A Brief History of International Trucks
International Trucks was founded in 1902 and grew to be one of the top truck producers in the United States and beyond. Navistar International, originally called “International Harvester Company,” purchased International in 1909. Navistar International started off by manufacturing agricultural vehicles. They then began expanding and diversifying their lineup to include construction vehicles, medium, heavy, and severe-duty trucks, military vehicles, and school and commercial buses. They also produce V8 diesel engines for Ford full-size pickup trucks. Today, the International Trucks brand includes a variety of medium-duty, over-the-road, and severe-service trucks. International Trucks are extremely capable and dependable for all your needs.
