NASHVILLE, Tenn. – International Truck is set to launch the International A26 engine today for the Class 8 market at the 2017 TMC Annual Meeting and Exhibition here.

Driven by a commitment to deliver customer uptime, the A26 was developed through an initiative called Project Alpha, which brought together a new team of the industry’s foremost powertrain engineers. The initiative pursued a fresh approach that emphasized simplicity over complexity and using only proven components to deliver industry-leading uptime.

Key features of the A26 Engine include:

  • Every component is engineered to maximize uptime.
  • At 2,299 pounds, the A26 is the lightest engine in its class.
  • The most efficient engine offered in International’s on-highway lineup.
  • It’s the quietest engine in International’s lineup.
  • Hundreds of thousands of hours of “key life” and dyno testing went into the engine, and
  • Millions of real-world test miles have gone into it.
