New Severe Service Vehicle Receives Recognition for Innovative Product in the Construction Industry

LISLE, Ill., Dec. 1, 2016 - Construction Equipment has selected the International® HX620 as one of the favored new construction products of 2016. The HX620 is one of four models in the HX™ Series designed to endure the most punishing of jobsites. The Top 100 New Products of 2016 Award program was conceived to call special attention to the most significant new products announced this year. These awards serve to emphasize innovations, highlighting manufacturers who are investing in research and development and their investments pay off for equipment users in the form of greater productivity, efficiency and safety.

The editorial team from Construction Equipment considered several hundred product introductions and made their Top 100 selections independently, drawing upon their own experience with equipment technology and the equipment marketplace.

"The new International HX Series has generated tremendous excitement since its introduction earlier this year," said Mark Johnson, vice president, marketing, Navistar. "This vehicle is an elegant combination of strength and style in a truck that is built to withstand punishing conditions. We are honored that the HX620 was specifically recognized by Construction Equipment as one of the Top 100 New Products of 2016."

The HX Series addresses a full range of applications for the severe service industry. The trucks were engineered to withstand the most severe construction applications and include prime features such as an industry-leading 12.5" x .5" single rail delivering 3.5 million RBM at 13% less weight than that of a double 10" rail, a 40 degree wheel cut with 425 series tires for improved maneuverability and an all-new standard cab air suspension for a supremely comfortable ride. The HX Series is purpose-built to deliver Uptime in every aspect of its productivity, efficiency, reliability and performance.
