New Class 4/5 Truck Offers True Commercial-Grade Option for Growing Businesses
International Truck today launched the International® CV™Series, the only Class 4/5 truck that is designed, distributed and supported by a manufacturer specializing in commercial vehicles.
“When a start-up business moves to the scale-up stage, the International CV Series provides a truck that will take their business to the next level,” said Michael Cancelliere, Navistar’s president, Truck and Parts. “We’ve designed, built and tested the CV Series to deliver the commercial-grade power, reliability and practicality that growing businesses require, along with the comfort, safety features and easy drivability that drivers appreciate. And we are backing it up with the expertise of the International dealer network, the only network in this category 100 percent dedicated to commercial vehicles.”
Commercial-Grade Design, Heavy-Duty Details
The CV Series’ commitment to support growing businesses is reflected in the vehicle’s many commercial-grade features, starting with a gear-driven transfer case, a high-strength, low-alloy steel frame rail and the industry’s only painted chassis for enhanced longevity and corrosion resistance.
For faster, more convenient service, the CV Series includes a commercial-style forward-tilting hood, which provides easy access to the engine and to routine maintenance points. Under that hood is the powerful International 6.6-liter, 350-horsepower engine with 700 lb.-ft. of torque. Equipped with that engine and two Allison transmission options, the CV is capable of handling up to a maximum GCWR of 37,500 lbs.
The CV Series is also proven rugged: like all International commercial trucks, it was tested in extreme environments, including 40 degrees below zero Fahrenheit in Fairbanks, Alaska and 115 degrees Fahrenheit in Apache, Arizona, as well as high-altitude testing at 12,000 feet in Loveland Pass, Colorado.
“The CV Series features a long list of heavy-duty details that would only be found on a truck designed by commercial truck engineers,” said David Majors, Navistar vice president, Product Development. “Our engineers had one mission: to create the toughest, most capable, most upfit-friendly Class 4 and 5 truck to be found at any work site.”
Fit to Be Upfitted
Consistent with the CV Series’ commercial-grade toughness is its ability to accommodate the wide range of specialized body types that growing businesses need.
Straight frame rails with no rivets on the top flange provide a clean area from cab to axle, making it easy to mount bodies for virtually any commercial-grade application. Like other International trucks, the CV Series is outfitted with HuckBolt® chassis fasteners that provide consistently superior clamping force without re-torqueing and won’t come loose even in extreme environments.
Accommodating the configuration options required by different bodies, the CV Series offers a dual battery box mounted under the cab. The CV Series also includes multiple fuel tank options, optional exhaust outlets to suit the vocation and body, and multiple wheelbase options that can suit almost any application.
CV Series customers also have access to the same Truck Specialty Center expertise as all International customers. At these centers, which are fully owned and operated by International Truck, experts provide quick, efficient and cost-effective custom engineering solutions.
“The CV Series is the only truck in the segment that can take advantage of this level of customization,” Cancelliere said. “No one has more experience at body integration than International Truck.”
Commercial Expertise Beyond the Norm
Building on the CV Series’ commercial pedigree is the International dealer network’s commercial expertise, which offers critical service and support for a growing business. The network’s dealership salespersons specialize in commercial transportation sales and spec’ing, making it easy for a customer to pick the configuration and specs that are right for any vocational application. In addition, International’s Application Engineering Team offers access to vocational engineering experts who can help customers design a custom configuration geared to their application.
Expert service is assured through the International dealer network, which is the industry’s largest, with more dedicated commercial truck bays than are offered by any competitor in the segment. Service is also backed by a commercial-grade parts network where 98 percent of parts are available through either dealer inventory or International’s highly efficient network of parts distribution centers.
The International dealer network’s more than 700 service locations feature more than 7,600 ASE-certified commercial diesel-trained technicians in the U.S. and more than 1,900 in Canada – a critical advantage over automotive-based service networks.
“Our network is committed to providing the expertise needed to keep your business moving,” said Cancelliere. “No matter the location, if a customer needs service, help is likely to be nearby.”
DriverFirst™ Philosophy for Automotive-Like Comfort
On top of its commercial-grade ruggedness and configurability, the CV Series also delivers the comfort, safety features and easy drivability that customers have come to associate with the International DriverFirst™ philosophy.
The truck offers automotive-like comfort, featuring premium interior finishes and outstanding driver ergonomics. Multiple infotainment options are available, including an 8-inch color touch screen with navigation and, for the first time in an International truck, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Added comfort is offered by the segment’s only optional air ride suspension with an engine-mounted compressor, which can be used to adjust height and provide a smooth ride for cargo protection and crew comfort.
“The CV Series has been compared to a field office with perks,” Cancelliere said. “Our philosophy is that driver comfort is critical to get the job done smoothly and efficiently, and the CV Series brings that philosophy to life.”

All-New 2019 Toyota RAV4 Breaks the Mold for the Segment It Created
Best-seller Arrives in December and Starts with $25,500 MSRP
The original Toyota RAV4 arrived in the United States 22 years ago, casting the mold for a whole new industry segment, which evolved into the compact crossover SUV.
