Class 6/7 MV Series provides owners a variety of potential configurations

The Class 6/7 International Truck MV Series was designed from the inside out with the goal of delivering a truck that is easily configurable to produce maximum output day in and day out. 

The redesigned features include new cab doors with a lower bottom glass edge and removed vent window, giving the driver a single large piece of glass to look through, greatly improving side visibility and reducing blind spots. By reshaping the doors and side glass, the position of the optional pedestal mirrors was optimized so drivers turn their heads less and keep their eyes on the road while reducing neck strain. Second, a new premium gauge cluster with a digital driver display was added to give drivers real-time monitoring of vehicle operation and other important alerts in clear sight. The new display also offers up to 15 customizable digital gauges.

The new premium instrument panel features a customizable digital display suitable for any medium-duty application. The flat-panel dash contains space for up to 30 customizable switches ensuring functionality for any type of body that is mounted on the back. The switches offer large, easy to read text and are backlit for easy viewing at night. Next, an easy-access column-mounted stalk shifter was integrated to help keep drivers' hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. The new stalk shifter placement and lower instrument panel design improves leg room for the driver, especially at the knee. 

The MV Series is available in a variety of specifications: Regular Cab, Extended Cab, and Crew Cab. It is available with the choice of either the Cummins B6.7 or L9 engine, both of which have been engineered for reliability and durability in order to deliver lower costs of ownership with maximum uptime. The standard transmission on the MV Series is the Allison 1000 HS automatic, with Allison FuelSense 2.0, with DynActive Shifting as an available option that features a patented torque converter to provide infinitely variable shift points based on vehicle configuration operating conditions.

The MV Series is also equipped with a new HVAC system, designed for reliability, which includes a high-performance MAX defrost feature.

To further improve driver productivity and safety, the MV Series features Diamond Logic, an advanced electrical system that streamlines chassis and body equipment integration and allows customers to program automated tasks. Equipped with the Diamond Logic electrical system, the MV Series will get the job done with both safety and precision by offering customers nearly 200 factory available body integration and driver efficiency features, plus the ability to customize more vehicle functions.

Like all International models, the MV Series can be managed digitally through the OnCommand Connection platform, which features the company's leading-edge Advanced Remote Diagnostics system designed to enhance fleet efficiency, as well as Over-The-Air (OTA) programming through the nine-pin OnCommand LINK device.
