Driven By Reliability !
The all New 2019 International Prostar X15 550 is in it for the long haul!
Powered by Cummins' X15 in-line six-cylinder turbo-diesel, the ProStar is pitched straight at the 34-pallet B-double configuration, but it's finding favour in single-trailer applications too. This is a very flexible truck in terms of application, and that flexibility is further underlined by its Jost air slider turntable, which enables the turntable to move forwards or back in 50mm increments over a range of 350mm.
The Cummins engine itself also backs up that sentiment. Although we sampled the truck with the engine in its standard 550hp/1850lbft (410kW/2508Nm) rating, this SCR-equipped unit (with 90lt AdBlue tank) can be tuned from 475hp up to 600hp. Our test truck is also fitted with an extra fuel tank, giving 1030 litres of capacity.
With a wheelbase of 4700mm, this 6x4 ProStar has a GCM of 90 tonne although that figure can be boosted to 110 tonne under application, for those intent on heavy haulage applications involving dollies and 4x8 low loaders, for example. In any case, the standard GCM will cover a double road train, and any number of other configurations on the way.
The sharply raked bonnet and curved windscreen simply deliver a view very few bonneted trucks can match, and this is backed up by large and virtually blur-free side and spot mirrors.