With the all-new, fifth-generation 2019 Toyota RAV4, the vehicle premieres, yet again, at the forefront – both for the Toyota brand and for the segment. Dealership arrivals can’t come soon enough, with 2019 RAV4 gas models set to arrive in December, and RAV4 Hybrid models following in late March 2019.
The first RAV4 was a true game-changer, but no one knew at the time just how big of a market shift it would create. RAV4 is the currently the best-selling vehicle in its class, doubling volume over the last five years to sales of nearly 408,000 in the U.S. in 2017. That makes RAV4 Toyota’s best-selling vehicle in the U.S., and the best-selling non-pickup truck in the country.
New RAV4 powertrains increase performance while reducing fuel consumption. Second-generation Toyota Safety Sense (TSS 2.0) comes standard.
Beneath the 2019 RAV4’s bolder sheet metal, the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA-K) platform provides the robust foundation for capability, comfort and safety. The longer wheelbase and wider front and rear tracks provide a stable, confident driving platform. Shorter front and rear overhangs aid the RAV4’s trail driving capability.
Power and efficiency both make a leap in the 2019 RAV4 thanks to the new 203-horsepower Dynamic Force 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder engine paired with an 8-speed Direct-Shift Automatic Transmission in the gas models. In the RAV4 Hybrid, the engine is teamed with Toyota Hybrid System II (THS II) with Electronically-Controlled Continuously-Variable Transmission (ECVT) that generates 219 combined net total system horsepower. The RAV4 Hybrid also is the efficiency leader of the lineup with preliminary manufacturer estimated mpg of 41/37/39 (City/Hwy/Comb).
In addition to standard front-wheel drive, RAV4 gas models offer two types of available all-wheel drive. The new, segment- and Toyota-first, Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive with Rear Driveline Disconnect comes standard on AWD-equipped Limited gas and Adventure grade models.
Every 2019 RAV4 model is equipped with Entune 3.0 multimedia, including Wi-Fi Connect powered by Verizon, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant capability, and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
The 2019 Toyota RAV4 gas models will be offered in five grades: LE, XLE, XLE Premium, Adventure and Limited. RAV4 HV will be offered in four grades: LE HV, XLE HV, XSE HV and Limited HV.
No matter the grade, every RAV4 is a winning choice, whether it’s for a city exploration, a weekend trip to the countryside, or a jaunt on the trails. With five gas models and four hybrid models, the 2019 RAV4 arrives at dealerships with an option for everyone.
Volvo Trucks Provides Autonomous Transport Solution to Brønnøy Kalk AS
Volvo Trucks has just signed a landmark agreementwith Brønnøy Kalk AS in Norway to provide its first commercial autonomous solution transporting limestone from an open pit mine to a nearby port.
To view the Multimedia News Release, please click:
The solution for Brønnøy Kalk AS consists of limestone being transported by six autonomous Volvo FH trucks on a five kilometer stretch through tunnels between the mine itself and the crusher. Tests of this solution have been carried out successfully and will continue throughout 2018 to become fully operational by the end of 2019.
The agreement follows recent successful automation projects involving mining, sugar cane harvesting and refuse collection. Yet this commercial solution represents an exciting first for Volvo Trucks. Rather than purchasing autonomous trucks, Brønnøy Kalk is buying a transport solution – specifically the transport of the limestone between the two hubs.
“This is an important step for us,” says Raymond Langfjord, Managing Director of the mine. “The competition in the industry is tough. We are continuously looking to increase our efficiency and productivity long-term, and we have a clear vision of taking advantage of new opportunities in technology and digital solutions. We were searching for a reliable and innovative partner that shares our focus on sustainability and safety. Going autonomous will greatly increase our competitiveness in a tough global market.”
“We are proud to be able to present an autonomous solution which will meet the challenges of our customers both in terms of safety, reliability and profitability,” says Claes Nilsson, President of Volvo Trucks. The global transport needs are continuously changing at a very high pace and the industry is demanding new and advanced solutions to stay ahead. Our aim is to be the leader of the development of products and services to respond to these demands,” continues Claes Nilsson.
“It is exciting to reach this point where we introduce autonomous solutions, says Sasko Cuklev, Director Autonomous Solutions at Volvo Trucks. By working in a confined area on a predetermined route, we can find out how to get the best out of the solution and tailor it according to specific customer needs. This is all about collaborating to develop new solutions, providing greater flexibility and efficiency as well as increased productivity.”
The agreement involves a deal whereby the customer buys a total transport service and pays per tonne delivered.

High Costs of the Rear View Mirror Devices Financially Stunts Growth in Market
However, this market is substantially hindered due to less availability of high tech rear view mirror devices. Moreover, high costs of these devices might contribute to steep expenses associated with high end vehicles. This might discourage those having less disposable income from buying such automobiles, thereby hindering the market’s growth from a financial perspective. Moreover, shortage of necessary manpower required to manufacture the devices in underdeveloped regions too poses as a prime obstacle in this sector. Nonetheless, several players are expected to regulate costs of the automotive rear view mirror device manufacturing processes. This could certainly offset most restraints affecting the market.
