Answering the call since WWI.

While International Harvester started in farm equipment, the company was quickly pressed into service to produce military vehicles for World War I. We gained even more valuable military experience when we switched over our entire commercial operations during World War II to produce M-series trucks for the Marine Corps and Navy. Our vehicles earned a reputation for toughness and durability under extreme battlefield conditions. A reputation that lives on today in our International® brand military vehicles.

Our History

Navistar has deep roots in the trucking industry.

Founder of Navistar, Cyrus McCormick, built first the mechanical reaper in 1831 and later formed the International Harvester Company, which is presently known as Navistar.

Commercial Platform

Navistar Defense has the ability to produce commercial-level volumes of trucks.

In fact, we can build 100,000 trucks a year, while other government contractors can only handle 3,000 – 5,000/yr.


Success Story:

Breaking delivery records to save lives.

When you're making armored vehicles to protect the troops, there's a special kind of urgency. That's why Navistar Defense is so proud of our manufacturing quality and efficiency. No story illustrates that better than the production of our MaxxPro® MRAP Recovery Vehicle.
