforms.
Production of the new units will occur in Garland, Texas, and West Point, Miss. Deliveries will be completed by September 2011. MaxxPro Dash vehicles are powered by MaxxForce® 9.3D engines.
