2012 International ProStar+ Hi Rise Sleeper
First, let's talk the fluid economy of the ProStar+. This is not to be confused with fuel economy. Fuel economy only addresses the cost of diesel per mile. Fluid economy addresses the combination of diesel cost per mile and liquid urea. Liquid urea is an additional fluid that is needed by trucks with an SCR emissions solution. The MaxxForce 13 engine of the ProStar+ includes Advanced EGR which is an emissions solution that does not require liquid urea.
One will also enjoy increased savings on fuel and larger payloads thanks to other aspects of the ProStar+. The ProStar+ comes in at almost 1000 pounds less (on average) than similarly specced and outfitted trucks. An improved aerodynamic design in addition to the lighter weight gives the ProStar+ upwards of a 2.5% better fluid efficiency than that of competitors.
The MaxxForce 13 engine provides a completely hassle-free no emissions solution to meet 2010 standards. It is fully compliant with EPA standards and is the only engine on the market currently that that has a SCR emissions solution but does not require liquid urea. The engine uses a Compacted Graphic Iron cylinder block which is 40% stiffer, has 75% higher tensile strength, and 200% greater fatigue resistance than traditional iron used in standard Class 8 diesel engines. The MaxxForce 13 is lighter, stronger, and with lower vibrations that help extend its life all while providing a powerful experience.
